When you are out in the community, your dog must be on leash at all times. At an off-leash park, make sure that your dog is under your control at all times. This means that he must be able to respond to voice, sound or visual signs and be in your sight at all times.
Always pick up after your dog; this helps prevent the spread of disease from dog-to-dog and dog-to-human. If you forget a bag, look for one of the poop bag dispensers near Town pathways.
Pets left in cars must have sufficient ventilation, but not a way to reach people who walk by the car. Keep in mind that on a hot day, a dog can suffer heat stroke in 10 minutes. It is wisest not to leave your dog in the car on summer days.
Dogs in the back of pick-up trucks must be secured at all times.
