Dogs and Country
  • The health of the place we live in has a big impact on our health.
  • Dogs can help us live well on country but they can also dirty water, affect wildlife and spread disease around where we live.
  • Rubbish
  • Sewerage
  • Yards
  • Wildlife
  • Feral animals
  • Dog-dingo hybrids
  • Wildlife
  • Dogs can help people hunt on country, and help keep them safe from snakes and other wild dogs
  • But dogs can also chase, hurt, and eat a lot of wildlife around communities.
  • Feral animals
  • Feral animals degrade country and compete with wildlife
  • People-created resources like water troughs support feral animals more than wildlife, who are more drought tolerant.
  • Stopping dripping taps and fencing off rubbish tips helps keep feralsdownas well as making communities healthier for people and dogs
  • Dingoes keep feral cats and foxes down
  • Dingoes
  • Dogs cross-breeding with dingoes threatens the survival of the dingo.
  • Dog-dingo hybrids can behave differently to dingoes, harassing stock more and breeding up more quickly.
  • Undesexeddogs in remote communities are a source of strays right in dingo heartlands.
  • Water
  • Guna is filled with gut germs that make people sick
  • If our water sources get gut germs like Giardia in them, both people and dogs can get sick and spread disease.
  • Germs live longer in wet places, so fixing dripping taps and keeping yards dry keeps our homes healthy
  • Make sure there is always clean water for dogs to drink.
  • Rubbish
  • Rubbish is a great home for germs
  • Keep rubbish in the bin away from dogs and flies that will spread its germs.
  • Kimbes(nappies) are important to keep away from dogs, because it’s a direct source of human gut germs into dog guts, from where it can spread through dogs poos around the yard.
  • Fence off rubbish tips to stop dog and kids getting in.
  • Sewerage
  • Fix leaky sewerage pipes and tanks, and keeping kids and dogs out of sewerage ponds.
  • Dog poos are also sewerage, so keeping yards clear of dog poosis important too.
  • Desexing dogs
  • Puppies can’t fight off gut diseases very well. Germs multiply a lot inside the pups. Having a lot of pups multiplies the problem!
  • Desexeddogs also don’t contribute to overpopulation, are easier to keep healthy, and don’t threaten the dingo through crossbreeding.
  • Keeping where we live healthy helps keep everyone and everything happy, strong and healthy: Land, water, wildlife, dogs and people
