'Doog the Right Thing' - Centennial Parklands

Centennial Parklands launches the ‘Doog the Right Thing’ campaign which will reward positive behaviour of both dog owners and their pooches for effective dog control when they visit Centennial Park.

From November 21 until December 19, 2017, good behaviour will be rewarded by Parklands Rangers patrolling Centennial Park with free coffee and doggy treat vouchers to be redeemed from the Centennial Homestead Pantry!

Over 1.1 million dog walks are made in Centennial Park each year among a range of other community activities and groups. 

Like all great parks in the world, we have rules and regulations to benefit visitors and to help us protect the Parks’ plants and animal life,” said Kim Ellis, Executive Director, Botanic Gardens & Centennial Parklands.

“This campaign supports our annual ‘Share the Park’ campaign and positively raises awareness of the Parklands’ rules and regulations and how they can do the right thing when they are physically in the Park.”

Additionally, visitors who post a creative 30-second video to social media showing how they ‘Doog the Right Thing’ in the Park could win an overnight stay at The Rangers’ Residence with their dog.


1. Respect the Park by picking up and binning dog poo in one of the 360 bins across the Parklands.

2. Obey on and off leash areas and get to know where they are in Centennial Park.

3. Keep dogs under effective control at all time in line with NSW State Law.

4. Keep dogs off the horse track at all times.

Reinforced by the Eastern Suburbs Dog Training Club, spokesperson Robert Fairhead said: “Our club has had the privilege to train dogs in Centennial Park since 1962. Not all of the visitors in the Park have this much experience so a campaign like 'Doog the Right Thing' is an important reminder for the whole community.”

‘Doog the Right Thing’ runs from Tuesday 21 November to Wednesday 19 December 2017.
