Letter to the Editor: Dog owners should leash their pets at all times
Last updated 3/23/2022 at 11:12am
I would like to ask all dog owners to leash their dogs at all times and have police enforcement of this public nuisance. It is illegal to have your dog (or any pet) off leash according to Ord. 1223 § 2 (https://www.codepublishing.com/WA/Mukilteo/html/Mukilteo09/Mukilteo0960.html#9.60.060). The only place where dogs are allowed off leash is the dog park. This means school grounds are also required to be on-leash.
It is dangerous for pets to run off leash where they can (and have, I've witnessed and been a victim of) knock people over, tackle people, or bite them. Next time this happens I will call the police.
