Owning a dog is a big responsibility. It is like caring for another child! This responsibility extends past the proper care and training for your dog but also to your dog's behavior. Oxnard City Code Section 5-42 requires dog to be on a leash. All dogs must be under the control of the guardian at all times. This means when the dog is not on your property, it must be under your direct control. The best way to control your dog is with a leash. This law aims to protect the health and safety of our citizens. In the City of Oxnard, dogs may not run at large in places open to and used by the public such as the public beach, street, sidewalk, alley, or park without the owner or another responsible person capable of controlling the animal on a leash. When animals are not on a leash, they must be restrained either behind a fence or in some other enclosure that will prevent their escape. A leash can save your dog's life and can keep your dog out of fights, out of garbage cans, out of traffic, and out of dangerous places. But most of all, it can keep your dog close to you so he won't get lost.
