City Approves Leash Law

The next time you walk your dog in Amarillo, make sure it's on a leash. 

This afternoon, Amarillo City Commissioners approved an ordinance that will make it mandatory for all dogs to be on leashes.

The only exceptions---if you are on your private property or in a training class you can control your dog by oral commands.

This decision comes after numerous dog attacks last year. 

The city also approved creating three leash-free parks. 

Sections of Thompson, John Stiff, and South East Parks will designated for pups to roam free.
