Responsible dog ownership

Before you purchase a dog ensure that you have carefully considered the responsibility of dog ownership:

  • Speak with your local veterinarian
  • Speak with other dog owners
  • Gather as much information as you can to aid you in your decision
  • Never buy a dog on impulse – dogs often live to around 12 years of age and some dogs much longer

Owners’ basic responsibilities

  • Dogs must be registered with the City and micro-chipped from the age of three months
  • Dogs must wear a collar displaying a current registration tag
  • It is recommended that a name tag with owner’s contact name and number is attached to the dog’s collar
  • Dogs must be on a leash in public areas and near play equipment
  • Dogs must be under control at all times
  • Pick up all dog waste when out with your dog
  • Your property must have adequate fencing to confine your dog

Registration and microchipping assist City Rangers to reunite lost dogs with their owners.
