If you see a dog wandering or running “at large” without its owner present during business hours, you can call council on 1300 023 411.

Rangers will attend to assist and reunite the dogs with their owners.

Dogs wandering on their own can be at risk of being hit by a vehicle or be involved in an incident.

What needs to be provided when making the call:

  • name & phone number of caller
  • breed/colour or general description of dog
  • location of dog
  • any other helpful details (which way the dog was heading down a street)

To lodge a complaint about a dog being walked off lead, you can complete an online request form or call 1300 023 411
