Dog licences

All dogs (including puppies) living within municipal boundaries must have a valid licence worn at all times. If your dog is licensed and your contact information kept up to date, you can be contacted in the event that your pet is found.

For more information about dog licences, or to download a dog licence application, visit the Licences and permits page.

Dogs must be leashed

Dogs must be on a leash and under your control at all times on municipal property, including trails and parks. Dogs are not allowed on the swimming beach at One Mile Lake, however there is a designated "dog beach" on One Mile Lake opposite the swimming beach.

There is also a designated off-leash area located on Cottonwood Street (adjacent to the BMX track) open from dawn to dusk.

The scoop on poop

Whether on public or private property, it is your responsibility to pick up after your pet. Dog excrement is unsanitary, unsightly and can be a health hazard. For your convenience, there are dog bag dispensers at various locations throughout the Village. If you find a doggie bag dispenser in need of refills, please contact us and we will have it filled.

In the winter, when the weather tends to temporarily hide the evidence, please remember that it's the law to pick up after your dog. Failure to do so will result in a fine from Village Bylaw.
