Responsible pet ownership
For everyone’s safety and wellbeing, we enforce a range of regulations for dog and cat owners. These include registration, rules about barking dogs, and restrictions on dangerous dogs. Fines apply for breaching some regulations.
Pet ownership policies
Our Companion Animal Management Plan explains how we keep pets and people safe, and outlines your responsibilities as a pet owner. We will be reviewing the plan over the next two years with guidance from the Companion Animal Advisory Panel.
We also encourage responsible pet ownership by providing off-leash dog parks and services for lost and found animals.
