What is Pennsylvania’s Dog Law?

Pennsylvania’s Dog Law states that all dogs over 3 months of age must be licensed by January 1 of each year. All dogs must be under control. This means that when your dog is not on your property, it must be under the direct control of you or a handler. The best way to control a dog is with a leash. Remember, dogs are personal property. You are responsible for any damage caused by your dog.
