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 can report dog fouling to us in the following ways:

When you contact us please give us a description of the owner and the dog, which area they were in and at what time. If you are using the online report form you can do this by filling in the details box.
