Over the last week there have been concerns raised about unleashed dogs on the trails, on roads and on others properties.  While we know most of our companion dogs are just playful and happy, this may not be the case with all dogs.  Not everyone is comfortable around dogs, and not every dog is friendly with other dogs/animals.  With a lot of construction going on in the Acres it could also be a safety issue for the dog.

We would like to remind you there is a leash law in the Town of Jay, but more importantly be considerate to your neighbors and fellow Acres residents and keep your companion leashed.
