If a dog is repeatedly at large, barks, chases vehicles or people, repeatedly causes substantial damage to other people’s property, or places the health of people or animals at risk, Council can declare it a nuisance dog. 

Dogs are required to be kept on a leash at all times in all parks in the Strathfield Council area, other than those designated as leash free areas.  Dog owners must clean up all dog waste and dispose of it responsibly.

To report a dog attack, please contact the nearest Police Station immediately. Also contact the Customer Service Centre on 9748 9999 with any information regarding the incident including the police event number.

A cat may also be declared a nuisance cat if it repeatedly damages other peoples property. Fines can apply to people who do not control their animals.
