Does Liberty have a leash law?

Yes. By City ordinance, all dogs must be physically restrained at all times, including if the animal is on its own property. Acceptable restraint methods include: 

  • On a leash which is held securely by the owner or a responsible party. 
  • Confined within an enclosed space within the real property limits of the owner. This includes invisible fences, which set a boundary line for the dogs.
