Ordinances Related to Dogs

Each city has an ordinance that states dogs are not allowed to roam off the property of the owner unless under the control of the owner on a leash. 

If a dog is found in violation of the ordinance, the dog may possibly be impounded to a kennel and the owner fined. 

A kennel license must be purchased if a homeowner has 3 or more dogs (Section 62-181).
