Administration of the Responsible Pet Ownership Bylaw in Calgary includes addressing non-compliant behaviour, dog behaviour in off-leash parks, dogs in public spaces, and the reasonable number of pets in a household within City limits. Public safety and positive interactions between pets and the public are important.
