Pawsitivity Patrol

Code Enforcement and Police Officers will be on the lookout for off-leash dogs. Don't get 'nipped', but rather be 'high-paw'd' and receive a special treat!

While out and about in Erie you may see the 'Pawsitivity Leash Patrol' educating dog owners on the importance of keeping their dogs on leash. The Pawsitivity Patrol will be handing out information and asking for your assistance in being good neighbors. Is your dog on a leash? if so, you might receive a 'High Paw' and a special thank you treat!

Through the summer months, the heat is on. More neighbors, kiddos, and dogs are using the trails, paths, and parks. Please take a moment to be extra good neighbors and dog owners.

  • Please keep dogs on a leash at all times, if not in the 'Boneyard Dog Park'
  • Please pick up after your dog
  • Please license your dog with the Town of Erie

Send us a photo of your dog in the community following the rules, with their leash on and you will be eligible for a chance to win the 'Bark Box' filled with homemade dog treats, toys, a $50 value in dog washes, and much more! Winners will be notified by email. Post photos to:

Thank you for doing your part to be a good neighbor and pet owner by abiding by the Town of Erie laws and regulations related to animals. For additional information, and to obtain a dog license application, please visit
