How many dogs do you think an individual should be allowed to have off-leash in one of the city’s designated park areas?
Animal & Bylaw Services is currently reviewing the Responsible Pet Ownership Bylaw and is seeking input from Calgarians. Dog owners and off-leash area users are encouraged to take a few minutes to fill out a short online survey to provide their views regarding the number of dogs an individual should be allowed to have off-leash at one time.
Currently, there is no limit on the number of canine pets that individual citizens can have off-leash at one time within Calgary’s designated off-leash areas. However, it is specified that dogs must be under control – within sight and responsive to commands – at all times.
The questionnaire is now available to fill out online at calgary.ca/animalservices until the end of May. Citizens without access to the internet may also participate in the survey by calling 3-1-1.
