Owning a dog is a both a great privilege and a major responsibility. Dogs bring love and companionship, but owning one requires planning, foresight, and taking important precautions to protect yourself, your loved ones, and people your dog may encounter.
Because of the potential risks that dogs can pose, Nashville—like most cities in the state—has a list of ordinances concerning pets and dogs, especially when they’re brought into public. Two primary aspects of those ordinances include:
Leashes – Dog owners who bring their pets into public spaces such as outdoor dining areas must keep dogs on non-retractable leashes no longer than six feet for the duration of their visits.
Confinement on private property – Dogs can run freely on private property without the use of leashes, but they must be confined to the specific property. Dog owners who allow their pets to roam onto other people’s property or nearby public spaces may be in violation of state or local laws.
Leash laws and specific laws concerning dogs can vary from city to city and county to county. If you’re unsure about laws regarding pets in your area of Middle Tennessee, it can help to have an experienced Nashville dog bite lawyer on your side.
Ponce Law knows how important pet-related ordinances are when it comes to protecting innocent people in Tennessee, and we pursue compensation for those who are injured by unrestrained dogs. Call today for a free consultation.

Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS
My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!
The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
Out of nowhere… Come a car and she hit us head-on. I thought for a moment that my wife was going to die, you know… But we’re all good! I just needed to find somebody that would have our back… I chose Michael because he’s going to be upfront with ya, he will definitely have your back!
