Please be mindful of the neighborhoods where you walk your dog(s). 

All dogs are required by Ordinance to be on a leash.  In addition, you are required to curb your pet and pick up the waste matter, disposing of properly.  Lets work together to keep our neighborhoods, yards, Borough Parks and School ground clean and healthy for our community. 

Thank you for this consideration.
