Before you take your dog to an off leash area
- License your dog
- Have your dog vaccinated
- Make sure your dog obeys your voice commands immediately
- Remember to bring your pooper scooper
At an off leash area
- Look out for other users. The City has a multi-use policy, so expect to share off leash areas with people that don't bring dogs
- Keep your dog within your sight
- Have your leash always ready, even in off leash areas
Remember to use your pooper scooper
- Bear in mind Animal Licensing and Control Bylaw C13145 and Parkland Bylaw C2202
