Controlling Your Dogs

Following recent amendments to the Dangerous Dog Act, owners are reminded that they have legal responsibility for the behaviour of their dogs in and around their homes.

It’s against the law to let a dog be dangerously out of control anywhere, such as a public place, a neighbour’s house or garden or in the owner’s home. A dog could be deemed to be dangerously out of control if it injures someone or makes someone worried that it might injure them.  The law applies to all dogs.

Owners who are deemed to have a dangerously out of control dog risk receiving a police caution, unlimited fine and even imprisonment.

With this in mind, tenants are requested to ensure that their dogs are kept well under control when visited by Tai Tarian staff. If necessary, staff have the right to request that the dog is removed for the duration of their visit.
