The Dundee Dog Walking Code

Help Share our Parks and Green Spaces

Dundee City Council want more people to get out and about as part of a healthy active lifestyle. Accessing the outdoors responsibly helps make sure everyone has a good experience, including those who are nervous near dogs. Dog walkers can help by using our  Dog Walking Code (below) which is contained within our 'Taking the lead' leaflet (670KB PDF):
  • Always pick up after your dog.
  • Keep your dog under control.
  • Do not allow your dog to chase wildlife.
  • Cemeteries and golf courses are not for dog exercising. Keep your dog on a short lead and stick to main paths.
  • Dogs are not allowed in play areas, on sport pitches in use, golf tees, greens or bunkers and where there are ground nesting birds.
  • Please look out for signs showing local rules. Animals are excluded from some places at certain times.
  • Keep your dog out of formal flower beds.
  • Put your dog on a short lead when near children, picnic areas, horses or sports pitches or if requested by Parks Management staff.

Controlling your dog is easy and fun with dog training lessons.
