New dog laws due to begin
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.
