Other than traffic noise, barking dog complaints are the world's number one noise complaint.

Farmers are the backbone of rural Australia.  Dog attacks from both wild dogs and from dogs that are not properly controlled by their owners can have a negative impact on a farmer's livelihood.

Information about pet greyhounds registered on the NSW Pet Registry no longer needing to be muzzled - unless they in off-leash areas and have not been through approved training

Amendments to the Companion Animals Act relating to restricted breeds of dog and dangerous dog came into force on the 13 January 2006.

In 1998 the Companion Animals Act was introduced to set into law the rights and responsibilities surrounding pet ownership in NSW.

All reports of attacks on a person or animal, as well as other incidents of dog attacks in the Hawkesbury will be investigated by Council Officers

Council recommends that residents consider property size and potential impacts on neighbours, when deciding on whether to keep poultry in suburban areas and the number of poultry to be kept.

Under the Companion Animals Act 1998 any dog which is in a place (other than where it is ordinarily kept) unaccompanied by a responsible person is a “stray”.

If an animal has trespassed onto your property it is recommended that you contact your neighbours to identify the owner. The Local Land Services may also be able to assist if the animal is tagged. If you have not been able to identify the owner, contact Council and we may be able to assist you in finding the owner.
