Fairfax County Ordinance requires that all dogs be restrained on a leash. It is the responsibility of the person who has control of the pet to remove the fecal matter of the defecating pet. It does not matter if it is on common property of the Home Owner’s Association or the private property of another resident. All pets (dogs and cats) must have a current vaccination and license status in Fairfax County.
Fairfax County Ordinance also requires pet waste to be picked up and properly disposed of. Violators can be fined by the county as well as the HOA. Note: Review Section 6 of the Chapter By-laws and covenants of Woodstream Home Owner’s Association.
