Council wishes dog owners a great Christmas


Media Release

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.

...We've been gratified by how many countries want to join with us to work with cutting-edge technologies like in the cyber arena, hypersonics, you can go down a long list and it's great to hear that New Zealand is interested...
