indoor crate training

Indoor crate training is a pet-friendly alternative to unattended tethering 


In preparation for enforcement of Mesquite’s “no unattended tethering” ordinance, residents are encouraged to consider indoor crate training as an alternative to tethering. When done properly, indoor crate training can help a dog feel safe, happy and secure in his crate. View crate training tips and resources.
 
The new ordinance takes effect July 1 and prohibits tethering of dogs unless the owner is physically present within the outdoor area where the dog is tethered and the dog is in view of the owner at all times. View the complete ordinance and additional information at www.cityofmesquite.com/BePetFriendly
