Leashing and "Running At Large"

Posted on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 03:10 PM

In Yorkton, you must keep all dogs on a leash whenever they are on any property other than your own - unless you are at a designated "leash free" area.

You are responsible for making sure that your dogs do not "run at large". A dog "running at large" means that it is unleashed, off its owner's property and not under its owner's control. 

We have designated Wiggley Field a "leash free" area. We encourage you to use this area whenever you want to exercise your dog off its leash.
