Dog ownership in NZ

Postby Cadairgirl » Tue 29 Dec 2009 19:51 GMT

As an owner of a German Shepherd dog who goes everywhere with me, even when I go out riding, I just wondered about the laws in NZ for walking dogs. I was horrified to hear the other day that dogs are not allowed into NZs national parks because of ground nesting birds. Is this true? Not even on leads?? In which case, how does the average NZer enjoy the outdoors with their faithful friend?
One of our favourite things is to go out walking for the day, usually in the Welsh hills and mountains, I don't know what I'd do if I had to leave Keiser at home...
Any thoughts much appreciated.
