Does the City require dog licensing and restrictions?
Yes. The City requires all dogs to be on a leash or “at heel” when off the owner’s property. The City limits the number of dogs and cats to three each unless licensed as a commercial kennel. Routine patrols are provided in the City to reduce dogs running at large, thus improving the safety of pedestrians as well as vehicle operators. Annual licensing of dogs is required to assist in returning strays to owners and to protect the public from rabies as well as potentially dangerous dogs. Owners of pit bulls are required to comply with certain criteria, like appropriate confinement and insurance, as well as notification to neighbors that a potentially dangerous dog resides near them; these requirements are waived if the particular pit bull is certified to be a “K-9 Good Citizen” by the TC Animal Control.
