There is no better feeling than having a best friend who sleeps, eats your food and loves to cuddle all the time. Especially if it’s your dog, we’re talking about your fur babies. The only setback is cleaning up after them or going for a walk when you’re exhausted.
However, they can’t just say no, if they need to do their business, you need to turn them off. So we got curious, if you walk your dog, is it okay to let him do his business anywhere? Neighbors’ yards, schools, parks, whatever. Is it legal to leave your number two dog on other properties?
Is it legal to let your dog poop in a school?
Funnily enough it turns out that a lot of these rules are up to the schools in question, but usually they don’t mind if you walk your dog in the fields or in the school yard, you just have to clean up after them, so pack some poop bags.
Is it legal to let your dog poop in local parks?
In some parks, dogs are not allowed in certain areas, in others, dogs are strictly forbidden, you must comply with them. However, at parks that allow dogs, you’re free to let your dog do its business wherever it pleases, hopefully just not at someone’s picnic. All you’re asked to do is pick it up and throw it in the trash.
Is it legal to let your dog poop at your neighbors?
If your dog takes the number 2 in your neighbor’s yard, it could cause serious problems. Assuming it’s not illegal to let your dog go into their yard, it’s illegal not to pick them up as above. If at any time your neighbor asks you not to let your dog on their property, this is considered trespassing and they may be able to take matters into their own hands if they feel threatened by you or your pet. Again no, it’s not illegal, it’s illegal not to pick it up and can result in a fine of up to $250 for each violation.
