Create an off-leash area for Melbourne CBD Dogs

Melbourne City Council are drafting their Open Space Strategy and we are calling on all pet lovers / owners of Melbourne CBD to get involved and bring to the attention of the council that the residents of Melbourne deserve a pet friendly area (permitted off leash area).

Parks are good for dogs, their guardians and the whole community.

Off-leash parks:

  • Promote good canine physical health and socialization, reducing nuisance behaviors and making dogs better canine citizens
  • Discourage delinquent and criminal activity in parks – Encourage people to exercise and stimulate social interaction with other people – Accommodate senior citizens and the disabled, who cannot always walk their dogs on leash.
  • Build a community of people committed to parks, community involvement and the environment.

We naturally tend to assume that off-leash parks are primarily for the benefit of our beloved dogs, but experienced dog park users know better. Off-leash parks offer just as many benefits to humans as they do to dogs: both to dog guardians as well as the wider community.
