The Glovebox Guide for Managing Wild Dogs (4th edition 2020) 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.
The 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 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.
