Responsible Pet Owner
Owning a pet is great fun but also comes with great responsibility. There are only a few simple things that can be done to keep both your pet and neighbours happy.
- Make sure that your property is entirely fence off to prevent your pet from wandering.
- Ensure your pet is properly trained (were applicable) to avoid aggressive and boisterous behaviour
- Ensure all vaccinations and worming schedules are adhered to
- Always supervise young children around your pets.
- Use a leash when you are out and dispose of any litter left by them in a public place
- Make sure they are registered and identified so they can be returned if lost (Dogs only - Registration Costs)
