The city of Toronto is launching a public awareness campaign and enforcement blitz aimed at owners who allow their dogs to be off leash outside of designated leash-free areas.

The city has 57 off-leash parks for dogs, and all dogs must be leashed if outside of these designated areas.

“In 2013, there were a total of 130 complaints regarding dogs running off-leash.  To date in 2014, there have been 440 complaints and 66 charges.  A fine of $360 can be issued for allowing a dog to run at large except in a posted designated leash-free area.” read the city’s news release. 

The city is also reminding dog owners that in order to use the off-leash parks dogs must be vaccinated and licensed. 

Dog licenses in the city of Toronto cost $25 a year.
