Foothills County- Responsible Dog Owners By-Law (New)
Established March 13, 2019
The updated bylaw offers Foothills Patrol Peace Officers improved functional tools to deal with concerns from residents.  The bylaw now identifies and describes varying levels of aggressive dog behavior, dog bites and resulting impact on victims with fines that reflect the different levels.  Foothills Patrol Peace Oficers now are able to seize a dog that has been involved in a biting typ incident, in order to have a behavioural assessment completed.  The results of the behavioural assessment ensure appropriate steps are taken throughout the investigation, issuance of violation tickets and any necessary Court applications.
