How many dogs am I allowed on my property?

In the County, you can have up to four (4) dogs over six (6) months old on your property unless:  

  • You have a valid Kennel Development Permit. 
  • You have a valid Veterinary Clinic Development Permit. 
  • You have a valid Dog Training or Animal Grooming Facility Development Permit. 
  • The County has given temporary approval for a dog show. 

It's important to note that keeping or sheltering any dog not in compliance with the Dog Control Bylaw is considered a violation, and the person responsible is guilty of an offence. 

If you have questions about the Development Permit process, you may contact Planning and Development via email or 780-352-3321. You can also find the Development Permit Application here.
