The City of North Augusta requires dogs to be under their owner's control at all times. This means they must be on a leash or confined to their owner's property. Dogs that run loose are subject to impoundment.

Leash laws exist to protect yourself, your dog, and others. Loose dogs can be taken by strangers, hit by cars, or worse. Multiple loose dogs, though they may be friendly individually, may become aggressive in packs. It's dangerous for your dog, you, and other people if you let your dog leave your property without being attached to you by a leash.
