[ARCHIVED] Loose Dog Calls on the Rise in Riverside

Riverside Police Department has had an increase in calls involving animals at large and barking dogs.

Over the past few months there have been many calls in which the police department has had to respond to handle these issues. This takes at least one officer off the streets.

Loose animals cause an array of concerns for our community. Our children are at greatest risk, having the least ability to fend off an attacking dog.

Loose dogs also get into trash and strew it about and it gives our community an unsightly appearance to have dogs roaming our streets and neighborhoods.

Riverside Police remind you to check your gates on your fences to ensure they close and lock properly. Check your fence lines for loose boards, holes, or any damage that would allow your dog to escape from the back yard.

Remember - the Village of Riverside has a leash law requiring your dog to be on a leash when out of your house, or kept in a fenced in area. Maintain your dog’s vaccinations, and keep the paperwork from your veterinarian.

Be mindful of the noise or barking your dog may make.

If your dog is prone to barking, be sure to bring your dog inside at night so your neighbors can sleep without being disturbed. It is only neighborly to be responsive to the barking or noise your dog makes during the day - and the length of time the dog is barking. You may have shift workers in your neighborhood, or those who simply want to enjoy the tranquility of the outdoors.

Ensure your dog always has shade, food, and plenty of water at all times, but especially in the summer. These things can cause a dog to get noisy as well get out.
