A spike in complaints about the amount of dog poop littering our public open places has prompted the Shire of Dardanup to issue a reminder of where its designated dog exercise areas are located.
In addition, new signs are being produced and will soon be installed at various locations reminding people to clean up after their dogs and that penalties apply.
The Shire is also considering installation of additional poop bag dispensers at some locations.
In the meantime, Under Council’s Dog Local Law 2014, dogs can ONLY be exercised off leash at the following locations.
But first, please note that dogs MUST be on leash outside of designated dog exercise areas. Penalties may apply.
