    Dog friendly DOC managed land

    Doing some research for winter, yes they have a place on their website but there is a comment saying other areas may be ok. Only ar as cover d are malbourgh and Fiordland. Surely there is somewhere in Otago/Canterbury/west coast?

    Where do you take you dog and you know it's ok? Happy to apply for permits (kiwi trained) but don't have measles verification.

    Trying to work out a loop round the South island with 4wd dog and rifle taking my time and stopping for a few days in promising hunting grounds depending on weather as it will be over winter.

    As far as Otago and Southland goes, most of the public land outside of the National Parks you are allowed dogs.

    You can't have dogs in Leithen Bush due to the proximity of farmland. No sure about Waikaia.

    Dog allowed areas include:
    Catlins, Blue Mountains (need special hunting permit here, but you should be able to get a block mid-week), Waianakarua, most of the reserves throughout Central Otago

    Not sure about west coast or canterbury, but if not national park then most allow hunting dogs. No doubt someone else will pitch in.
