Keep your dog on a leash when out in public

August 5, 2021

The County of Prince Edward is reminding people to leash their dogs when out in public.

The municipal by-law requires every dog to be leashed when not on the premises of its owner and when in a public park.

Keeping your dog on a leash helps keep the public safe, ensures your dog doesn’t trespass on neighbouring property, and prevents your dog from chasing other animals and wildlife.

  • For dog owners who want to let their dog run free, a dedicated, fenced-in dog park is available within Delhi Park in Picton.
  • Dogs must be leashed in all other areas of Delhi Park and any neighbouring properties such as Glenwood Cemetery.
  • Owners must also leash their dogs when out on the Millennium Trail and while enjoying Wellington Rotary Beach.
  • Please “stoop and scoop.” The municipal by-law requires owners to remove any excrement left by the dog on public or private properties.
  • For more information, contact the County of Prince Edward at 613.476.2148 extension 1023, 613.962.9108 extension 1023, or info@pecounty.on.ca.

Please note: The County of Prince Edward provides this information as a service to the general public. While we do our best to provide accurate information, construction projects and associated service disruptions are subject to change based on weather, road, traffic, and other uncontrollable conditions.
