It's important to keep dogs on a leash in public spaces for the safety and comfort of all community members. Even if your dog is well-behaved and friendly, not everyone knows your dog, and some people may feel intimidated by an unleashed pet. 

Additionally, leashing your dog is more than a considerate practice — it's a legal requirement in many areas, including parks, public spaces, and facilities. The law specifies that leashes should be no longer than 10 feet to ensure control and safety. 

By leashing your dog, you make our community spaces enjoyable and secure for everyone. For detailed information about leash laws and guidelines in Mesa County, please visit the Mesa County Animal Services website.
