Wisconsin Leash Law


The state of Wisconsin holds dog owners and keepers liable for all damages caused by dogs that run at large.

Dogs may not run at large or be untagged; dogs found to be running at large or untagged will be impounded. Owners of such dogs will be fined up to $100 for the first offense, and up to $200 for subsequent offenses.

A dog is considered to be running at large if it is off the premises of its owner and not under the control of the owner or some other person. A dog that is actively engaged in a legal hunting activity, including training, is not considered to be running at large if the dog is monitored or supervised by a person and the dog is on land that is open to hunting or on land on which the person has obtained permission to hunt or to train a dog. Dogs running at large or an untagged dog is subject to impoundment. An officer shall attempt to capture and restrain any dog running at large and any untagged dog.
