If you see someone not cleaning up their dog's poo in public, report this to us online.
Dog fouling is widely considered to be the most offensive type of litter on our streets and green spaces. It can also be dangerous to human health, especially to children, the elderly and those with underlying health conditions.
It is the responsibility of the person in charge of the dog at the time the fouling occurs to pick up the poo, which is not always the dog owner. Not having a bag, nor being aware that the dog has fouled is not acceptable.
What we can do
We can investigate incidences of fouling where the following applies:
- It has been witnessed by someone who is willing to provide their details
- Alleged perpetrator can be identified
- Person reporting the incident is willing to provide a witness statement and attend court (if required)
