  2. All dogs must be obedient to recall. If your dog does not return immediately to your call, keep it leashed.
  3. All dogs must be attended by their owners at all times. If your dog is on the Meadow, you must be on the Meadow.
  4. Carry a leash for each dog in your care. Limit: three dogs per person.
  5. No unattended children are permitted in the off-leash area.
  6. All dogs must be licensed and current on vaccinations.
  7. Do not use the Meadow if your dog is aggressive, unruly or in heat. 
  8. Pick up your dog’s droppings and dispose of them in the receptacles.
