Animals  add meaning to our lives and are important members of the family — but don't forget Fairfax County's leash law, which requires dogs to be restrained at all times in public areas unless they’re in a designated off-leash area. Letting your pet run loose in Carlyn Square is illegal and endangers health and safety — ours and the animal’s. Prevent legal action by cleaning up after it. When walking your pet, don’t let it mess on homeowners' and common property or on the adjacent school yard.

The Association is not liable for injury to people or property caused by unleashed dogs.
