Dogs are required to be on a leash and under control of their owner, at all times.
Local leash laws are intended to protect the health and safety of both the people and pets who enjoy
visiting our many parks and open areas. Pet owners who violate this ordinance are subject to a fine.
The exception to this rule is the Sacramento area designated “off leash” dog parks listed below.
It is important that all Sacramento area citizens feel safe. Dog owners should respect their fellow citizens and leash their dogs within the Cities and County of Sacramento. Find specific leash laws.
