Dogs are permitted on-lead in most public places, unless otherwise sign posted.
The City has a number of off-lead dog exercise areas (see the map below). If you are using an off-lead dog exercise area, make sure your dog is under control at all times to prevent conflict with other dogs or people. It is the owner's responsibility to ensure the dog collar is worn and a lead is available.

In the interest of community safety, we will be removing the dog agility equipment, fountains, park benches and fencing from the Baler Court dog park from 20 March 2020. These items will be replaced with non-electric conducting equipment, however a timeline has not yet been set.
The City is acting on advice provided by electrical engineers after residents reported feeling an electrical charge when visiting the park.
Check back for updates.
If your dog excretes on a street or a public place, you must remove and appropriately dispose of it. The City of Cockburn has installed waste bins, dog pooch dispensers at many parks locations to assist pet owners with appropriate disposal.
If your local park does not have this facility or if your park has run out of dog pooch bags, please contact the City directly.
Failure to remove excreta may result in a $100 penalty.
