New Haven

WEST HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — New rules for dog owners in West Haven Monday. The City Council passed a resolution to limit the length of dog leashes in town to six feet.

West Haven joins Madison and Greenwich as the only places in Connecticut with this specific of a dog leash law.

Only one person voted against the measure.
