Wauseon Makes Decision On Dogs

Wasuseon is mov­ing for­ward with plans to remove breed-specific lan­guage from the city dog ordi­nance.

On Mon­day night, a meet­ing was held in which it was decided that the change would make pit bulls and pit bull mixes no longer deemed vicious — prompt­ing reg­is­tra­tion and insur­ance require­ments — by virtue of breed alone.

The change in the law would bring Wauseon inline with state law, which did away with breed-specific leg­is­la­tion in 2012.

Accord­ing to the Cres­cent News, the deci­sion was made fol­low­ing a pre­sen­ta­tion by Tasha Grieser, a cer­ti­fied dog trainer with north­west Ohio’s Bet­ter Friends Dog Train­ing, which pro­vides dog train­ing ser­vices in Defi­ance, Henry, Williams and Ful­ton counties.
