Does the Town of Needham have a leash law?
Yes. The Town of Needham has a strickly enforced leash law as well as a pooper scooper law. There are many parks and wooded areas to walk your pet. Your dog must remain leashed while on the public property at all times. We are seeing a huge increase of dog bites in town. Many of them happen while the dog is running at large. Animal Control will issue a citation for unleashed dogs as well as not picking up after your dog.
