Responsible Pet Ownership

  • Share

Ward 10 official website
To ensure the enjoyment and safety of all parks and pathway users, the City of Calgary is reminding dog owners about the Responsible Pet Ownership Bylaw.
All parks in Calgary are designated on-leash areas unless otherwise indicated by signage. The bylaw also requires that a dog off-leash must be under its handler’s control at all times.
“All Calgarians have the right to enjoy our parks, and the safety of owners and their beloved pets is of utmost importance. Just because your dog is in an off-leash area, that does not mean they can be out of control,” says Damian Cole, Superintendent, Bylaw North. “Your dog must remain in your sight, and be able to respond to you when you call it to come back.”
For more information you can visit the City of Calgary website, or read the Responsible Pet Ownership Bylaw.
