Pets in Public Places
- Created on Wednesday, 16 December 2015 17:14
There has recently been a number of sitings of dogs in the area off their leash and unaccompanied. We would like to remind residents of your responsibility as a dog owner.
When walking your dog it must be under the effective control of a competent person at all times when out in public. This means that it must be on a leash and under the control of someone capable of restraining it. A small child, for example, may not be able to control a large dog. Under these circumstances, an adult capable of restraining the dog, should walk the dog.
Fines apply for unrestrained dogs, for more information, please click on the link below:
It is also the responsibility of the owner to take all reasonable precautions to prevent your dog from escaping from the property on which it is being kept. Fines also apply for this.
If you see an unaccompanied dog roaming the area, please report this to the Council Ranger on (02) 4654 7777 immediately.
Thank you for your co-operation.
