West Island City notes that penalties range from $200 to $20,000, depending on the severity of the violations, for each violation committed, and for each dog.
Pointe-Claire city officials advise that public safety inspectors will conduct awareness campaigns with dog owners in the coming months to ensure compliance with the new ordinance, which is in line with county dog rules.
All dog owners must register their pet within 30 days of purchase or the day the dog reaches three months of age. Owners are then sent a tag with a number and an integrated chip that their pet must wear for the rest of their life. Dogs must be kept on a leash less than 6 feet (1.85 meters) at all times unless they are in a private fenced-in area or in a reserved dog walking area. Collection after your dog is mandatory and the droppings must be deposited in a trash can.
Penalties for violating the dog ordinance range from $200 to $20,000, depending on the severity of the violations.
