City hosts 10 education sessions about dog rules, off-leash areas
Neighbors who have questions about dog parks and off-leash
policies are invited to join city representatives at 10 education
sessions in May & June.
Representatives of Boise Parks & Recreation, the City
Clerk's Office and the Boise Police Department will answer
questions and distribute information in parks and preserves
throughout the city.
The goal is to explain rules pertaining to dog leashing,
licensing and removal of pet waste. City representatives also hope
pet owners with help with compliance.
"The dog off-leash areas and parks are intended to provide
neighborhoods with accessible places for owners to exercise their
pets and enjoy time with their dogs," said Doug Holloway, director
of Boise Parks & Recreation. "We welcome the opportunity to
hear feedback from neighbors about our parks and policies."
