Keeping More than Two Dogs

Current legislation allows for property owner’s to keep a maximum of two dogs. In some circumstances, residents may wish to keep more than the prescribed number; however, approval from the council is required.

The Dog Act 1976 allows residents to apply to keep up to six (6) dogs on their premises provided they have the consent from their neighbours and that the dogs are well behaved and do not create a nuisance.

A non refundable fee is charged at the time of lodging your application to cover the costs of processing your application.
