Dog Control Areas

There are certain areas within the Hauraki District where dogs are restricted (on-leash only) or prohibited as part of the Hauraki District Council Consolidated Bylaw. These areas include beaches, children’s playgrounds, sections of the Hauraki Rail Trail, Department of Conservation land and some urban areas (for example shopping areas, sports fields, picnic areas, etc). If you have a dog with you it is your responsibility to look for dog control signage.

For a full description including maps of prohibited areas please view the Dog Control Areas (503KB) Adobe pdf document or the full Control of Dogs Bylaw. (Please note this bylaw is in the process of being updated to include the new Waikino to Waihi section of the Hauraki Rail Trail.)

Clean Up After Your Dog

Let’s keep our public places clean for everyone to enjoy. Failure to remove your dog’s droppings from public areas is an offence against the Council’s Control of Dogs Bylaw and carries a fine.
