Dog control
Apr 6, 2011 - 08:40 am
Who do we call to report an unleashed dog? This dog is allowed to run the neighborhood, jump on our gates and rile up our dogs, poop on our lawns and is a nuisance.

We have contacted the owner whose reply is "the dog isn't doing any harm". One neighbor has not only contacted him three times but tried to call someone about it. The older people in the neighborhood don't want to walk around our neighborhood any longer. The dog is a police dog and we are getting tired of it.

Is there someone we can call in Cochran's Crossing? Enough is enough!

Tell them that there is a leash law in Houston, and that next time you see the dog loose, you're going to call animal control (if you haven't already) -- that way they'll be clear where there dog will be if it ends up missing. They might think you're bluffing, so it's only fair to make 100% sure that they know the consequences if they continue letting the dog run loose, before you call animal control. Ideally, you'd get the point across well enough that they modify their behavior themselves, since calling animal control could very well lead to the dog being euthanized.

Do a search for "Animal Control" in the search box at the top of this web site for their information.

Thank you very much. Calling animal control would be the last ditch effort as most of us in this neighborhood really love our pets.

By the way, the dog is a German Shepard and not a "police dog" - I just couldn't think of the correct term!!

I would hate to call animal control just because I'm a dog lover but if you threaten the owner with it, I'd be suprised if he/she didn't keep the dog on a leash or back in the backyard.

My mom has had this issue in her neighborhood. She was told to call the HOA.

I printed off a copy of the covenants (just the page with the dog leash item) and sent it to them. I'm hoping that works. Calling the animal control is a last ditch effort for me but some of my neighbors have done it already. I have dogs of my own and love all animals in general so we will see what happens now. Thanks everyone for the input. It really helps!

Really hope they listen to you and really care about their dog enough to keep him locked up.

Although we did have our dogs get out the other day. We had them back in the house 5 minutes and a skinned knee later!

I do too. The dog is beautiful and it's not the dog's fault.

An accidental dog let out is different than our dogs running the streets all day and night and tearing up things others own!

That made me laugh. My beagle got out last week and I went running through the brambles with my slippers on chasing her. I didn't skin my knee though! :o)

djohn totally downplayed the skinned knee thing....he did this whole running tackle thing and tackled the dog to the ground...the other 2 neighbors that were outside were laughing so hard and one was literally rolling on the ground laughing....but the dog was okay though!
