When not on their own property, a dog's owner or keeper must not allow their dog to roam on another person's land or on a public highway, including sidewalks, if it is not under his control. Violating the state roaming law is an infraction punishable by a fine of $92.

In addition, the Connecticut Environmental Protection Department requires that owners keep their dogs leashed in state parks.
