Dog Ownership

Many people enjoy having a dog for companionship, security and having fun, but everyone who owns a dog must be aware of their responsibilities.

Being a responsible dog owner is about understanding your pet's needs and your responsibilities to the community.

Your dog's health, your children's safety, and your community wellbeing are largely dependent on you.

Dog Registration

You are required by law to register your dog. The following information sheet gives dog owners the necessary information to have their dog registered with the shire, click here to view the information sheet.
