Dog fouling

Authorised officers carry out dog fouling patrols and will issue dog fouling fixed penalty notices to anyone found not picking up after their dog has fouled.

Report dog fouling

Currently, the best way to report dog owners who are not picking up is through the Customer Service Hub on 0345 143 0015.

When reporting a dog fouling problem, in order to help us to target dog fouling patrols more effectively, please provide the following information:

  • Where and when the fouling is happening (please be as specific as possible)
  • The dog owner's name and address (if you know it)
  • What the dog looks like, including its breed and colour
  • Your own contact details

We will carry out dog fouling patrols routinely in areas that are identified as hotspots.

These hotspot areas will be identified from reports of dog fouling that we receive.

Dog fouling bags

Dog owners can pick up free dog fouling bags from any council library, housing office or First Stop Shop.
