ALERT: PUBLIC HEARING ON SB 15
Wed., January 21 at 9am in Room 102 LOB
SB15 requires owners of companion animals to leash such animals in the presence of a service dog. Failure to do so is a violation.
DOGS is requesting that you attend the hearing or write the Senators to oppose this bill.
DOGS is concerned about the requirement to leash one’s animal in the presence of a service animal. If in an area where dogs are commonly found off lead, such as an “off-leash” pet recreation area or during a competition event, the service dog owner should not have an expectation that other pets will be on lead.
