How Many Dogs and Cats Can You Own in Saskatchewan, Canada


The maximum number of dogs and cats you can keep at your residence in the province of Saskatchewan depends on your municipality's bylaws. In this article, we will look at the maximum number of pets allowed per household in some Saskatchewan municipalities.

The City of Saskatoon's Animal Control Bylaw does not place a limit on the number of cats or dogs a resident can keep in his or her house. However, the City's bylaw does state that the maximum number of dogs allowed in an off-leash area within the City is four dogs per owner.

Pet owners in Saskatoon must have their cats and dogs licensed and have them wear a collar that displays the license tag. Dogs and cats are not permitted to be at large in the city. Owners are required to always have their dog on a leash in any place that is not designated as an off-leash area. Furthermore, Saskatoon pet owners must not allow their dogs to become a nuisance.

In Saskatoon, a dog is deemed to constitute a nuisance if it:
  • Attacks a person or another animal
  • Is found chasing or threatening a person or another animal
  • Is found biting, barking at, or chasing livestock, bicycles or motor vehicles
  • Is barking or howling excessively
  • Is found causing damage to property
  • Is found far away from its owner

If you are traveling with your dog or cat in a vehicle, you must properly restrain your pet in a manner that will prevent it from falling from the vehicle or causing hazards to the safe operation of other vehicles. These are just some of the laws that pertain to keeping pets in Saskatoon.


The City of Regina's bylaw does not regulate the number of dogs and cats a resident can keep, meaning you can have as many dogs and cats as you can properly care for if you live in the City of Regina.
