|Dog control orders||
The Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005 is new legislation that replaces the current Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996 and dog byelaws with a new system of 'Dog Control' Orders.
Letting your dog foul the pavements and parks is not very nice for other people that use them – and at worst can cause blindness from an infection called ‘Toxocariosis’.
|Found and stray dogs||
We have a duty to deal with stray dogs that are becoming a nuisance or a danger on the road.
|Lost dogs||It is important to notify the local authority if your dog is lost.|
|Noisy dogs||It's normal and natural for dogs to bark. But when barking happens a lot, or goes on for a long time, it can be annoying and upsetting for neighbours.|
|Dog training||Dogs need to be exercised daily and walks are much more fun if your dog behaves on the lead and comes back whenever it is called.|
|Your dog and the law||
As a responsible dog owner, it is important for you to meet with the requirements of the law.
