We strive to promote responsible dog ownership, not simply through enforcement, but also through educational and awareness raising activities, partnership working with community groups and more collaborative working across the council.
To help address all dog related issues:
dogs are not allowed on some land within the council area, namely play areas, Multi-use Games Areas, artificial pitches, bowling greens, tennis courts and golf courses
dogs are not allowed on Kirkwoods Road Playing Fields, Lough Moss Playing Field beside MUGA, Glenmore Playing Fields and Billy Neill pitches 4, 6 & 7 (as identified in the sign below)
dogs are only allowed on other playing fields from 1st May to 31st August
dogs must always be kept on a lead in cemeteries, burial grounds and caravan parks in our area
a council officer may request that a dog be placed on a lead in area where necessary to prevent nuisance, annoyance or disturbance to a person or other animal
