Council adopted a reviewed Domestic Animal Management Plan
2021-25 at its 14 December 2021 meeting.

Provide feedback on our draft plan

Exploring the possibility of an off-leash dog park in Nagambie and more ranger patrols are some of the improvements to Strathbogie Shire Council’s Draft Domestic Animal Management Plan.

Through our community survey we have heard there are three key areas in which our community wants us to do more, these being:

  • Dogs wandering streets and involved in aggressive incidents
  • cats wandering away from owners’ property, and
  • more off lead dog areas within the municipality.

To address these concerns our Draft Domestic Animal Management Plan includes more regular proactive patrols and community events promoting responsible ownership of dogs.

We will also publicly promote the outcomes of dog attack prosecutions to discourage this type of behaviour.

When it comes to concerns about wandering cats, we will develop educational material to promote the benefits of preventing cats from wandering and gauge community feedback on a possible cat curfew for the municipality.

The draft plan also outlines the possibility of an off-leash dog park in the Nagambie area and if viable, it will be established during the life of this plan.

We encourage you to read the draft plan and our frequently asked questions in the document library.
