Dogs are required to be on a leash or under restraint. An animal is considered under restraint under any of the following conditions:
- It is humanely controlled by a leash held by a competent person.
- It is securely tethered in a humane manner within the property limits of its owner or keeper.
- The animal is confined on the premises of its owner.
- Under verbal control on private property.
In all cases, restraint shall be sufficient to prevent the animal from biting, attacking, or having physical contact with any person, unattended children, or animal.
Note: Cats are exempt from the leash law and are not required to be on a leash.
