Our Community Safety Officers will be giving out ‘positive paws goody bags’ to pet owners as part of a new reward scheme. The goody bags include pet toys, treats and dog disposal bags & dispensers as well as pet information and discounts for local pet suppliers. The initiative is set to reward pet owners who are doing the right thing by picking up after their pet and being in effective control of their pet in public spaces.
CSO’s regularly patrol Claremont’s parks and open spaces, so if you are doing the right thing you may be in with a chance of a reward! To qualify you will need to comply with all of the following recommendations of how to keep your pet safe whilst out and about in Claremont.
How to keep your pet safe in public:
- Microchip & register your pet with your local council
- Ensure your dog wears a collar displaying their name, address, phone number and registration tag
- Keep them under effective control at all times, adhering to on and off-lead restrictions
- Pick up after your pet!
Community Safety Officers are here to help you and to protect our parks and reserves. If you have lost your dog, or you or your dog have been subject to a dog attack call the Community Safety Team on 9285400.
