We have been getting an increase in complaints about animals running at large and not under the control of their owner. Problems have included residents being apprehensive about going since they aren’t sure about whether a dog is vicious or just overly friendly.
Lakeland Ordinances require that pets be under the control of the owner at all time when not on the owners property. Please enjoy your dogs, but keep them under your control when they are out of a fenced area!
Violations can lead to a citation for letting an animal running at large and/or animal facility fees if an animal must be picked up.
Your neighbors will appreciate your cooperation in this matter!
