Dogs on Lead

With a focus on ensuring that public places are able to be enjoyed by all members of the community, Council reminds dog owners that it is an offence under the Dog Control Act 2000 to have your dog off lead when not in a designated off lead area.

Dogs must be held on a lead no more than two metres long by a person able to control the dog, with the person in charge of the dog responsible for removing and disposing of any faeces left by their dog in a public place.
