Responsible Dog Ownership in Royal Oak

I have been recently advised that there have been several off-leash dog incidents in the green space between the Royal Oak School and the W.O. Mitchel School. Apparently dog attacks have occurred, a student’s safety was put into jeopardy, and a lock-down was executed when a dog entered inside one of the schools.

Please be a responsible dog owner. This green space is not an off-leash area, neither officially nor unofficially.  The constant disregard for dog leash bylaws has direct safety implications on our community’s students and members. Responsible dog ownership is an important part of avoiding dog-related disputes with your neighbours, and leads to having a happy, healthy dog. Being a responsible dog owner means complying with Calgary’s dog-related bylaws  – please ensure that you lead by example.
