Dog Parks and Leash-Free Areas

Leash free areas

Dubbo Regional Council provides several areas in the Local Government Area where owners can take their dogs for a run off the leash; including three fenced areas with agility equipment.

Whilst dogs are permitted off the leash in these areas, owners are still legally liable for any damage or attacks that their dog may commit. There are rules governing the use of these facilities to ensure these areas remain safe and friendly for all users.

Take a look at our Leash-free brochure (PDF 367KB), and view the rules and locations below.

RULES

The following rules must be abided by in leash-free areas:

  • No declared dangerous or menacing dogs or restricted breeds;
  • No greyhounds;
  • Only two dogs to be off the leash at any one time;
  • Be considerate and share the use of the facility;
  • Owners must clean up after their dogs;
  • Vaccinations must be current; and
  • Dogs must always be under the effective control of a competent person who is over 16 years of age.
