In Watford it is an offence for a person responsible for a dog not to clean up immediately if the dog has fouled on public land.
Report dog fouling
To tell us about dog fouling on pavements for cleaning, please use our online report a street cleaning issue form.
You will be asked to provide the date, time, location, description of the dog and the dog owner if known.
Watford Borough Council will carry out patrols and investigate hot spot areas.
What you can do
- Always carry bags when you take your dog out so that you can clear up after your dog.
- If you are caught not clearing up your dog's waste, you may be issued with a fixed penalty notice or even prosecuted, which can result in a fine of up to £1000.
- Download one of our "yuk!" posters and display it at your property.
