Plans to prevent dog attacks by introducing control orders across an area of Sussex have been put out to consultation.
Owners in Rother could face a £1,000 fine if their animals attack other dogs, are let off the lead in public places, or are allowed to foul streets.
People would also be unable to walk more than three dogs at the same time.
A Rother District Council spokesman said: "It's only possible to control a dog when it is on a lead."
The proposals follow consultation with parish and town councils within the district.
Critics have dubbed them "asbos for dogs", with some areas refusing to take part in the ban if it is brought in.
Jennifer Als, from Peasmarsh Parish Council, said the order would be extremely difficult to implement.
"We have a parish where we have a vast number of footpaths which are crossing quite a lot of public land," she said.
Leader of Rother District Council, Graham Gubby, said the orders would not be imposed on parishes who did not want them.
But Bexhill resident Jackie Hamilton, who was attacked by two large Doberman dogs last year, said her injured leg was still badly scarred and something had to be done to prevent it from happening again.
"You can't stitch dog wounds so I had to be cleaned up and patched up [by the hospital], and was off work for just under a week," she recalled.
