When walking your dog in the community, your pet must be leashed as required by Owners Association Deed Restriction 3.06, which state that “no animal shall be allowed to run at large” and by Williamson County Animal Laws, which state that “Williamson County and all its cities require dogs to be under their owner’s control at all times. This means they must be on a leash or confined to their owner’s property. Dogs that run loose are subject to impoundment and their owners are responsible for impoundment and boarding fees. They also risk a citation and fines of up to $500.”
It doesn’t take much to be reminded that there are pets in our community. In fact, if you don’t watch your step, your liable to step in one such reminder! Besides being unsightly and smelly, animal waste can be hazardous to the health of our children who play in the community and to other pets. One of the most common forms of disease transmission between dogs is through fecal matter. It is important to immediately clean up after your pet. Take along a baggie to pick up waste and then dispose of it properly. Pet waste disposal stations are located all along Block House Drive. By taking a few simple steps to clean up after your pet, you can contribute not only to the beautification of our community, but to the elimination of one of the most irritating nuisances in our community.
It is equally as important to remember that Deed Restriction 3.06 states that “no animal shall be allowed to make an unreasonable amount of noise or to become a nuisance”. When our pets are outdoors, let’s keep them quiet and not let them become a nuisance to our neighbors.
