Private Kennel License

The Medina City CodeĀ Section 343 regulates the keeping of animals as pets. The Code allows a maximum of three dogs to be kept on a parcel 8 acres or less in area and a maximum of four dogs to be kept on a parcel greater than 8 acres.

The Code allows anĀ Administrative Private Kennel License to be requested if a property owner requests a license for the following number of Adult Dogs:

(1) four dogs on a parcel 8 acres or less in area.

(2) five dogs on a parcel larger than 8 acres.

The Code allows for a City Council Review of a Private Kennel License request if a property owner requests a license for more than five dogs and lives on a parcel larger than 8 acres in size.
