We had a few residents raising the question whether dogs have to be kept on a lead, please see below dog owner responsibilities or click onto the pdf to view them all.
Keeping your pet under control
Dogs must be kept under control and must be accompanied at all times while in a public place. They must either be kept on a lead or trained to “heel”, i.e. remain next to the person walking the dog.
It is against the law not to clean up after your dog. The fine is €150. Dog poop bags are widely available from many shops for a very low price and are ideal for cleaning up after your dog.
