RULES

At Upper Noe Dog Play Area (Joby's Run) the emphasis is on play. This small park does not accommodate separate training areas. Commercial or private activities that monopolize playspace or that restrict normal play activity are not appropriate here.

SAN FRANCSICO DOG PLAY AREA RULES, INFRACTIONS and FINES

Always pick up dog waste

Always carry a leash

Leash aggressive dogs

Don't leave dogs unattended

Control excessive noise

Prevent digging and destructive behavior



Listed below is a revised list of dog-related violations. Note one new ordinance has been added, “Bite and Run” (39a H.C.) and the enhancement of the existing ordinance dealing with proper care and feeding of a “Backyard Dog” (41.12c H.C.).

It is now a misdemeanor for a dog owner to leave the scene of a dog-bite incident without the biting dog’s owner first identifying his or her self to the victim of the dog bite. The “Backyard Dog” ordinance now includes very specific conditions regarding the care of dogs kept outdoors. Officers in doubt as to “humaneness” of a dog’s living conditions are encouraged to contact Animal Care and Control Emergency Dispatch (554-9400) for guidance or request their response to the scene for evaluation and further investigation.

When encountering menacing or threatening behavior from any dog, Officers are reminded that they may immediately impound said dog if they believe the dog presents a serious threat to public safety. The dog would then be transported to Animal Care and Control where it would be held pending a vicious and dangerous hearing.
