Dog Regulations
Please be careful bringing your dog to OSMP. Dogs must be leashed while on OSMP land. In some areas, dogs may be allowed off leash if they are always within sight of the guardian and can meet the standard of voice control at all times.

Other dog regulations, such as "dogs must be on a hand-held leash" and "dogs are prohibited," are in effect in other areas.. Please check these regulations before bringing any pet onto Open Space & Mountain Parks. Dogs observed harassing or menacing any person, wildlife or livestock may be destroyed by a city of Boulder Open Space & Mountain Parks ranger or other authorized person. Visitors are legally responsible for picking up and disposing of their pet's excrement. OSMP has a special page for dog owners with a map of dog regulation and management areas. The city's public dog parks are safe places to let your dog off the leash.

Why: Dogs must be controlled when visiting Open Space & Mountain Parks in order to limit negative impacts on the environment and other visitors. Dogs can scare or chase wildlife and just their scent can affect the behavior of wildlife. Control of dogs is also necessary to provide a good experience for all visitors. Some visitors fear dogs or have had their dogs attacked by other dogs. Controlling dogs also helps protect the dog and its owner. Dogs sniffing in prairie dog holes can pick up fleas carrying bubonic plague. Dogs can be stung by insects, sprayed by skunks, eaten by mountain lions, infected with rabies or distemper, injured or lost. Dog poop is very damaging to the environment. OSMP estimates that about 30 tons of dog poop are left behind on OSMP land every year. That's the equivalent weight of 15 Ford Explorers!
