Dog owners beware. Chicago is going to be cracking down on owners who fail to register their dogs with the city. And that may include stings by the city's Animal Care and Control and the City Clerk's Office at dog-friendly spots in the city. "One of the biggest complaints that we get from people is when they take their dog who is licensed to a beach or dog park and they see other dogs running around that are not licensed," said City Clerk Susana Mendoza at City Hall. "So those are perfect opportunities for us to educate the public and continue to educate them but more importantly also...

Who is Chicago's top dog? No, the answer is not Mayor Emanuel. At least not in this case. The City Clerk's office is presenting a "Dog of Distinction" contest, and residents can vote for one of five canine finalists through May 20 at chicityclerk.com . The finalists were selected at random among all dogs registered in the city. But only one dog will get the title. The winning dog and its owner will get a custom-designed dog tag valued at $2,000, a TV ad appearance, a weekend stay at the Palmer House Hilton, a photo shoot at Urban Out Sitters and a feature in Chicagoland Tails...

Listen, I like Ozzie Guillen. I really do. We were two of the only people in Chicago with back-to-back Z's in our first name. But there comes a time in a dog's life when he must take a stand. Ozzie has crossed a line. And behalf of all dogs in this fine world, I've got to put him - and all dog owners, for that matter--in his place. Please, for the love of all that is sacred, don't kiss your dog with an open mouth like the Ozman did on the cover of ESPN The Magazine. First of all, it looks downright revolting.

A horrific dog attack that left a jogger critically injured this week has brought to light a familiar debate over laws governing animals and their owners. Joseph Finley, 62, was mauled by two pit bulls Monday while he was running on a path in Rainbow Beach Park. A bystander came to beat the dogs off with a bat, and police fatally shot the animals when officers arrived to the scene. Finley remained in critical condition Wednesday night at Stroger Hospital. The incident has reignited conflict between Chicago dog owners who take care of their pets and residents who...

Chicago's municipal code defines so-called dangerous dogs, mandates restrictions on them and imposes penalties on irresponsible dog owners. Here's a breakdown. Leash ordinance Letter of the law: It's illegal for animals to be outside their owners' property lines without a leash - unless the animal is a dog at a dog park. Violations: If no one is severely injured or killed and there is no property damage, the fine is $300. If someone is severely injured or killed, owners face fines of $1,000-$10,000 and the possibility of jail time and community service.

You've heard of BYOB. What about BYOD? Outdoor dining and drinking season is in full force, and more than 60 restaurants have declared their outdoor seating areas dog-friendly with the City of Chicago. The city previously required a separate license for a restaurant to declare its outdoor seating area dog-friendly, but that now is folded into the retail food license. “Restaurants may establish a dog-friendly area in their outdoor space by simply providing a statement in their business activity description that they wish to establish such an area,” said Jennifer Lipford, director of...

A Rogers Park woman is trying to reunite the lost pooch she found playing in traffic on Lake Shore Drive late last week with its owners. Jillian Conley was driving with her boyfriend on Thursday evening when they spotted the black and white Shih-Tzu/poodle mix darting across traffic. Conley says they pulled over hoping to save the pup from getting run over. "As I was stopping, my boyfriend jumped out of the car," Conley said. "Another woman stopped and threw my boyfriend a leash.
