Whittlesey, and the surrounding countryside, is a beautiful place for residents and visitors to walk their dogs.We are tying to help keep it this way by starting the Whittlesey Green Dog Walking Scheme.
We are asking all dog walkers to support our scheme, which is free to join, and is part of a national community-led programme aimed at helping to reduce dog fouling and encourage responsible dog ownership.Please try to encourage your friends and neighbours to join too!
What is Green Dog Walkers®?
Green Dog Walkers® is a scheme adopted by over 40 councils across the country. We 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. We know that fines and legislation are not an effective solution to the problem,.
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. By acting responsibly you can show the minority who let everyone in our community down the right way to deal with dog fouling.
In return for signing our Pledge, you will receive one of our Whittlesey Green Dog Walker dog tags to display on your dog’s lead or collar and a roll of doggie bags as a thank you for helping to make our campaign a success.
Whittlesey Green Dog Walkers are the role models for responsible dog ownership and the green tag will be a way of showing everyone that you have taken the pledge and that you are a responible dog owner.
