Though local governments often choose to create their own leash ordinances there are certain laws and regulations that apply to all of Connecticut. In our state, a 14-day quarantine is required when a dog bites or mauls a person. In addition, it is up the discretion of the local animal control agent or the Department of Agriculture to decide if the dog must be restrained or killed.
