Dog warden service

Our dog warden service encourages and monitors responsible dog ownership throughout the district. We do this by:

  • enforcing the legislation on dog-fouling
  • provision and emptying of dog bins throughout the district
  • dealing with stray dogs
  • provide expert advice on how to make sure that your pet does not cause a nuisance
  • provide a free dog registration scheme which provides a unique identity tag for your pet. Replacement tags can be obtained by either submitting a new request or by purchasing a metal replacement tag from a local pet shop and having it engraved with your pets current ID number and the council phone number. 
  • dangerous dogs - information and reporting
  • investigating barking dog complaints
