The Association defines a household pet as an animal that is traditionally kept in the home for pleasure rather than for commercial purposes. Dogs and cats are the most traditional family pets. Common household pets do not include any animal that is considered “wildlife, farm animal or livestock”. If this definition conflicts with any applicable State or local law or regulation defining the pets that may be owned or kept in dwelling accommodations, the State or local law or regulation shall apply. This definition shall not include animals that are used to assist persons with disabilities.
Owning a pet at Muirfield Village
Pet owners must abide by the ordinances of the City of Dublin concerning pet ownership which state: "All dogs must be on a leash unless the animal is capable of responding immediately to the minimum obedience commands of 'Come', 'Sit', or 'Stay' "
No person shall permit an animal to enter public or private property unless the animal is securely controlled by a leash not to extend six feet in length
No more than 2 dogs and/or 2 cats may be maintained on any lot
Should the cat or dog have a litter, the litter may reside on the property up to 3 months
No animals, birds, insects, livestock or poultry may be raised, bred or kept on the Property except household pets. Animals maintained, kept or bred for sale or other commercial purposes are prohibited
Owners are responsible for pets they own and any pets visiting the property
Pets shall be under the control of their owner at all times and cannot cause a fouling or noise nuisance
When off of the Owner’s lot, pets must be under the owner’s control by a hand-held leash or immediate vocal command
Animal welfare organizations can advise on how to avoid common noise disturbances from pets. They may be of assistance for behavior advice and information on local training classes
When walking dogs (or other pets), it is the walker’s responsibility to immediately clean up pet waste. Owners must carry some visible means for cleaning feces. Pet feces must be disposed of properly. For convenience, the Association has installed waste receptacles along the pathways
When cats are allowed free access outside, residents must take steps to ensure that they do not cause a nuisance to neighbors
Pet owners must repair any damage caused to communal property by their pets
Residents observing someone not immediately cleaning up after their pets or not disposing of waste appropriately should contact the Dublin Police Department at the non-emergency number 614-889-1112
Report problems with vicious or menacing dogs and constantly-barking dogs to the Dublin Police Department at 614-889-1112 or the Animal Control in your county
