Dog Exercise Areas

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 owners’ responsibility to ensure the dog collar is worn and a lead is available.

Dog excreta (poo)

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.
