Do's, doo-doo's and don't do's...

From mis­cel­la­neous drop­pings to dodg­ing traf­fic, a wan­der­ing dog can cre­ate a nui­sance for the lo­cal com­mu­nity, so your Coun­cil is en­cour­ag­ing dog own­ers to fa­mil­iarise them­selves with their obli­ga­tions and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties.

Iom a dog owner! What are my obli­ga­tions and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties?

Dogs must be kept un­der con­trol at all times

Your dog must be kept on a leash when out­side your prop­erty, and it must not be able to leave your prop­erty of its own free will.


When out walk­ing your dog(s), en­sure you take am­ple plas­tic bags with you to pick up their drop­pings and dis­pose of them in a bin.

Fail­ure to meet your obli­ga­tions and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties as a dog owner may re­sult in an in­fringe­ment fee, depend­ing on the of­fence.

Coun­cil is happy to an­swer any ques­tions you may have re­gard­ing An­i­mal Con­trol. You can get in touch with the Coun­cil team by email­ing to info@tararu­ or phon­ing 06 374 4080 or 06 376 0110.
