§ 93.11 KENNELS.
   (A)   Definition. For the purposes of this section, the following definition shall apply unless the context clearly indicates or requires a different meaning.
      (1)   The keeping of 4 or more dogs on the same premises, whether owned by the same person or not and for whatever purpose kept, shall constitute a “kennel”; except that a fresh litter of pups may be kept for a period of 3 months before that keeping shall be deemed to be a “kennel.”
      (2)   The term “keeping” shall not apply to the number of dogs on the premises awaiting on-site service, such as grooming or training or awaiting pick up from on-site service, provided it is not between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m.
   (B)   Kennel as a nuisance. Because the keeping of 4 or more dogs on the same premises is subject to great abuse, causing discomfort to persons in the area by way of smell, noise, hazard, and general aesthetic depreciation, the keeping of 4 or more dogs on the premises is hereby declared to be a nuisance and no person shall keep or maintain a kennel within the city.
