The Town is committed to working with residents and visitors to create a safe, healthy, and caring environment for animals and people. The purpose of animal control is to help ensure that owners take responsibility for their dogs' actions so they can be a positive addition to the community.

Dog Licensing

All dogs must be licensed within the Town of The Blue Mountains. The licensing requirement applies to all residents including those that stay in the community full-time or seasonally. 

A license must be purchased as soon as you become a dog owner or on or before March 15th every year. Owners will receive a metal dog tag showing the serial number and year of issue.

All dogs must be leashed when not on their owner’s property. The only exceptions are the off-leash dog parks at Moreau Park in Thornbury and at Heritage Park in Craigleith. These enclosed dog parks include a staging area and an open green space for dogs to run and play.

For more information please contact By-law Enforcement at 519-599-3131 Ext 249.

Dog Kennel Licence

Anyone who wishes to operate a dog kennel must obtain an approved Dog Kennel Licence. Completed applications can be submitted by email to By-law Enforcement.
