Infringements and Offences
The most common reasons for issuing infringements are:
- Failing to register your dog
- Failing to keep your dog under effective control
- Failing to keep your dog on a leash when required to do so
The infringement fees are set by legislation. The full list of infringement offences and fees are set out in Schedule 1 of the Dog Control Act 1996.
If you are issued with an infringement notice, your rights and the courses of action available to you is explained fully on the back of that notice.
