New dog laws due to be­gin

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

The City of South Perth Dogs Lo­cal Law 2016 will come into ef­fect on Jan­uary 27. The pur­pose of the lo­cal law is to make rules re­gard­ing the con­fine­ment and fenc­ing of dogs, set the max­i­mum num­ber of dogs that can be kept on a prop­erty with­out ap­proval, and a re­quire­ment to re­move dog exc­reta.

The ef­fect is that peo­ple must not keep more than two dogs over the age of three months un­less pro­vided for by the Lo­cal Law, the Dog Act 1976; or its as­so­ci­ated reg­u­la­tions.

This will en­sure the ex­ten­sion of con­trols over dogs which ex­ist un­der the Dog Act 1976 and Reg­u­la­tions.
