Leash Law Reminder

We want to remind all residents that it is a City of Charleston law that all pets be restrained with a leash and under owner control within the public right of way or on public and private property. The Daniel Island Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions, state that dogs shall be kept on a leash or otherwise confined in a manner acceptable to the Board whenever outside the dwelling. Daniel Island does have an off-leash and dog run area at the City of Charleston Governor’s Park located north of the Mark Clark Bridge. This is an area that provides for off-leash recreation, training, and exercise opportunities for dog owners. While in dog runs or off-leash areas, animals are required to remain under sufficient strict voice control. For more information or to report off leash violations, please contact the City of Charleston Animal Control Division at 843-720-3915 or 843-743-7200.
