Where to Walk your DOG

According to the Macedon Ranges Council all dogs (within our shire) must now be exercised on leash unless in designated OFF-LEASH areas.

New signage is currently being installed throughout the Shire. Some footpaths will also be stencilled further indicating dog ON-LEASH requirements.

In the absence of signage, an area should always be assumed to be ON-LEASH. Dogs must also be under effective control at all times and should not be left unattended.
