How to be a responsible dog owner in off-leash areas

  • Always have effective control of your dog so you can recall with voice or hand commands.

  • Maintain constant sight and monitor your dog’s behaviour and restrain, if necessary.

  • Leash your dog within 20 metres of an area being used for organised sport including training, playgrounds, barbeques, picnic areas and on-leash signed areas.

  • Clean up after your dog immediately: scoop the poop and put in a bin (leaving a waste bag on the ground is a no-no)

  • Ensure your dog doesn’t damage sportsground turf by digging.
