What do Dog Owners Need to Know?

The Village Code requires all dog owners to keep their dog on a leash not more than six feet long when off your property.

Dog owners are also required to clean up after your dog when walking off your property. Besides keeping Pelham Manor neat and clean, cleaning up after your dog will improve the water quality of Long Island Sound. Studies have determined that one of the main causes of excess nutrient loading in the Sound is from canine waste carried into the Sound through the storm water drainage system.

New York State Law requires that every dog be licensed. Pelham Manor issues and renews dog licenses. For information regarding dog licensing, call 738-8820.
