The City's Rangers are responsible for a whole range of matters including litter, animals, bush fires, parking, illegal camping and off-road vehicles.

Keep our kids safe around dogs

With an estimated 16,000 dogs in Cockburn, it's essential that our children know how to behave, look after and keep safe around dogs. If you would like one of the City's Rangers to talk to your class about interacting and keeping safe around dogs, please contact us.

Book in a Ranger presentation today

Our one-hour presentations are fun, interactive, and we even come with our highly-trained pet pooch!
It includes:

  • The body language of dogs and recognising the signs

  • How to approach a dog safely

  • What to do if a dog attacks

  • How to be a good dog owner

  • Pat and play with our very own pet pooch.

Keep our kids safe around cars

Children's cognitive skills are not fully developed and may mean they cannot properly manage complicated traffic conditions that occur when people don't do the right thing. Children are also small and hard to see, so please get parents to slow down around schools, park in the right spaces and walk or ride wherever possible!
