Cleaning up after your dog

 Cleaning Up After Your Dog © H.Wood

Owning a dog brings a great deal of enjoyment but also carries with it many responsibilities. If owners are not aware of these responsibilities then communities can grow to dislike the dogs in their areas and anti-dog attitudes can develop.

  • Owners will be prosecuted if they allow their dog to foul and do not clear up in designated areas (Dog Fouling of the Land Act 1996).
  • Cleaning up after your dog is one of the key areas of responsibilities for dog owners, especially when in public spaces. You can face considerable fines if you do not.
  • Carry poop scoop bags with you at all times. Simply keep a plastic bag in your pocket when out walking

Reduce complaints about dogs and their owners in your local community by keeping public spaces foul free.
