The Whyalla City Council has decided to implement changes to the Dogs By-Law to allow canines to be off-leash on the beach.

The changes allow dogs to be released from their leash on the foreshore between the jetty to the mangroves, before 8am and after 9pm during Daylight-Saving summer time, and before 8am and after 6pm during the winter months.

In order for the dogs to be off-leash they have to be under effective control of the owner, meaning "the dog being close to the person and the person being able to see the dog at all times".
