Do I need to leash my pet?

Animals must be kept on a leash when off their own property or otherwise under the owner's control.

  • The number of allowable animals may be no more than three dogs, three cats, or a combination of five dogs and cats.
  • Puppies and kittens under four months of age are excluded.
  • Excessive barking or other noise disturbance by an animal is considered a municipal violation, subject to prosecution through the Manchester Municipal Court. The Police Department can only enforce this ordinance provision if the officer can personally hear the barking or other animal noise.
