Question: My Owners Corporation has a bylaw setting a size limit for dogs in our building. Is this reasonable? How can I know how big my puppy will get?
Answer: There are all types of pets by-laws including those with weight restrictions.
There are all types of pets by-laws including those with weight restrictions – we have seen them limit weight to 10kg or less but have not yet seen these tested at NCAT.
Hopefully in the context of other large dogs at the scheme, provided you obtain the written approval of the strata committee to keep your dog and disclose the type of breed, they will not single you out to remove your dog if it exceeds the weight limit.
