We love our furry friends and like to talk about how pet friendly we are in Canyon Creek. On any morning or evening you are sure to spot many owners walking their pets throughout the neighborhood. That being said, there are a few things pet owners need to know.
Trailhead Park is owned by the City of Austin. City ordnance requires all dogs be on leash no longer than 6ft. while on city owned property. This includes the public sidewalks and streets within the community.
Greenbelt and trail areas owned by the HOA are designated as off-leash areas. Since you will likely encounter other dogs and people in these areas, make sure your dog is friendly and well-behaved before allowing them off leash.
Coyotes and Wild Animals
We share our neighborhood with many wild animals that can be dangerous to our furry friends. Pets roaming loose at night can fall prey to coyotes. Small and medium sized dogs can be injured if they get into fights with raccoons or possums. Rattlesnakes are sometimes found within the neighborhood as well.
Be considerate of your neighbors when out with your dog and pick up your pet's waste. The Association provides bags and receptacles for pet waste at a number of stations along Boulder Lane.
Nuisance barking is a violation of both the community rules as well city ordnance. If you have a problem with a neighbor's dog barking excessively, you can usually resolve the matter directly with your neighbor by bringing the issue to their attention as they may not be aware of the behavior if they are away from the house while it is happening. If speaking politely to your neighbor about the issue does not result in a satisfactory resolution of the problem, you may call 311 to file a police report or notify the HOA manager at Manager@canyoncreek.net
