Sutherland Shire boasts a range of dog-friendly locations.

Dogs must be on a leash at all times unless you're in a designated off-leash area. On-leash or off, it is your responsibility to ensure your dog is always under control. Not everyone is comfortable around dogs and our public spaces should be safe and comfortable for everyone.

Be responsible and always pick up after your dog.

Off-leash areas
