In Arizona, your dog should be on a leash at all times. No dog shall be permitted at large. Dog owners are often unaware of the Arizona laws that require taking proper measures to restrain your pet to protect others from potential harm that can arise out of your dog’s actions. Below are the basic of Arizona Dog Leash Laws.
The Basics of Arizona Dog Leash Law
Each dog should be confined with an enclosure on the owner’s property, so that the dog is confined entirely to the owner’s property, or on a leash not to exceed six feet in length, directly under the owner’s control when not on the owner’s property.
