Dogs must be under the control of their owners at all times. When dogs are not on their own property, owners must ensure that their pets are under immediate control by means of a leash, cord, chain or like device, and that the dog does not commit an act that is declared by Village ordinance to be a public nuisance. It is unlawful to permit a dog to run loose or trespass on private property. By law, owners must clean up after their dogs if they defecate on other than their own property.
In Winnetka, dogs are not allowed in Village parks or on most beaches. They are allowed on Centennial Beach, but only with the appropriate pass. Call the Winnetka Park District at 847-501-2040 for more information.
Village ordinance limits the number of dogs kept in a household to three.
