Lakewood Mayor Considers Sweeping Change To Dog Breed Ban

(Lakewood) - The pit bull ban could soon be coming to an end in Lakewood.  Mayor Mike Summers is proposing sweeping change to current legislation that would dramatically change the specific breeds allowed in the city.  

Mayor Summers has proposed conceding significant regulations including the elimination of the pit bull ban which was adopted in Lakewood in 2008.  Summers wants to maintain a few specific regulations regarding the breed including:

Mandatory spay or neuter of pit bulls or pit bull mixes

Mandatory $100,000 liability insurance covering dog attacks

Mandatory control of the dog in public as evidenced by a harness

Required training of both basic dog ownership and handling as well as practical education of pit bull breeds.  

Lakewood City Council will continue to consider Mayor Summers' proposals.
