If you are going into the Tropics then you must give your dog heartworm tablets

From my understanding, if you want to take any form of wildlife (other tha human) into the NT you need a permit. We had a pet a cockatiel when we met a ranger at Glen Helen. He didn't get to concerned but said that we need a permit before we crossed the border into NT. I think it might be the same for dogs from interstate.

I don't think a domestic dog qualifies as "wildlife".

Highways are excellent. Other roads depend on the amount of rain, should be good from now until November.

No problems unless the dog likes to eat meat...

For some reason they like the 10/80 baits buried up there for the dingo's and fox's.
When the buried 10/80 bait is eaten the dog will die a painful death.

You can't see the 10/80 bait, the dog smells it, digs it up and dies.

We lived in the NT for a few years. Our dogs were always kenneled whenever we went camping. Its just too hard, especially near water and crocs. Ever tried to keep a Retreaver out of water?

You can't take them into Kakadu, Litchfield or Uluru National Park.

So if you intend to visit these places then "old mate" needs to go into a kennel for thier own safety if nothing else.

Mind you we came across a couple of Victorians that thought it would be a good idea to pitch their tent 5 metres from the waters edge of a croc infested billabong in Kakadu with their Jack Russell!

They tried to keep it hidden but that doesn't stop the crocs.
