Dog Fouling

It is an offence for dog owners not to remove any faeces deposited by their dog.

 

The offence is punishable by payment of a fixed penalty fine or by summons under the Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996. 


If you take a dog for a walk and it fouls in a public space it is your responsibility to pick it up. If you fail to pick up after your dog you could be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice of £75 or be prosecuted which could result in a fine of up to £1,000.

Dogs Are Clever

We are aware that there is a minority of owners who still fail to pick up after their dogs. We want your help to encourage owners to be responsible and clean up after their dogs.

 

We all know dogs are clever, for hundreds of years dogs have been used as working animals, trained to carryout a number of tasks including Sheep herding and even sniffer dogs to detect bombs and drugs. But one thing we are yet to be able to train dogs to do is pick up after themselves, so that is where you, the caring owners/dog walkers come in.

 

If you own a dog or are responsible for one then be sure to always:

  • Take bags on your walk
  • Pick up after your dog
  • Dispose of waste in any council litter bin

Dog Bags

Dog waste bags are available to purchase from council receptions and Vale of Glamorgan Libraries. 

 

Cost: £2.00 for 100 bags.

 

We understand that sometimes you can run out of bags on a walk, so don't be shy why not ask a fellow dog walker for a spare bag, or if you see someone without one offer them one to help.
