Thread: council laws - anyone ignore them?

    We can only have 2 dogs (not sure about cats).. a neighbour had 3 dogs and was made by the council to give one up. Was heart breaking. She cried and begged but they wouldnt listen.
    She ended up giving the 2 little dogs (who were inseparable) to her son. They died shortly after. So sad.

    I have a Breeder and kennel license .....problem solved And we did a similar thing to Crested, except our neighbours are too far away and the foxes make more noise. Peacocks are worse LOL

    First of all i flew my 3 cat's over here without first looking at the rules and regulations of having them here. In New Zealand you don't have any regulations to adhere to in regards to cats - you can have as many as you like, they are allowed outdoors and they don't have to be registered. So silly me i thought Oz would be the same - it just didn't occur to me. So low and behold i get a note in my mailbox from the council for 1: unregistered cats 2: they were outdoors. So i trudge down to the council to register my 3 cats without a problem - i took all the freight paperwork down just incase, to show i didn't just go out and get an extra cat yesterday. To show that i indeed have had these cat's for 6 years.

    About a week or two later we came home with Molly from their pound - still no problems. Just recently we moved into a new home with my Mum and her two dogs. So now we have 3 dogs and 3 cats registered under the same property. Council haven't even batted an eyelid at us, we have had no complaints with any of the animals so i think as long as it stays that way we should be ok. As far as i'm concerned they probably don't care cause it means more money for them.

    I also choose to ignore the cats indoor rule, so yeah, i am breaking the rules, but i don't think they care - as i said, they're still making their money from it.
    In Logan in depends on your yard size, we're allowed 4 dogs, two need a permit though because we have more than 4000sqm of land, not that I would get another dog! My two are trouble enough! Molly will be an inside only cat too do no need to worry about her!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Tasmania City council, we're part of the main city and they pretty much allow anything. My parents live directly opposite us on the river and they had a helluva time getting a licence because they are 100 metres away from being in the same council as us.

    my old neighbour (Victoria), had 4 bloomin yappy chiwowas, not sure how to spell that, and not something meritous of looking up either.

    He complained to the council that my rottweiler looked into his garden. council warden came around to mine, i put the chair up against the fence for him to look at the 4 dogs next door, which barked throughout his visit. he came back and asked if he could take another look over the fence about a week later, still 4 dogs.
    Neighbour was forced to rehome 2.

    And both me and the ranger agreed, that neither of us knew how to train a dog, NOT to look into a neighbours garden. so neighbours complaint bit him in the arse.

    Thanks for the info

    I wont risk getting another dog if I can't get a permit then, there is no way I'd be able to give up a dog!
    It would probably be hard for me to get a permit though, it's my parents house and it's not a very big backyard at all so I would probably be denied.

    Council laws are stupid though, I live in a small town with lots of places I can let my dog run free and the council laws say 2 cats and 2 dogs, where as a town thats about 1.5 hours drive away is a lot bigger town and you can have 3 dogs and 5 cats

    My councils website has also deleted the page about animals and laws...
    So if I'm aloud to have 3 dogs (parental permission) then I guess I will need to go talk to the grumpy lady again lol

    They never asked............Kennel Licence is not to do with breeding, just having dogs in and out.

    I suppose it helped when they came and checked tht we had two solid kennel rooms with runs.......Good fencing, 2acre garden and we are on a property.

    But I have a friend who lives under the same shire in a village nearby and breeds cavaliers, she has five of them and three cats.....No problems, again a breeder license. We live in Corowa Shire, a very easy going lot.........

    Here in Tas kennel license reffers to the number of dogs permanently at your residence. We don't have breeder licences. It's different everywhere which makes it confusing.

    I live in the best shire for keeping dogs, no limit. They treat you the same if you've got 1 or 10, if someone complains about how the 1 dog dog home you'll be treated the same as if someone complains about the 10 dog home. Certainly they expect you to be sensible and not have more than you can manage or have room for, but as my council told me, they've been to houses where a person shouldn't have one dog and been to others where there are 10 and all are clean, happy and exercised.
