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.
