Dog fouling

If your dog fouls in a public area, the mess needs to be picked up and disposed of in a dog or public litter bin. If there is no dog bin available it can be taken home and put into your black wheelie bin. Dog fouling can be a risk to health.

If it isn't picked up, we can issue a fine and we take offenders to court.

Report it

If you witness someone letting their dog foul without cleaning it up afterwards, you should report it. Please note the:

  • dates and times
  • frequency it happens
  • description of the dog
  • details of the offender

You can also let us know if there are ongoing issues with dog fouling in your area. We may be able to put up warning signs or monitor the area more.

Report it by selecting your local area:

If your area isn't listed, you may be a resident of West Northamptonshire.
