Dogs can be a great addition to your family, but they are also a big responsibility and must be cared for correctly to ensure the happiness and safety of your dog, your family and the community.

At the Barkly Regional Council we encourage responsible pet ownership including:

  • Registering your dog
  • Micro-chipping your dog
  • Sterilising your dog
  • Vaccinating your dog
  • Providing adequate food and clean water for your dog
  • Properly exercising your dog
  • Ensuring your dog has a clean home with adequate space and a secure yard
  • Ensuring your dog does not engage in nuisance barking
  • Ensuring your dog is on a leash and under your control in public places
