Responsible Pet Ownership

As a pet owner you are responsible to ensure that your pet is well looked after.

In addition it is important that pet owners respect other people in the community. This can be achieved by ensuring your pet is adequately confined on your property, on a leash in public places, ensuring the pet does not bark or howl excessively and prevent aggressive behaviour.
