QUESTIONS ABOUT DOGS

There are a lot of calls about dogs, so here are some important notes to remember.

1. All dogs need to be licensed.

There is no Town Ordinance, but there are Marathon County ordinances and State Statutes that say the following.

2. No dogs may run at large (must be on owner’s property).

3. Owners are liable for any damage that their dogs cause.

4. Frequent or habitual howling, barking or yelping is not allowed.

We all know that dogs sometimes get out, but you need to do everything in your power to recover them immediately and ensure that it does not happen again. All complaints will be handled by the Marathon County Sheriff. The Town Board is also available to help recover any missing dogs.
