Dog barking / noise

Dogs bark. There are a multitude of reasons why a dog might bark depending on the situation and context.

Dog fouling

Following the launch of a new borough-wide dog fouling campaign, we encourage you to download the following posters and display them on your local noticeboards and in other prominent locations.

Our posters aim to highlight the dangers of dog fouling for young children. Toxocariasis is an infection caused by roundworm commonly found in dog mess and can easily be picked up by young children. The serious symptoms of toxocariasis include asthma, stomach upsets, headaches, breathing difficulties and in some cases, blindness. Roundworm eggs can stay alive in soil for many years - long after any dog mess has disappeared.
