Vet calls for dogs to
undergo DNA testing
Dr Archinal said appropriate fencing
and keeping the animal muzzled would
not solve the problem of attacks.
He believes banning a specific breed
is the answer, but it has to be done
through DNA testing.
He says there are inappropriate
breeds to have as pets, including pit
Dr Archinal believes people who
own aggressive breeds need to enroll
them in puppy preschool to socialise
them at a young age and ensure they
receive plenty of training.
He said owners played a big part in
how the animal was brought up.
Currently in NSW an owner of a
dangerous or restricted dog that attacks
or bites a person faces a $55,000 fine
and two years maximum imprisonment.
The animal may also be destroyed as a

CIC Australia project director
Mark Attiwill said the award had
come at the right time, as construc-
tion for the first stage of the
development was anticipated to
begin early next year.
He said the vision for Googong as
being an innovative township with a
sustainable way of living, had been
recognised by the judges.
"It was recognised as a real town,
not a subdivision or a suburb," Mr
Attiwill said. "Because of its
size ... the five connected neigh-
bourhoods, and the neighbourhood
and town centre hubs, together with
sustainability and some environ-
mental approaches, that holistic
approach to township creation was a
key element in the judge's decision."
The award recognises concept
designs and plans where construction
has not commenced and celebrates
the highest levels of achievement in
innovation, sustainability and indus-
try leadership in the urban develop-
The township went head-to-head
with some of the state's largest
projects and developers to take the
title, beating industry luminaries
including Australand and Stockland,
as well as a major project from
Wyong Shire Council.
Mr Attiwill said buyers or future
residents of Googong now had peace
of mind that the town had been
planned to the highest standard.
"They know the community facili-
ties such as the indoor sports and
aquatic centre, the recreation facili-
ties such as the sports fields and the
parks, the two primary and secon-
dary schools and the shops and
employment opportunities will be
available early and as the town
grows," he said.
The township will be built on 780
hectares of land and will house about
It will boast an electric car
network, with infrastructure through-
out the township and all homes, to be
wired and ready.
There will also be an integrated
water cycle management system,
including a water treatment and
recycling plant, which aims to reduce
potable water use by about
60 per cent and also recycle over half
of Googong's waste water.
The first staged release of land
will start later this year. For further
