Dog Control

All dogs over the age of three months must be registered by someone over the age of 18. It is an offence not to register your dog and you could be issued with a significant, on-the-spot fine for failing to do so. They must also be held on a leash when in public areas except at designated off-lead dog exercise areas, however restrictions apply (see website).

We encourage all dog owners to sterilise their pets to prevent them contributing to the increasing population of unwanted dogs and puppies.

All new dogs being registered for the first time must be microchipped, including dangerous dogs. All other dogs must be microchipped. If your dog does not already have a microchip, consider getting one today!
