I was wondering if there is a law that states that a dog owner must pick up it's dog's waste when in a public place. (Obviously if the dog does it on their own property it is up to the owner when and if they pick it up.) However, when an owner is walking his/her dog are they required by law to pick the waste up off the sidewalk, other's property, grass on boulevards, or parks etc....? Thank you for your time.
