New dog walking app launched

Monday, 6 February 2017

Our new dog walking app called Park Your Pet is now available through the Apple App Store and Google Play.

The new application provides:

  • the most extensive information available for the community and their four-legged friends

  • our dog control rules in an easily accessible format using coloured icons for on leash and off leash parks, ensuring a safe experience for the wider community

  • events for the whole family including pets will also be made available through the app. 

With more than 1,250 square kilometres of coastal, rural and urban areas, the vast range of open spaces require strict dog control orders to ensure that people, other animals and the natural environment are protected. 

In coastal areas residents are advised to observe the signs according to the dog rules in place in that location.

We will continue developing the app to add new features according to the needs of customers.
