Dog Fouling

Dog fouling is offensive and unhealthy. Not only is it a nuisance causing soiled shoes and clothing, but it can also cause serious diseases caused by the roundworm Toxocara.
It is an offence under the Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996 not to clean up after your dog if it fouls. If you are caught you will receive a fixed penalty notice of £75, which if not paid, could result in possible prosecution where the maximum penalty then is £1000.
It is the responsibility of ALL of us to challenge any dog owner that we see in the street not cleaning up after their dog
When your dog has done its business…
Do yours!
Pick up after your dog.
