Dangerous Dog Services
By their very nature, dogs classified as “dangerous” or “potentially dangerous” pose a direct threat to the people and other animals that live in the same community or may otherwise come into contact with them. The intent of the Ordinance is to govern and control dangerous and potentially dangerous dogs located within the county. The Ordinance uses the same framework as M.S. §§ 347.50 through 347.565, as they may be amended from time to time, which govern dangerous dogs.
The Ordinance does not regulate, govern or control dogs not considered dangerous or potentially dangerous, or otherwise impact the regulation and control of other animals, whether wild or domestic.
