Dog Fouling

Dog Fouling

1st of August, 2023

Dog mess is probably the most unacceptable and offensive type of litter on our streets. It is not only deeply unpleasant, it can cause toxocariasis - a nasty infection that can lead to dizziness, nausea, asthma and in very rare cases blindness.

Preston City Council are responsibile for clearing up dog mess and they also have powers to issue Fixed Penalty Notices to offenders - however you MUST report the offence to the City Council using this link

Report a dog fouling problem

Try to make a note of the following, so that they can identify and take action against offenders:

location (please be as accurate as possible)
what you witnessed
description of the dog owner
description of dog

If there is insufficient information to investigate your report then the Council's Neighbourhood Services team will attempt to carry out a clean up only.
