Pets have to be on a leash no longer than six feet long, and yes–their owners are required to clean up after them. Also they can’t be  left unattended and tied to any trees, fences, rocks or any other object.

Lastly–be nice to other pets and humans. Yours needs to be under control at all times when not in your car.
