Dog owners love their pets like another member of the family, but having a pooch means added responsibility.
Watertown Animal Control and the Health Department have published an information pamphlet called “Responsible Dog Ownership in Watertown.” It features all sorts of information about having a dog in town.
- Dogs must be licensed with the town
- They must be vaccinated for rabies
- They must be leashed when on a public way
- You must pick up after your dog, and
- pet waste may not be disposed of in storm drains
The pamphlet also includes information about Watertown’s dog parks. This includes the town-run one at How Park (Pleasant and Bacon streets) and one at Alta at the Estate, 100 Woodview Lane, which has been opened to the general public.
Also, learn about Animal Control Officer Karen O’Reilly, who works with the Health Department, 149 Main St., Watertown. She can be reached at email@example.com or 617 -972 -6446.
