What do I do about reporting dog fouling?


Under the Dogs Fouling of Land Act (1996) it is an offence to allow your dog to foul the footpath or highway. Dog Wardens can issue an owner or person in charge of a dog a fixed penalty ticket (£50 fine). Failure to pay fines can incur a further penalty of up to £1,000.
