After various incidents with dogs, the Ramstein-Miesenbach Office of Public Order wants to remind dog owners of the danger prevention ordinance that regulates the walking of dogs inside and outside of towns.
Dog owners must be physically able to walk dogs and must know how to walk them safely. Furthermore, they must keep their dogs on a leash while walking them on public streets and facilities as well as in housing areas. In all other areas, dogs must be automatically put on a leash when other people approach.
Additionally, anyone walking dogs must remove the dog’s feces in public areas and on sidewalks.
Dogs must be secured on private properties so they cannot escape and cause danger to motorists, pedestrians and themselves.
Violations of the danger prevention ordinance are considered administrative offenses and can be punished with fines up to €5,000.
