Urban Community Dog Owners



With spring in the air and the snow almost gone, it’s that time of year when evidence is left on lawns from the winter months.

The Council of the Municipality of Norfolk Treherne asks all pet owners to please be considerate of other property owners.  Be conscientious pet owners and help make the communities of Lavenham, Rathwell and Treherne pleasant for all residents to live in.

A few things for pet owners to remember:

1.         Ensure your pet is on a leash at all times when off your property.

2.         Don’t let your pet run loose.

3.         Clean up any pet feces.

4.         Constant barking is disturbing to the neighborhood - please take this into consideration if your dog is left outside. 

Please help make your community a clean and friendly place to live in - become a respected pet owner.
