A new Dog Control Bylaw has been approved by Council. To view this bylaw please visit our Bylaws page.
There will no longer be a requirement that owners license their dogs. As an alternative owners will be required to obtain an identification tag for their dog (which, as defined, may include: physical tags worn by the dog, a tattoo, or microchip). This requirement will assist in reuniting lost dogs with their owners and distinguishing domesticated dogs from feral or other stray dogs, but avoids imposing the administrative burden requiring the County to administer the issuance of licenses or dog tags. Each owner will require an identification for dogs over 6 months old.
