Dog owners are responsible for ensuring their dog is registered and is not allowed to wander at large in public places. Rangers can seize dogs or issue infringements for those dogs found in public places and not under effective control. The dog may be placed in the Shire Pound and the owner would then have to pay poundage charges to have the dog released.

Rangers patrol beaches, towns, reserves and foreshores to encourage a safe environment for the community and its animals. Rangers are authorised to investigate and enforce breaches of the Dog Act 1976.

Useful information for dog owners to consider:

  • Your dog is required to be registered with the Local Council.
  • The dog must wear a collar with the owner’s name and address on it, as well as the registration tag.
  • If a previous owner does not advise of a change of ownership, he/she continues to be responsible for any offense.
  • No more than two (2) dogs over the age of three months and the young of those dogs under that age are permitted to be kept on any premises.
  • A brochure entitled Licence Look After Me for dog owners and interested people.
  • Dog licences are renewable on 1st of November each year and may be renewed for either 1 year or 3 year periods.

Common Complaints

Thu, 07 Jul 2011 16:25:29 WST by , 13568 views


A dog attack can take many forms, from a person or animal being chased and growled at, to a physical contact resulting in the death of an animal or serious injury to a person. All attacks should be reported to Ranger Services, regardless of the severity of the attack. All complaints are confidential. A dog that has shown the propensity to attack may be declared as a Dangerous Dog and be subject to additional control requirements e.g. muzzled in public.


Neighbours are encouraged to speak to dog owners if they are concerned about excessive barking. If the barking continues to be unreasonable after speaking to the owners residents are encouraged to contact ranger services. A ranger will then liaise with the dog owner and provide suggestions on how the barking may be reduced. Rangers are currently limited in their powers in relation to dog barking and do not have the authority to remove a dog from it's residence.

Dog Excreta

Dog owners are responsible for picking up after their dogs, they are encouraged to provide their own poo bags and not be reliant on those in parks, as they are often stolen/misused. Failure to pick up after your dog in public may result in a $100 fine.

Dog Stray

Rangers receive thousands of calls about stray dogs each year, resulting in a number of impoundments a year. This could easily be avoided if all fences and gates were secure, and all dogs wearing ID.

Dog Wander

Dogs must be held by a leash in all public places, unless in an approved Dog Exercise Area as listed below.
