Nuisance from Pets
If your neighbours have pets that are causing a nuisance they may be unaware, so it would be helpful if firstly you discuss the issue with your neighbour. If the problem continues then you should report the problem to your local Council and let us know too.
Dog Fouling and Stray Dogs
If you are having problems with dogs in your neighbourhood, you should report this to us. You’ll need to provide as much information as possible about the dog, its owner and their address to help with our investigation. We also advise you to contact your Local Authority Dog Warden. They have powers to issue on the spot fines to owners whose dogs are caught fouling, and the Dog Wardens work with us to tackle the issues together. Dog Wardens can also collect stray dogs.
If you believe a neighbour has a dog which is a banned breed, you should contact the Police on their non emergency number: 101.
Animals being Mistreated
If you think an animal is being mistreated by its owner, you should contact the RSPCA.
