Taking a dog on the Canning stock route

Hi all, can you tell me if it is allowable to take a dog on the Canning stock route with you. I did put in a search, but didn't get an answer so sorry to bother you if it has already been posted. The dog is a whippet and very well behaved. Thank you,

Dog bans are only in National Parks but I also ran a search to check what others have said - here is a search result page with some good answers for you - Search for dog CSR

Thanks Michelle for that. I have read the articles and appreciate your response. The 1080 is a worry but something we will watch out for and the idea of a muzzle is a good one. Thank you again, Jan

we took our Maltese with us in 2010 - no problems (she pretended NOT to hear the call of the wild at night)

We used to have a whippet and whether it is well behaved makes no difference, it's either allowed or it's not. .

If it's not a nat park, then go for it..

We travelled the Canning 2 years ago and there were two dogs in the party. They did take muzzles or have them on leashes. The 1080 is a real problem especially near station property. The other problem is dingos. If they get your dog the pack will kill them. Keep your dog close especially at night.

While living in Darwin there was a report in a paper of a guy taking his bull mastiff and pup for a walk in a local park at Parap - a pack of dingos came out of the scrub and attacked. They separated the mother from the pup - killed the pup and badly mauled the mother all the while the owner was kicking and yelling at the dingos.

Here is a picture of a dingo at night in our camp taken with a black light motion sensor camera.

Cheers

Thank you everybody for your replies. It does seem allowable, but I have certainly taken on board your warnings with the 1080, and I will invest in a muzzle just in case. The trip is planned for next year, so will keep you informed. Thanks everyone once again. These forums are fantastic.
