City's Dogs on Leashes Campaign Encourages You to Rock the Leash

Launched in early March, the Dogs on Leashes campaign is about education and raising awareness that all dogs must be on leashes at any city parks. With the exception of Barker Ranch Dog Park, dog owners must comply with leash laws when frequenting city parks. As part of the campaign, those caught obeying dog leash laws by a City representative will receive giveaway items such as dog bandanas and dog treats as our way to say thank you! To reinforce the importance of keeping your dog on a leash, we want you to participate in one of our three contests for a chance to win some great dog-related prizes.


1 - “Park ‘n Leash” Check In Sweepstakes 

Deadline: Monday, April 10

It only takes three easy steps to be entered. Participants may visit any one of the City’s 31 parks, snap a picture of their dog on a leash, and check in on the City’s Facebook page  (www.facebook.com/lakeforestca) with a picture of their dog and tag it with #RockTheLeashLF.


2. Facebook Rock the Leash Photo Contest

Deadline: Friday, April 14

Participants are encouraged to take a picture of their dog with a stylish leash and upload the photo on the Rock the Leash photo contest app found on the City’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/lakeforestca) and on the City’s website (www.lakeforestca.gov/rocktheleash). You can click on the link below to be redirected. The contest encourages friends, family, and other pet lovers to vote on their favorite photos. The top three photos with the most votes win!


3. “Say It and Obey It” Leash Tips Contest

Deadline: Tuesday, May 30

Community members are encouraged to share a tip on how to train or manage their dog to be on a leash. Tips can be emailed to chon@lakeforestca.gov and will be compiled to be published in the July/August Leaflet magazine.
