4. Report dog fouling

We encourage residents, visitors and those who work in the city to take a zero tolerance approach to irresponsible dog owners who let their pets foul in public areas.

Don't let it happen. Make a note of their details and let us know.

If you know a particular person with a certain breed of dog who visits an area or park at a regular time of day give us the details. We can then assign our enforcement officers to visit at that time.

You will need to let us know the location of the mess, and (optionally) you can give us further information if you are able to.

For example; a description of the owner and/or the dog, which area they were in and at what time.

You can make a report anonymously.

If you know a particular person with a certain breed of dog who visits an area or park at a regular time of day please give us the details. We can then assign our enforcement officers to visit at that time.
