Glovebox Guide for Managing Wild Dogs

Download the guide

 

The Glovebox Guide for Managing Wild Dogs is a general guide to managing populations of wild dogs in Australia. This guide uses the term ‘wild dogs’ to describe any wild-living members of the genus Canis, including pure dingoes, feral domestic dogs and crossbreds between the two. Wild dogs present significant economic, environmental and social impacts in many places, but are also viewed as an important part of most mainland environments.

Wild Dog Glovebox GuideThe need to manage wild dogs for their impacts has not diminished in the last 200 years. There might be new laws or  different control tools and strategies, but the principles remain the same. This guide seeks to enable best-practice wild dog management by providing broadly applicable information on:

  • wild dog ecology
  • identifying wild dogs and their impacts
  • management tools and strategies
  • working dog safety
  • policy and legislation.

This glovebox guide does not cover all the details of wild dog management, so you should consider participation in  developing community wild dog management plans or enrolment in recognised vertebrate pest management courses.
