Dog Exercise AreasTe whakakorikori kurī

A well-behaved dog responds to commands, is well socialised, and is walked at least once a day. Napier is fortunate to have two dedicated dog exercise areas along with a network of doggy poo-bag dispensers across the city.

Room to roam

Council's legal requirement to have regard to:

  • the exercise and recreational needs of dogs and their owners and
  • the need to minimise danger, distress and nuisance to the community generally would be enhanced if areas specifically where dogs may be exercised at large were provided for dog owners. This would not only allow dog owners freedom areas but would signal to the public generally to expect the presence of dogs in recreational areas. The establishment of exercise areas convenient to most dog owners is desirable.

We have several dog exercise areas dotted across the city. The map below shows you where: you can also print off this PDF of Napier's on and off lead areas for the fridge door.
