Walking your dog is an integral part of being a responsible pet owner. Regular walks are not only enjoyable for the dog, but have wonderful health benefits for owners. Remember that dogs must be on a lead at all times unless otherwise indicated.
There are a number of areas in the City of Whitehorse where dog owners can responsibly exercise their animals off lead. Remember that although your dog may be off lead, it must still be under your control at all times. See a list of off-lead areas in Whitehorse below.
Certain areas of our parks, such as playgrounds, picnic areas and sporting fields, are set aside for use by other members of the community. Council requests that dog owners keep their dogs away from these areas. In all other public areas, always ensure your dog wears its registration tag and is controlled on a leash.
