LEASH LAW

Updated: Oct 19, 2021

For the safety of all residents, PLEASE keep your dog on a leash at all times while at the Piper's Meadow Park or walking in the neighborhood. And please clean up after them, it is a City of Houston Law!

Thank you for your cooperation!


Houston Leash Laws

Under the Houston Municipal Code, a dog owner “or any other person with the right of possession” of the dog must ensure that the animal does not “run at large.” The Code defines “running at large” as allowing the animal to be on public or private property without the owner or handler having “direct physical control” of the animal. This is a strict liability law. In other words, a person can be found guilty of violating it “without regard to whether the person was acting with a culpable mental state.”
