Dog Licenses

  • Dog licenses are required. The City uses Oakland County for Animal Control, and they will conduct a dog census during the summer so make sure your dog is licensed by June 1.

General Animal Information

  • Dogs are required to be on a leash at all times when on public property. This includes sidewalks and walking paths through parks. Dogs are only allowed off-leash in the dog park or on your own private property.
  • Please – be considerate and pick up your dog’s waste. No one wants to look at or step in dog excrement.
  • A maximum of three dogs and/or cats are allowed per household by City Ordinance.
