Lodi City Council to consider stricter rules for vicious dogs – Top News – InsuranceNewsNet.com

The Lodi City Council may adopt tougher rules regarding vicious dogs at a July 16 meeting.

Officer Jennifer Bender, Lodi’s Animal Services supervisor, recommended a number of updates to the city’s municipal code that deals with animals at a special meeting Tuesday morning. Many of the updates related to vicious or potentially dangerous dogs within the city limits.

If adopted July 16, the city’s municipal code will include language that states any dog or domestic animal must be on a leash or under control of its owner when not in an enclosed area. The updated municipal code will also state that if the animal is still on its owner’s property, it must also be under the owner’s control.

“We’ve had several cases where an owner will be in their yard with their off-leash animal and walk into their house, and they don’t see the animal leave the property,” Bender said Tuesday. “That’s typically when an incident happens. This makes a person more liable if the animal is loose in their own yard.”
