The family dog is more than just a pet to most owners. Your beloved pooch is a member of your family. However, the four-legged family member doesn’t know when he or she is supposed to follow certain rules of neighborhood etiquette while out on walks. It is up to you, the dog owner, to help your pet be a respectful member of our Westlake community. Here are a few things to remember as a responsible dog owner:
•Always keep your dog on a leash while walking in the neighborhood, on trails, or any public space.
•Please do not allow dogs into your neighbors’ front yard, bushes, and flower bed areas.
•Please pick up after your dog wherever he or she goes.
•Tie a plastic bag to your dog’s leash and you will never be caught unprepared.
Having your dog on a leash is required by our Town ordinance. Thanks so much for your help!
