a problem with dog fouling
The majority of dog owners behave responsibly and clean up after
their dogs. However, a small minority fail to clean up. This
is an offence and we can issue an £80 fixed penalty notice to a dog
walker or owner who fails to pick up after their dog has fouled.
This can increase to a maximum fine of £1,000 for those who
persistently fail to clean up.
Bag it up
- You can pick up free dog bags at contact points, libraries and community
- Always carry the means to clean up after your dog immediately,
and dispose of it in a dog waste bin or a rubbish bin if a dog
waste bin is not available
- Respect dog-free areas
- Speak to a vet about worming your dog regularly
