Before we proceed with the project we want to determine your needs.

About the project

We are investigating a Fenced Off-Leash Dog Park trial but before we proceed with the project we want to determine the needs of our community. Taking a short survey will help us understand what you want.

The trial site will be fenced for the purpose for exercising pet dogs and the implementation of a trial could cost around $31,000. This will include fencing, park benches, dog water fountain and dog bag dispenser. Additional costs may include landscaping, lighting and shelter.

Benefits:

  • Dog-to-dog socialisation
  • Safe, restricted environment to exercise dogs
  • A meeting place for dog owners to socialise
  • A dog recreational area for tourists passing through the district
  • Encourage and foster affordable recreational opportunities
  • Accessible place for seniors and people with a disability to exercise their dogs
  • Promotes responsible pet ownership

Challenges and risks:

  • Aggressive dog behaviour (dog-on-people attacks, dog-on-dog attacks)
  • Dog faeces
  • On-going maintenance costs
  • Transmission area for dog diseases (low vaccination rate in Latrobe City)
  • Unattended dogs
  • Unsupervised children attending the facility
