Animal at Large, and Dogs in Off-Leash Areas

The new bylaw states that the Owner of an Animal shall ensure that such Animal is not At Large. Animals must always remain on a Permitted Leash in Town limits except when on the private Property of the Owner or in “Off-Leash Areas”.

Unattended Animals

The Owner of an Animal shall ensure that such Animal shall not be left unattended while tethered or tied on premises where the public access will be impeded, whether the access is express or implied, while considering the well-being of the Animal. 

The Owner of an Animal left unattended in a motor vehicle shall ensure that:

  • The Animal is restrained in a manner that prevents contact between the Animal and any member of the public; 
  • The Animal has suitable ventilation; and 
  • The Animal is not left unattended in a motor vehicle if the weather conditions are not suitable for containment of an Animal.
