How do you think domestic dogs and cats should be managed in Strathbogie Shire?

Is the registration process clear and simple? Are there enough places for your dog to play?

These are just some of the questions Strathbogie Shire Council is asking residents as it works to review its Domestic Animal Management Plan.

Strathbogie Shire Council Mayor, Cr Chris Raeburn, said the plan outlined the key issues, objectives and priorities for how cats and dogs would be managed in our Shire.

“We know that pets are important to people living in our Shire, so we want to make sure we’re working with our community to develop a management plan that meets their needs,” Cr Raeburn said.

“We’ve seen such a positive reaction to the recent opening of the Euroa Off-Leash Dog Park we’re keen to hear how else we can improve our services.

“We have a bit of an internal motto happening at the Shire at the moment and that’s ‘We can do better’, but we need our community’s input to get there.”

The plan covers issues such as:

  • The importance of pets to Shire residents
  • Concerns about animal-related matters (nuisance animals, dog attacks, dangerous dogs and restricted breeds)
  • Ideas and resources to help locals manage and care for their pets
  • Dogs in parks and reserves, and
  • How well information provided by Council about pets and animal management addresses the needs of residents.

Locals are encouraged to visit to share their thoughts, feedback and advice.

Here you can read the current plan, complete a survey or just share a picture of your pet and let us know they’re important to you.
