Did you know there are both laws and rules on the books about how you handle your pet in Dublin, in Muirfield, and therefore in Weybridge, too?
City of Dublin code specifically states dogs must be kept “under control” when off leash in public areas, or must otherwise be on a leash. They don’t mention cats being on a leash because… you know… they’re cats.
Similarly, you may have seen repeated email reminders from Muirfield Village that pet owners — especially folks walking their pets — are required to pick up after their pets when they do their business, if you know what we mean.
These rules and laws are in place to keep Weybridge (and Muirfield, and Dublin) clean and presentable, as well as safe for the pets, kids, and everyone else enjoying our common areas, walking trails, yards, and so forth.
So please: leash your cat — or dog — or keep them under control, but also be sure to clean up after them. Your neighbors will thank you!
Picking up after your dog is not only being a good neighbor, it’s the law in Dublin. It’s also good for the environment—dog poop left on the ground can make its way into our sewer systems during rain events, polluting freshwater supplies.
