Responsibilities of Dog Owners

Source: Lithgow City Council
Archived 16 Jun 2018 - Posted: 17 Apr 2018
Owning a dog is both a great pleasure and great responsibility. Lithgow Council is keen to educate pet owners on their responsibilities particularly when they visit public places.

When taking their dogs out in public, dog owners need to ensure their pets are properly restrained and all dog litter is picked up and properly disposed of. 

Lithgow Mayor Stephen Lesslie said, “Responsible dog owners need to ensure their dogs are restrained in public places including parks and public footpaths.  They are also responsible for cleaning up after their dog.”

Owners should also check any signage before taking their dogs onto playing fields as they may be prohibited.  If they are permitted, they still must be restrained and owners must clean up after them. 

Dogs are required to be restrained in all public places with the exception of designated fenced areas at:

  • Endeavour Park, Lithgow
  • Montague Street , Lithgow
  • Lake Wallace, Wallerawang
  • Williwa Street, Portland

Mayor Lesslie concluded, “Dog owners should be aware of their responsibilities and that they can be fined if they don’t comply.  I urge them to take these responsibilities seriously so the entire community and visitors can enjoy our public places.”
