Do I have to license my dog every year?
Yes. Licensing provides the City with a method of ensuring that dogs are properly vaccinated against rabies. Additionally, dog owners receive great value from a license in that authorities make every effort to return lost dogs to their owners when the dog is wearing a current tag. Other dogs that are not licensed are transported to an animal shelter where impounding and boarding fees are charged.
Does the City have leash laws?
Yes. Please see Section 3.12 of our Municipal Code - "Leashes and collars required; dogs running at large".
