Dog fouling order

The Fouling of Land by Dogs (Warwick District Council) Order 2011 requires owners to remove faeces deposited by their dog from any land to which the public have access in Warwick district and which is open to the air (including land which is covered but open to the air on at least one side).

Persons contravening the Order may be prosecuted through the courts, (the maximum fine £1,000) or given a fixed penalty charge. 

Report dog fouling or pay a dog fouling charge.

Bag it and bin it!

You must always clean up after your dog, not just after fouling has been pointed out to you. Being unaware that your dog has fouled, or having no 'poop scoop' or bag to pick it up with are not reasonable excuses for not picking up the mess. 

The only exception to the law is for dogs in the charge of people who are registered as being blind.
