DogsAnimal Management at Glenorchy City Council principally relates to dogs within our community.  Our Animal Management officers enforce and adhere to the Tasmanian Dog Control Act 2000 and Council’s Dog Management Policy (2009- 2014) for the management and laws relating to the controlling of dogs. Glenorchy promotes responsible dog ownership and recommends all dog owners:

  • Ensure their dog is currently registered with Council
  • Walk your dog on a lead
  • Always clean up after your dog
  • Keep your dog secure and confined to your own yard
  • Don’t let your dog cause a nuisance to others.


There is an interactive dog exercise areas map available here: Dog Exercise Areas
