Frequently Asked Questions

Does california have a statewide dog leash law?

While California does not have a statewide dog leash law, it does allow local governments (counties, cities, and towns) to pass their own leash law ordinances. For example, in Sacramento County, with few exceptions, a dog is not allowed to run "at-large."

Does california have one bite rule for dogs?

California does not use the " one bite rule " for most dog bite cases. Instead, it holds dog owners strictly liable for the legal damages caused by their dog's bites. However, there are exceptions to the strict liability law in California's dog bite statute. Where it does not apply, the one bite rule can become a factor.

Is it legal to own a dog in california?

Pets you can’t legally own in California. California has some of the strictest laws in the nation on animal ownership. The list of animals that cannot be kept as pets is long and detailed and maintained by the California Department of Fish and Game.

What is the legal pet limit in california?

Weight limits are also legal, letting your landlord declare that pets must weigh less than a specified weight like 20 or 30 pounds. California, however, passed a law in 2012 that states landlords may not limit pets based on certain requirements.
