Govt seeks ideas on dog control laws

Have your say on dog control laws - for the next two weeks, the Government is listening.

Associate Local Government Minister Louise Upston says she wants to hear about ideas for action at all levels - what can be done by government, councils, dog owners and others.

"Our dog control laws value the role of dogs as pets, companions and valued contributors to sectors of our economy and this will continue to be the case," she said.

"But we need to find ways to reduce the danger posed by high-risk dogs and irresponsible dog owners."

Feedback opened on Monday and runs through to August 14.
