Green Dog Walkers® is an original scheme adopted by over 40 councils across the country. Chichester District Council have joined this scheme as it offers a proven, non-confrontational and friendly way to change attitudes about dog fouling and encourages responsible dog ownership.
Most importantly, the Green Dog Walkers® scheme acts as a reminder to others that they need to pick up after their dog has fouled and keep them under control.
Green Dog Walkers® sign a pledge to:
always clean up after their dog;
dispose of the bag responsibly;
carry extra dog waste bags;
gladly give a bag to those without one; and
be a friendly reminder to other dog walkers to clean up after their dogs.
In return, they receive one of our enamel Green Dog Walkers® badges to display on their coat or dog lead, a car window sticker and a leaflet about our campaign.
Green Dog Walkers® are role models for responsible dog ownership. As well as ensuring that they clean up after their dogs, they:
ensure their dog is microchipped;
keep their dog under control at all times; and,
stay safe around farm animals and ground nesting birds.
