Dog fouling

Reporting cases of fouling in public places

You can report incidents of dog fouling within West Berkshire and Wokingham Borough areas using our online form. For Bracknell Forest area, please click here

We use the information in your report to help to make sure that dog owners and dog walkers clean up after their dogs if they foul in public areas.

What happens next?

It can be complicated to deal with what might appear to be a simple complaint. Addressing an issue might require a specific approach depending on whether it involves a simple clean up, enforcement action, raising awareness, changes to the way we provide facilities for dog owners, or a combination of all the above. It may even fall under the category of anti-social behaviour where persistent offenders are identified. The action we take depends on a number of factors. If you provide your contact information alongside the report, we may contact you to discuss what we are doing to address your complaint.

Responsible dog ownership

We encourage all dog owners to act responsibly - our Facebook page has tips and information that might help. We are currently putting together new leaflets and these will be published once complete.
