Pittsburg Leash Law:

Pittsburg has a leash law which states that when your dog leaves your property it must be under your control. This means that you will be responsible if your dog is not on your property and it causes damage or injury. In addition to the town leash law there is a state law that requires that your dogs not be allowed to run wild in areas inhabited by wildlife and birds unless under your control.
