Join Clarence Dog Owners' Group

Next Meeting

Rosny Library 11 December 2021 at 11am

If people have items for the agenda, they need to be sent to no later than 3 December 2021.


A public meeting was held at Rosny Library on 19 June 2021 to form the Clarence Dog Owners Group to advocate for dog owners in the Clarence municipality.   CDOGS is affiliated with the Hobart Dog Walking Association Inc.


Join CDOGS is crucial for  information sharing and uniting dog owners about the draft Clarence Dog Management Policy Review.  Stage Two will go before Council soon.  

It is recommended concerned dog owners either join the Clarence Dog Owners Group or the Hobart Dog Walking Association (HDWA), which will be affiliated with the Clarence group and follow on Facebook.  The HDWA has Clarence members.

The contents on this webpage and the Draft Clarence Dog Management Policy and Schedule of Declared Areas illustrate why Clarence dog owners need to unite and take action.

What's at risk

There is a long hit-list of tracks and trails proposed to change from off-lead to on-lead, including:


  • Natone Hill, Bedlam Walls and Pilchers Hill, Geilston Bay

  • Waverley Park, Mornington

  • Many bushland areas near Rokeby

  • The entire Tangara Trail from Cambridge to South Arm. 

It is recommended when you complete the survey or write to the Council you state you want to continue with off-lead exercise on beaches and at Anzac Park, as the Round Two survey provides the option to vote for Anzac Park to become on-lead and for restrictions on beaches.
