Council wishes dog owners a great outdoor Christmas

Manukau City Council wants all dog owners to have a very merry Christmas and Happy New Year by remembering to follow a few helpful tips.

“It has been a stressful year for dog owners where the actions of the irresponsible few have put everyone under the spotlight,” says Kevin Jackson, Manager Environmental Health & Compliance.

He wants all dog owners to enjoy a summer outdoors with their dogs.

“Its important for the safety and comfort of other people using public spaces that you:
- keep your dog under control at all times
- know where you can take your dog
- know when your dog must be on a leash
- remember to carry a leash with you in an off leash area
- carry something to clean up after your dog goes to the toilet

“Council’s contractor DSS Ltd – Animal Management will be enforcing access and leash laws, and is conducting blitzes in popular beaches, parks and reserves to ensure the actions of the few irresponsible dog owners do not affect responsible dog owners and other members of the public enjoying the outdoors”, says Mr Jackson.

The key message for dog owners this summer is:

KEEP YOUR DOG UNDER CONTROL AT ALL TIMES!

For more information, including where dog owners can take their dog and where dogs must be on a leash, visit Council’s website at www.manukau.govt.nz or call Council’s 24hr call centre on Ph 262 5104.

Sam Uffindell’s defenders keep reminding us that he was only 16 at the time of the King’s College incident, and haven’t we all done things in our teens that, as adults, we look back on with shame and embarrassment? True. Let's be honest. Haven’t we all at one time or another, joined a gang and beaten a smaller, younger kid black and blue with wooden clubs? In that respect, Uffindell’s defenders on the streets of Tauranga risk sounding a bit like the psychiatrist Kargol played by Graham Chapman on Monty Python. Some of the media commentary has also noted how the Uffindell saga has taken the shine off National’s good poll results and distracted us all from the unveiling of an important welfare policy at the recent National Patty conference. OK… So let's put the spotlight back on that welfare policy...
