Dogs In Public Etiquette
Last but not least, please help preserve a pleasant experience for all park users by keeping the following in mind when you go to an Off-Leash Dog Exercise Park:
- Your dog should be under supervision and effective control at all times to prevent conflict with other dogs and people
- Clean up after your dog. Waste bags are usually available at park entrances, but bringing extras is always a good idea.
- Carry a lead with you at all times
- Remember that Dogs must be on a lead within at least five metres of children’s playgrounds (this varies across different councils)
- Dogs must be on a lead within five metres of the edge of playing fields being used for organised sporting or other permitted activities.
