Responsibilities of Dog Owners

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

Owners should also check any signage before taking their dogs on to playing fields as dogs may be prohibited. If dogs 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 dedicated off-leash areas at:

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