Lane County Dog Leash Regulations

Lane Code:    6.450.540, 7.005, 7.005.110, 7.005.140

At Zumwalt Park all dogs must be under "Immediate Control".

In Lane County, no dog owner shall permit a dog to be at large.  
“Dog-at-Large” means a dog off the premises of the owners property and NOT under the owner's immediate control.

So what exactly is "immediate control"? Immediate = done at once or done instantly, and control = the restriction of activity and the power to restrain.  A leash is one form of immediate control. A dog who instantly obeys audible commands, is likely under immediate control. An unleased dog who is out of ear shot, will likely not be in under immediate control.

A dog owner, whose dog runs at large, commits a Class C violation if the dog has been spayed/neutered or a Class B violation if the dog is fertile. Plus, a dog owner is deemed to be negligent per se for the actions of a dog at large when the dog causes injury to a person or property.

No County Park is an "off-leash park". 

At Armitage Park two fenced areas are provide for dogs to be off-leash, and they must still abide by the rules for safe conduct.
