Sec. 3-3-2. Regulations.

The keeping of such dogs shall be subject to the following conditions:
(a) Leash and Muzzle. No person shall permit a vicious dog to go outside its kennel or rear yard pen unless such dog is securely leashed with a leash no longer than four feet in length. No person shall permit a vicious dog to be kept on a chain, rope, or other type of leash outside its kennel, pen or rear yard unless a person is in physical control of the leash. Such dogs may not be leashed to an inanimate object such as trees, posts, buildings, etc. In addition, such dog on a leash outside the animal's kennel must be muzzled by a muzzling device sufficient to prevent such dog from biting persons or other animals.
(b) Confinement. All vicious dogs shall be securely confined indoors or in a securely enclosed and locked pen, kennel, or rear yard, except when leashed and muzzled as above provided. Such pen, kennel or structure must have secure sides and a secure top attached to the sides. All such structures must have a secure bottom or floor attached to the sides of the structure or the sides must be embedded in the ground no less than two feet. In the case of a rear yard, the yard must be entirely enclosed and the fencing must be of sufficient height, and sufficiently anchored at the bottom, that the dog will not be capable of going over or under the fence or enclosure. All such structures or yards must be locked with a key or combination lock when such animals are within the structure. All such structures must comply with all zoning and building regulations of the city and must be adequately ventilated and kept in a clean and sanitary condition.
(c) Confinement Indoors. No vicious dog may be kept on a porch, patio or in any part of a house or structure that would allow the dog to exit such building on its own volition.
(d) Signs. All owners, keepers or harborers of vicious dogs within the city shall within ten days of the effective date of this article display in a prominent place on their premises a sign easily readable by the public using the words “Beware of Dog.” In addition, a similar sign is required to be posted on the pen or kennel of such dog.
(e) Insurance. All owners, keepers or harborers of vicious dogs must provide proof to the city clerk of public liability insurance in a single incident amount of fifty thousand dollars to bodily injury to or death of any person or persons or property owned by any persons which may result from the ownership, keeping or maintenance of such animal. Such insurance policy shall provide that no cancellation of the policy will be made unless ten days written notice is first given to the city. (Ord. No. 1109, (part).)
