You will require a permit to own a dangerous dog. A dog can be declared as dangerous by an authorised council officer or a local court because it has done any of the following:
- attacked or killed a person or animal without provocation
- repeatedly threatened to attack or repeatedly chased a person or animal without provocation
- is kept or used for hunting (not including a dog used for locating, flushing, pointing or retrieving birds or vermin).
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
