Dog warden service

Our dog warden service deals with stray dogs, dog attacks, dog fouling and noise nuisance from barking dogs.

The overall aims of the service are to collect stray dogs, deal with dog-related nuisance, and promote responsible dog ownership through education, enforcement and practical means. We do this by:

  • Responding to requests for service and investigating complaints regarding stray dogs, fouling, dogs off leads, dogs in prohibited areas, dog on dog attacks and barking dogs (please note that the police deal with dog attacks on humans)
  • Enforcing appropriate legislation, by targeting problem areas
  • Promoting good dog ownership by developing local initiatives and taking opportunities to involve schools and attend suitable events, when resources are available

We regret that the dog warden service cannot help with requests for stray cats or other animals.
