The Companion Animals Act ensures safety for all when it comes to domestic animals. The law is strict on dog attacks, restricted, dangerous and menacing dogs, and nuisance animals.
All owners are required to be responsible dog owners.
You may be issued with a penalty notice or initiate court action by Council or the police if your dogs are not controlled properly.
This includes excessive barking, and you may even be found responsible if your dog attacks or injures another person.
All owners are required to be responsible cat owners.
Cats can sometimes be noisy, damage property and even kill or injure wildlife. It's important that you are vigilant.
