Dogs need a license to legally travel by car or in open space. Learn more about what that license requirement is, and what it means to be “allowed” to travel and see the city of Baltimore.
How many dogs can a dog be in?
In Maryland, a dog must be at least 8 weeks old to legally participate in a walk. Puppies, children, and small animals are not acceptable travel companions. Dogs must be on a leash not exceeding 4 feet in length and must not be barking.
Is there a minimum age to hold a dog during a walk?
According to Maryland law, all dogs are required:
To be housebroken and up-to-date on shots.
To be muzzled when traveling.
Dogs that are already in possession of a rabies inoculation will not be required to have the rabies vaccine.
Do owners need to pay for dog licenses?
In most cases, owners will be provided with a permit at the time of application by the city, and will have a chance to renew a permit in their home every 10 years.
May I walk a dog that is unvaccinated or is not properly micro-chipped?
No. Unless the dog is in a quarantine area or if the dog is being allowed around children, it is not necessary to offer it a vaccine. For more information, see our list of dog vaccinations and micro-chipping.
What will happen if my dog gets sick?
The only way to know if your dog has been vaccinated and that any vaccinations haven’t been made is to look your dog up on the Baltimore City Animal Health Department’s web site online, so that you have the information you need to figure out what to do.
