New Avalon Dog Regulation

At its meeting of May 2, 2017, the Avalon City Council adopted new regulations on an urgency basis for the care and safety of the public and our dog population.  The review of the existing Avalon codes has come about because of two recent attacks on people and small animals by vicious dogs.  The City Council and management are asking for the public's help and support to ensure a safe environment for all of us. 
A summary of the existing rules are as follows:

  1. Owners must be capable of controlling their dogs at all times and have them on a leash not more than 6 feet long.
  2. Dogs are not permitted on any public beaches, Crescent Avenue in the pedestrian area, the Cabrillo Mole and Pleasure Pier except for transport across these public areas and they must be on a leash and be muzzled.
It is suggested boaters who don't have muzzles for their dogs use the dinghy dock between the clubs to bring their dogs ashore.
