3 Dogs & Renting in Perth

Recommended Posts

Guest madgeorge64

Hi all,

I looking to come out on a 457 visa ,with wife & 2 girls, looking at other sites, it looks impossible to bring our 3 pet dogs out, as it seems the maximum can be 2, & we,d be renting has anyone else rented with more than 2 dogs.

You can apply to the council for a permit once you arrive, but unfortunately you can't be given any guarantees before you arrive. Are they large breed dogs as there is a big difference between having 3 jack Russells and 3German Shepherds?


If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

No but we have one dog and 2 cats and had no problem with a rental. Look at the Council website on the area you will be moving too, that should tell you about dogs and how many you can have registered. You could be ok

as far as im aware in perth u are only allowed to have 2 dogs registered to one property ....and if u were in a rental im sure they would pretty much insist u didnt have anymore ....not sure if there is any special licences available if u rented rural for instance ....if u know what area u are going to ...u could phone the shire office and ask

A link to Perth council regarding pets etc - like others have mentioned it might be worth a quick email or phonecall.

 

One thing I noticed is that they are registered to the person and not the property so not sure if you could register 2 and your other half register 1

One thing quoted on the Perth Council website was the fact this this only applies to within the council boundary as shown here.

Does this mean outer suburbs have their own local councils

There are kennel zones (where a lot of boarding kennels/breeders are), I assume if you got a rental in those areas it would be ok.


I just want PIO to be a happy place where people are nice to each other and unicorns poop rainbows

pretty sure its the property john ...my daughter recently got a dog [partner had one already] and when they went to register they were told there was already 2 dogs registered to that address ....one was from the previous tenant so this was removed allowing for their 2 .....they stay in the outer suburbs not the city

You will find each council has their own laws so it's worth checking with each one before you settle on a suburb

Hi Claire,

I am

In the same boat as you. I have 4 border collies but one may have to stay behind as she's getting on a bit. Did you find out any more info. I'm not sure I could leave any of my guys behind :-( we compete in agility over here and I would be gutted if I can't make the move. I can't believe that they only allow 2 dogs. Do you know if this is the same if you go out of town a bit further? Any info greatly received!

It can vary. Also you can apply for a licence/permit to keep more. But I think neighbours etc can veto it.

 

I'm sure others will be along to explain better.

 

In the meantime look up the local council/Gov websites for rules on dogs. Each suburb/borough will have its own policy, so check the ones that interest you as a place to live.
