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.
The state does not mandate that dogs remain on leashes at all times. However, out-of-control dogs by law are not allowed to roam on people’s property, state parks, sidewalks, or public highways.
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.
