Effective Control of Dogs

Roaming or wandering dogs have been responsible for numerous attacks, nuisances and traffic accidents. You must ensure:

  • the dog is in a prescribed enclosure; or
  • the dog is held by a leash not longer than two metres in length by the keeper, who is physically able to control the dog and is not holding more than two dogs at the one time; or
  • the dog is tethered to a fixed object and under the continuous supervision of the keeper, who is physically able to control the dog; or
  • the dog is controlled or supervised by a person who is at least 16 years of age.
