Responsibly exercising your pet
A reminder to keep your dog under effective control at all times. This means your dog:
- Responds to commands and returns when called
- Remains in a reasonable distance from the owner at all times
- Does not act in a threatening or aggressive manner to other people or animals
- Does not cause damage to flora or fauna
- Does not enter a lake or water channel
It is also recommended you follow these guidelines to ensure all members of the community can enjoy out outdoor spaces together:
- Carry a lead at all times
- Watch your dog around children, to avoid accidental injuries
- Be courteous and understanding with other dog owners
Important: Dog owners have a legal responsibility to clean up after their pets. Please respect your local park and community. The City provides doggy waste bags in various parks to promote and encourage correct practice.
