Walking Your Dog Responsibly



Walking your dog is a great way to let your companion stretch its legs and burn off some energy. The law (MBMC 5.01.040) requires that you keep your dog on a leash no longer than 6-feet long at all times in public. Remember to read all posted signs before entering an area with your dogs.  Dogs are strictly prohibited on school grounds, the beach and the beach bike path (MBMC 12.08.020). 


Dogs should not be left unattended and tethered to objects in public (such as a parking meter or tree).  This is against the law and you may be fined per MBMC 5.01.040.  Also your dog may be taken into custody for safekeeping by animal control officers if they are unable to find its owner.  If you have to make a stop at a business (store/restaurant) it is best that you leave your dog at home or have someone responsible hold your dog while you conduct your business.


Remember to always keep identification on your dog’s collar when you venture out.  Per MBMC 5.01.200, it is required that your dog have its Manhattan Beach dog license tag attached to its collar.


Always carry doggy bags so you can clean up after your pet and properly dispose of waste.  Per MBMC 5.01.310, you are required to carry in your possession a suitable wrapper, bag, or container to pick up after your pet.
