The city might spend $100,000 on a consultant to map out future off-leash dog parks in Winnipeg.
The mayor's executive policy committee voted to fund the project.
This comes after a dog owner lobby group raised concerns new off -leash park guidelines don't go far enough.
St. Vital Councillor Brian Mayes voted against the plan, saying that money could be better used to improve current dog parks.
