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.
