Charlottetown residents are reminded to keep their dogs on leashes and to pick up after them.
The Dog Control Bylaw states that anyone who lets their pet run at large within Charlottetown’s boundaries is guilty of an offence.
Anyone who allows their pet to defecate on public or private property other than their own without removing it immediately is also guilty of an offence.
Anyone who commits an offence under the Dog Control Bylaw can be fined between $100 and $500 for a first offence, between $200 and $1,000 for a subsequent offence and/or imprisonment for up to 90 days.
