2. Responsible Pet Ownership

To be a responsible pet owner it is essential that you understand your obligations under NSW Legislation. Before welcoming any animal into your family please consider the responsibilities of owning a pet. These responsibilities include:

  • Looking after your pet’s welfare including its nutritional and exercise needs.
  • Ensuring your dog or cat is wearing a collar and tag with your contact details on it at all times.
  • Placing your dog on a lead when in a public place, other than a designated off leash area.
  • Picking up after your dog immediately when out walking and disposing of faeces appropriately.
  • Providing enough stimulation and exercise to keep your dog amused during the day to ensure barking does not become excessive.
  • Securing your animal appropriately when travelling in a car or on a utility.
  • Desexing your pet is recommended to prevent the likelihood of aggression and reduce unwanted litters.
  • Microchipping and Registration: This is a two part process that requires owners to-

     

    1. Have their animals implanted with a microchip from the time they are 12 weeks and prior to being sold.
    2. Register their animals with their local council by 6 months of age.

      Microchipping and Registration of your dog or cat is the best way of ensuring you can be reunited with your pet should it go missing. Creating a profile on the NSW Pet Registry and keeping your contact details updated, is the easiest way for you to be contacted if your pet is found.

  • Although under NSW Legislation, Cats are free to roam, it is recommended that you keep your cat indoors when possible to ensure its safety and that of native wildlife.
