Dog fouling

If a dog fouls on public land, it is the responsibility of the person in charge of the dog to pick up the mess.

We will investigate any complaints about dog fouling. Patrols are carried out in problem areas and offenders will be prosecuted.

Often dog fouling is caused by people not watching their dog and not realising that it has fouled. If you own a dog, you are responsible for it, whether it's on or off the lead. Be aware of where your dog is and what it's doing at all times.
