The City of Colwood recognizes dogs are an important part of many families, and appreciate the efforts of all responsible dog owners in our community. To ensure the safe enjoyment of our parks and public spaces, we require pet owners to keep pets under control at all times, clean up after their pets, and observe pet regulations
