Dog fouling

Dog fouling and the law

If you allow a dog in your charge to foul any area to which the public has access you are committing an offence. The penalty for not clearing up dog fouling can be up to £1000 if the case is dealt with by the magistrates courts, or £50 if the owner is given a fixed penalty notice.

Town councils or parish councils provide bins in parks and other public areas for the use of dog owners. We are responsible for monitoring dog fouling, the issue of fixed penalty notices and for initiating court proceedings against offenders.

Report dog fouling

Our dog warden will investigate any fouling allegations within the district and aims to respond to the complainant within two working days.
