Dangerous dogs

Reporting dangerous dog and dog attacks

Please report to the Council any situation where dogs bite, attack or worry people, livestock or other dogs or persistent anti-social behaviour involving dogs.

All incidents where a dog attacks another dog should be reported to us immediately, particularly if there is injury to one or both dogs.  While formal action may not be able to be taken the information is important for future reference.  If possible, the address of the owner of the offending dog should be obtained, however, a report can still be made where this is unknown. 

All incidents where dogs bite people should be reported to us and the Police immediately. 

Prohibited Breeds
If you suspect that someone has a dog of a breed type that is prohibited please contact us and the Police. The breed types currently prohibited are Pit Bull Terriers, Japanese Tosas, Dogo Argentinos and Fila Brasileiros. More information
