Dogs in Parks

Sooke recognizes dogs as an important part of families. To ensure the safe enjoyment of our parks we request pet owners clean up after their pets and observe the pet regulations. Sooke Parks and CRD Pound appreciates the efforts of all the responsible dog owners visiting our parks!

Dogs are not to run at large or be in any public place, unless the dog is under the effective control of a competent person, or is confined by a leash or chain.
