Dog Safety 

If your dog is missing ACT QUICKLY! If a dog is found in a public or private place without the consent of the occupier and nobody is exercising effective control over the dog, it is considered to be 'wandering at large' (an offence under the Dog and Cat Management Act 1995). To prevent this from occurring, always have your dog on a cord or leash (no longer than two metres), or if you are in an off-lead park make sure you stay near enough to your dog to give commands that it will hear and obey.

Dog owners in rural areas must take extra care to ensure that their dog/s are contained. Wandering dogs in rural areas cause distress and damage to stock, heavy penalties apply for dogs found wandering.
