Summer dog rules now in force
Rodney District Council is reminding dog owners that summer rules for exercising dogs on a number of Rodney beaches are now in force.
Until March 19, when daylight savings finishes, dogs are not allowed on designated beaches from 9.00am to 7.00pm.
Dogs can be exercised on beaches before or after these times, but must be under control and any faeces removed.
In other areas including regional parks, public campgrounds, designated picnic areas, habitat sites and within 10 metres of playgrounds, dogs are prohibited at all times of year.
Rodney District Council’s Animal Control and bylaws manager Wayne Knightbridge encourages pet owners to find out more about the dog rules in Rodney and exactly which beaches the daylight savings rule applies to.
“Dog owners must be responsible for their dogs so that way we can all enjoy safe and clean beaches over summer,” says Mr Knightbridge.
For more information about Rodney District’s dog exercise rules, please visit www.rodney.govt.nz or call 0800 426 5169 and request a brochure.
