The Town of Camp Verde is looking at adding leash laws to its rules governing animals on town property.Camp Verde City Council recently discussed changes to the town’s animal code regarding pets. The new rule would make it mandatory that pets be on leashes in public, as demonstrated by Jack, a 6-year-old German Shepherd owned by Lynn White.

Last week, the Town Council continued a discussion about the issue at its Wednesday, April 16, regular meeting.

Councilwoman Carol German said that she brought the issue up before the council because she wanted to have a leash law in place before any signs were put up on town property.

“I’m serious about having some kind of leash law,” German said. “We couldn’t do it unless the ordinance is changed. I wanted to get it on the signs before the signs are ordered.”

German said she wanted to see the town move forward with this now.
