As a home rule municipality, the Town of Castle Rock has its own set of laws and codes. Following two open houses, written public feedback and three Town Council public hearings, Council officially approved staff's recommended changes to the Town Code related to animals.
No dogs are restricted based on their appearance or breed. Restrictions are now based on dog behavior, and are identified in a two-tiered system defining potentially dangerous dogs, and dangerous dogs. A dog need not bite to be determined as potentially dangerous. A potentially dangerous dog may be allowed to remain in the Town under court ordered restrictions. A dog determined to be a dangerous dog is not allowed in the Town.
