Auckland Regional Parks summary of dog policies and by laws
NOTE: Dogs are controlled on Regional Parks in terms of the Dog Control Act 1996 and bylaws set by the relevant territorial local authority for the area. Section 37.2 of the Regional Parks Management Plan sets out the general policies for dogs on Regional Parks but the detailed policy and bylaws are those set out in the relevant territorial local authority dog control policies and bylaws.

Generally, the policies allow dogs on regional parks only where they do not pose a nuisance or threat to the health and safety of park users, livestock or indigenous fauna.

Where dogs are permitted on regional parkland they must be under control at all times.

Dog owners shall be responsible for removing and disposing of dog droppings.

Dogs may be permitted a part of an approved event, e.g. dog trials. Applications for such events will be dealt with as discretionary activities.

The ARC reserves the right to destroy dogs found molesting native species or stock.

Should parks staff or an animal control agency impound a dog any outstanding fees for the release of the animal are the responsibility of the owner.

Dog owners will also be held liable for damage caused to livestock or native fauna.
