Dog Information

Dogs in Public Places

Council has amended the areas within the District where dogs can be exercised on and off leash.  The provisions are as follows:

Dogs may be exercised off leash, but must remain under ‘effective control’:

  • On Old School Oval - when there is no organised sporting or community events taking place.
  • On Gall Park Oval – outside school hours and when there is no organised sporting or community events taking place.
  • Between Thredgolds Beach access point and Pinks Beach access point before 9am and after 8pm during Daylight Saving.
  • Between Thredgolds Beach access point and Pinks Beach access point at all times when Daylight Savings is not in force.
  • The beach and foreshore south of Pinks Beach access point at all times
  • The beach and foreshore north of the Jetty at all times
  • Maria Creek Reserve (north of Maria Creek) at all times.

 

Effective control requires the dog owner to:

  • Carry a chain or leash
  • Keep the dog in sight
  • Not allow the dog to rush at or attack another person or animal
  • Have effective voice control of the dog and is able to place the dog on the leash immediately if necessary.

 

Dogs must remain on leash:

  • On the beach and foreshore reserve between the Jetty and Thredgolds beach entrance at all times.
  • Old School Oval and Gall Park oval when there is organised sporting or community events taking place.
  • Between Thredgolds Beach access point and Pinks Beach access point between 9am and 8pm during Daylight Saving.
  • On all other reserves, footpaths, parks and public places in the Council area.

 

Other considerations:

  • All dog owners are reminded to clean up after your dog.
  • Dog owners are reminded that as from 1 July 2018, all dogs must be microchipped.
