Fun Facts

  • Dogs can enjoy Town pathways on a leash with their owners
  • There are two off-leash parks in Town, totaling 6 hectares.
  • Dispensers with biodegradable waste bags can be found in 10 locations on Town parks and pathways.


Under the Animal Bylaw 04/2016, both dogs and cats in Cochrane must be licensed. Cats must remain on their owner's property and may not roam. Dogs must always be under their owner's control when off their property, and must be on leash except in designated off-leash areas.
