Dog faeces must be removed immediately and hygienically disposed of. Doggie Doo bags are available free of charge from all Council offices and in dispensers around the district.
Your dog must respond to voice commands, hand signals or other effective means of control when off the leash.
Dogs are prohibited on all Council sports fields and complexes, and within 10 metres of playground equipment and picnic tables. Dogs are also prohibited in the specific areas indicated on the Dog Exercise Areas map.
Please note that a separate bylaw governs the Abel Tasman Foreshore Scenic Reserve, and dogs are prohibited - with a very few exceptions.
For the areas that are prohibited "in Summer", we mean from 1 December to 1 March.
This prohibition of dogs from specified areas does not apply to game hunting dogs engaged in legitimate hunting activities during the recognised hunting season.
