Walking dogs off leash

Dog poo

If you own a dog, you must collect and remove all droppings that they leave in a public place such as a park or on a footpath.

Carry a plastic bag or other container with you and scoop up the poo immediately before you move on.

Dog poo is a form of litter which:

  • is offensive to others walking and enjoying our public, open spaces
  • can cause health issues, such as spreading disease and infections to other dogs
  • It is an offence to not clean up after your dog, and fines may apply.

If you see someone that fails to clean up after their dog, you can report it to Council: Contact Us
