Dog Exercise Areas

The Shire recognises the need to have public places where dogs can be walked and head into streets, parks and reserves for exercise.

For the comfort and safety of all residents, it is important to remember that dogs must be held on a leash by a person capable of controlling the dog in any public place within the boundaries of the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale, except in approved dog exercise areas.

Please note that dogs are not permitted off-lead in any street (this includes a verge area), and in any place without the property owner's permission.
