Palma police are to launch a campaign to check that bylaws in respect of the control of dogs are being adhered to. The community police and the Green Patrol will be on the beat in all parts of the city, starting with the coastal district from Portitxol to Arenal. The controls will take place in the mornings, at midday and in the evenings, and the Son Reus centre has provided the police with chip readers in order to check that dogs have been chipped.
Officers will be making sure that documentation is in order, that dogs are on leads - except in areas where they are allowed to be let loose - that owners are picking up excrement and that potentially dangerous dogs have the required insurance and are muzzled.
Infringements can result in fines from 60 euros up to 3,000 euros. A light sanction, for example, is for a dog not being on a lead in areas where it should be or for not picking up excrement. However, repeat infringements increase the level of fine. Not having documentation or insurance for potentially dangerous dogs are considered to be examples of very serious infringements.
