City of Dublin Pet Code

The office is again receiving complaints about a very small handful of pet owners who are either not removing their animal's waste from others' property and from along pathways and/or allowing their animals to roam at large.

All pet owners have a responsibility to clean up after their pet. Dublin has an ordinance against persons leaving dog waste on property other than their own. Residents should be aware that a fine of up to $100 can be levied by the City of Dublin for each offense.

The City of Dublin code states:


(2) No person being the owner or having charge of any animal on any public or private property other than the property of the owner or person having charge of such animal, shall fail to have in his possession a wood, plastic, or metal device or other container for the purpose of picking up and properly disposing of any fecal matter left by his/her animal. Failure of any such person to have in his possession such suitable device or container is prima-facie evidence of a violation of this section. No person shall fail to remove fecal matter left by his or her animal within a reasonable amount of time by properly placing such refuse into a waste receptacle.

§ 96.99 PENALTY.

(B) Whoever violates §§ 96.15, 96.17(B), 96.19, 96.20, 96.22 or 96.23 is guilty of a first degree misdemeanor.


Whenever, in this code or in any ordinance of the municipality, any act is prohibited or is made or declared to be unlawful or an offense or a misdemeanor, or whenever the doing of any act is required or the failure to do any act is declared to be unlawful, where no specific penalty is otherwise provided, whoever violates any such provision shall be punished by a fine not exceeding $100. A separate offense shall be deemed committed each day during or on which a violation continues or occurs.

Loose dogs can cause distress to persons on the pathways and roaming cats and dogs can cause damage to gardens and potentially to other residents and their pets. Residents should be aware that unaccompanied pets can be confiscated by animal control.

Residents may contact City of Dublin Code Enforcement at 614-410-4647 with questions or to report violations. Animal control can be contacted at 740-368-1915 (Delaware County) or 614-462-3400 (Franklin County)

Your neighbors and the Association thank those who are diligent in caring for and cleaning up after their animals!

Golf Courses are Private Property

We are fortunate enough to live in a community with two beautiful golf courses. The relaxing and calming views may tempt residents to enter the courses. However, the golf courses are private property. For reasons of privacy, concerns about theft and vandalism, avoiding liability and protection of land and possessions, our neighboring golf clubs are reminding all residents to respect their property boundaries. They invite you to appreciate the beauty of the courses without trespassing onto the land.

Muirfield Association offers 29 miles of beautiful, meandering paths to walk, run, jog or bike. To assist you in planning your route, the Association is pleased to offer Muirfield pathway maps online to download free. There are also large areas of green space near both of the pools which are open for resident activities.

Please remind your guests, your children and their friends that the golf courses are private and we must respect others' private property.
