MORE PARKS FOR PETS IN THE SHIRE! Please can we have another off leash area for our dogs.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!

There are currently only 6 off leash dog friendly areas within Sutherland Shire & the one at Cronulla is only for limited times of the day.

With more residents in the area than ever before and housing density increasing every day, our back yards are becoming smaller and smaller and barking dogs in homes and gardens are on the increase.

There are leash laws enforced in many areas of the Shire and it has become very difficult to exercise our dogs safely off the leash, while still keeping them under effective control.

Research has shown that well socialised and exercised dogs are likely to be healthier, happier and less aggressive.

Designated off-leash dog areas provide a safe community setting where dogs can play with each other.  There is a real lack of decent off leash areas for dogs to stretch their legs and socialise, considering the number of registered dogs in the Sutherland Shire area.

The Shire is promoted as being a family friendly area, so with dogs increasingly becoming part of the family unit, we we desperately need another off leash area for our furry family members.
