What could get my pet deemed a nuisance?

Category: Animal Issues

A nuisance violation is a penalty for any of the following pet behaviors:

  • Frequent and habitual barking, howling, screeching, yelping or baying by a dog, cat or other animals.
  • Allowing an animal to create offensive odors, excessive noise or unsanitary conditions which are considered of dangerous to the health, comfort or safety of the public.
  • Allowing a dog to “go to the bathroom” on school grounds, a City park or other public or private property
      • It is not considered to be a nuisance violation if you immediately clean up after your dog - called “Poop-Scoop” laws in some communities
    • Allowing your pet to scratch, dig or defecate on any lawn, tree, shrub, plant, building, or any other public or private property than that of the owner or person in charge of the animal
