Is there a leash law in Dover?

No, there is no leash law per se. We do have a by-law which mandates the owner to be in control of the animal at all times. If the animal is not within sight of their owner, they are not in control. Various open space recreation properties in Dover have different rules regarding dog walking so please check the rules for specific properties that are available on this website.
