Dangerous Dogs

A dog may be considered dangerous if:  

  • It has attacked, bitten, caused injury to a person on private or public property, or has shown tendency to do so.      
  • It aggressively pursues or harasses a person or domestic animal while at large.    
  • The dog has attacked, bitten, killed, or caused injury to a domestic animal, or  has aggressively pursued or harassed a domestic animal while off leash.

What to do if the City of Surrey considers your dog dangerous:     

  • Keep the dog in a 6-sided pen when not in the house.     
  • Keep the dog muzzled and on leash when off the property and under the control of a competent person
  • Expect a higher dog licence fee.

Fines for not following the regulations for dangerous dogs are severe.
