Dog fouling penalty tickets

Most areas of Dorset have dog fouling orders or are in the process of making them. Each authority will have followed the procedure and guidance written under the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005 to produce orders including appropriate consultation. These orders enable authorised officers to serve Fixed Penalty Notices to any person responsible for a dog that fouls and does not clean up any mess left by the dog on the designated land.

Owners can also be prosecuted in the magistrates court where a fine of up to £1,000 can be imposed.
