50% of survey complete.

Follow interest from council representatives at recent workshops and conferences LMH Consulting/Paws4Play is collaborating with the Australian Institute of Animal Management (AIAM), interested councils and organisations to collect and share benchmark information (where authorised) with participating councils.
To date there has been a specific interest in better understanding issues, remedies and opportunities associated with:
  • trends in the planning and management of fenced (dog parks) and unfenced dog off-leash areas
  • policy and provision rationale
  • service level planning and integration of planning off-leash areas with open space planning
  • 'incident trends' associated with off leash provision/policy or changes in policy
  • maintenance and compliance resourcing
  • other topics that are raised by participating councils
  • community compliance and education
  • case studies
We are happy to add other topics to the research project.

You can re-enter the survey as many times as you need to and can send the email with the link on to other members of your team.
