City of Hobart Dog Management Strategy

The City of Hobart is responsible for managing dogs in its municipal area.

We operate within the Dog Control Act 2000 and the City of Hobart's Dog Management Strategy 2014-18(PDF, 348KB) to create a caring, happy and safe environment for dogs and minimize their impact on other people, animals and the environment.

Review of the Dog Management Strategy

The City of Hobart is reviewing its Dog Management Strategy.

Pet and non-pet owners are invited to submit their feedback on a variety of things including a code relating to responsible dog ownership, the provision of declared areas such as off lead, training, prohibited and restricted areas, a fee structure, and any other relevant matters.

The first round of consultation was completed at the end of May. The second round expected to occur in August when the community will be informed about the outcomes of the initial review.
