Off leash dog friendly parks & beaches in WA 2017-10-14T01:12:29+00:00

Do you live in WA and you’re looking for a change of scene from your regular park, or maybe you are just visiting and you want to find the best places to take your dog?

In the list below simply click on the local area that you’re interested in. You will be directed to the relevant council webpage with details of the dog exercise areas (please note some of the links are to PDF pages so you will need Adobe reader). Local councils are constantly updating and adding to their lists of leash free areas, and trialling new ones, so remember to check back every now and then for new places to play!

Dog parks offer great benefits for owner and dog alike:

– For dogs, they offer the freedom of running without constraint, allowing them to play, sniff, chase, roll and romp to their heart’s content. Many problems such as digging and barking arise because dogs are restless and bored. Often, these problems can be solved simply by giving dogs more exercise.

– For dog owners they offer a great chance to get some exercise, contribute to your own health and well-being, and meet other dog owners.

Don’t forget to pack your Road Refresher non spill water bowl into the car so they have plenty of fresh water to drink before and after exercising. And if it’s a hot day pack your Cool Coat too to help cool them down both in the car trip and during/after exercising.

The ACT Government website has some great information on dog park etiquette which we think is a must read – Fenced Dog Parks Rules and Responsibilities.
It is recognised that dogs benefit greatly from the chance to run freely, and for this reason the Companion Animals Act makes it a duty for councils to provide “off-leash” areas for the exercise of dogs. These areas may only be available for this purpose for limited hours, but at any time there must be at least one place in each council area where dogs can be exercised without a lead.

Leash Free areas are designed to allow pet owners to exercise their dogs without a leash in an open environment where they are not likely to impact on other recreational area users. Please remember that owners are still required to be able to control their dog before releasing them for exercise and they must clean up after their animals immediately.
