    So I don't know what the people in this place are actually paying rego for either, if its free for mine I dont get why It costs someone else? just because it's entire?

    Oh and theres no poo bags in Gympie, I don't even buy them just use woolies plastic bags or hope she takes a dump down the bush tracks on her walks.

    Our council has started building fenced dog parks. And I've started sending them emails on how to make the dog parks useful - starting by getting rid of the fences.

    They do supply a lot of poop bags and empty the bins occasionally - this is good.

    And when a white husky attacked a number of dogs and me - they were able to use the rego database to find the dog based on my description, and talk to the owners about "effective dog control" and preventing dog attacks. That dog has not been back to our oval - bit worried that it hasn't been getting walked at all, but that's an improvement on attack-dog.

    It costs a bit to have a couple of dog catchers available. It also costs a bit to send out the rego renewal notices, and collect the money, update the databases and then send out the tags.

    My annual fee is down to about $25 because dog is desexed, microchipped, and trained.

    PS our supermarkets don't dish out free shopping bags any more.

    Our council fees for lifetime registration is:-
    desexed $40
    pensioner $15
    undesexed $150
    Registered breeder undesexed $40
    Assistance dog free

    We do not have limited on numbers of dog or cats per household. It's up to you to manage the animals you have if council receives a complain about noise, uncared for animals, barking etc a single dog household will be treated the same as a multiple dog house hold or breeder.

    Hence we have quite a few breeders in this area.

    Wow, we have a 2 dog limit here unless you apply for a kennel license.

    Some councils are strictly 2 dogs only, no exceptions.

    How come get rid of the fences Hyac?

    You're only supposed to go in the dog park if you have effective control. So theoretically - no need for a fence.

    In my experience - if there is a good fence, owners go in there, pay no attention to their dogs, have no control at all, and their dogs bail up other dogs against the fences where there is no escape.

    And given it's dedicated use, the bins are almost always outside the fence - people decide cleaning up after their dogs is completely optional and they opt out.

    In our council it depends on how large your yard/property is. We can have up to 4 dogs on ours cause we are acreage, but after two we need to get a permit!

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

    We are in the Gold Coast City Council.
    For Snoop - desexed is $95 for 3 years.
    We have a dog beach at the Spit, a great riverfront offleash park at Isle of Capri where they can swim as well, a dog beach at Tallebudgera and off leash areas at Broadbeach Park, Rosser Park and other places I have not been to.
    There are poop bags and bins at all the above.
    It is actually a pretty dog friendly place so I dont mind the fee considering the quality of the parks here.
    Mind you the rates/water charges here are eye watering.
