Calderdale Council are committed to promoting responsible dog ownership and reducing the problems caused by dogs. Unfortunately there are still some dog owners who act irresponsibly and do not clean up after their dog.
You can assist them by reporting offenders to Environmental Health by going online – this is the quickest and easiest way to inform the Council of issues. They can take action in relation to complaints about dog fouling if you know who the person is who is not cleaning up after their dog has fouled, or you know the approximate time (to within a couple of hours) the fouling occurs.
Even if you do not know any of the above, but your area is badly fouled, let us know and we will endeavour to undertake patrols and also clean up the worst affected areas.
- You can help by providing as much of the following information as possible:
- Accurate location, is there a near by landmark, lamp column or house number?
- Frequency and time, how regular and at what time does it occur?
- Description of the dog
- Address and description of the person walking the dog
