Dog control

Report dog fouling

A dog is out of control if:

  • It is not being kept under control effectively and consistently
  • Its behaviour causes alarm, or fear to any person or animal

If any dog is out of control we have the power to serve a Dog Control Notice.

A dog is dangerously out of control in any public place if it  bites or tries to bite a person or seriously injures or kills another animal. This should be reported immediately to the Police for action under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991.
