Dogs are required to be on leash in all public areas and parks, with the exception of designated, fenced, off leash dog parks.
Friendly reminders to all dog owners
- Clean up after your dog – Pet waste left on the ground is more than smelly and unsightly – It pollutes our water and poses a health risk for pets and people, especially children. Please make sure to clean up after your pet and properly dispose of it in a plastic bag in a garbage receptacle.
- Dogs are not allowed in children's play areas of city parks unless they are a designated service animal.
- Enforcement of the leash law and other animal regulations is provided by the San Mateo County Animal Control through a contract with Peninsula Humane Society.
- All dogs in San Mateo County are required to be licensed. A San Mateo County animal license may be purchased online, via mail or in person. A current rabies certificate is required.
