OREGON DOG BITE LAWS
Different cities and counties define "dog at large" differently. Within Bend, Madras, Redmond and Sisters Oregon a dog is "at-large" if it is not leashed, bridled or confined within a vehicle. Bend Code, Madras Ordinance, Redmond Municipal Code, Sisters Municipal Code.
In Deschutes County outside the city limits a dog is not deemed to be "at-large" so long as it is under the complete control of the dog owner or another capable person even though the dog is not leashed, bridled or otherwise confined. The City of Prineville has a similar regulation.
