The Shire of Dardanup is considering plans for a Fenced Dog Exercise Area in Eaton.
Council wants to hear the views of dog owners AND non-dog owners before making a decision on future potential for the idea.
Submissions close Friday, March 15, 2019.
A Fenced Dog Exercise Area is a designated public area that’s been set aside for dog guardians to legally exercise, play and socialise with their dogs off-leash in a secure environment. These types of facilities can vary from a basic fenced area with a water source to more of a playground for dogs and owners with agility equipment, seating, shade and landscaping.
The Shire of Dardanup needs your help on topics like…
- Are you supportive of a Fenced Dog Exercise Area for Eaton?
- Where should it go?
- How much should be spent on it?
- What facilities should it have?
The Shire of Dardanup has almost 2,500 registered dogs plus a range of existing on and off-leash options for exercising them. Council believes provision of a facility like this – enabling dog owners to exercise and socialise their pets in a controlled environment – could assist with reducing dog-related issues in the community such as excessive barking and aggression.
This is a valuable opportunity to have your say on the development of future recreation facilities and how you would like to see Council funds spent. And it will take less than five minutes of your time.
