Dog Local Law

Background

The new proposed Dog Local Law 2022 will replace the Shire’s current Local Law - Keeping of Dogs (2004) and aims to provide up to date and relevant management and enforcement processes in respect to the keeping, and the control of dogs, and dog facilities within the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale.

If you own a dog, there will be little or no change for you and your dog.

  1. Dogs are adequately confined by fence, gate, enclosure or other confinement measures.
  2. Dogs are not a nuisance.
