Cllr Trevor Bartlett, DDC Cabinet Member for Environmental Health said: “We are delighted to be able to arrange these events in our communities to raise awareness and promote responsible dog ownership.  We hope as many people as possible will come along to meet the dog wardens and find out more.

“Dog fouling is a key concern for residents and we continue to address this through enforcement and education. Although most people pick up after their pets, a small majority continues to cause problems.  One of our key goals is to tackle this issue, which we are doing in a number of ways, including by helping people report dog fouling and reminding owners to pick up after their pets.”
