AVDC has subcontracted SDK Environmental Ltd to provide dog warden patrols.
Covering various locations in the Vale of Aylesbury, the dog warden service includes visits to Haddenham, and the parish council receives written reports of the warden's findings.
Since the start of October 2016, the written reports indicate that a dog warden has been on duty in the village on eleven different occasions and has visited the recreation ground on Woodways, Townsend Green and various village roads.
On most occasions there has been little to report but conversations with dog owners and local walkers have been noted as part of an educational and data gathering process.
If you would like to report concerns over dog fouling, the following information will be useful to the parish council in the escalation of any complaints and enable greater opportunities for action to be taken.
Do you :
* Know of a dog owner who does not pick up after their pet?
* Are the dog(s) usually exercised at a certain time during the day?
* What time(s) are the offences occurring and where?
* Have a description of what the dog(s) look like?
* Have a description of the person walking the dog?
* If the dog owner is using a car, what is the number on the registration plate?
Dog fouling is more effectively tackled when the whole community works together.
The majority of dog owners act responsibly but the few who don't think that they can get away with not picking up after their pet if they believe they cannot be seen. Responsible owners are encouraged to report those who do not take necessary steps to clean up after their animals.
The parish council and AVDC need your help as, if more people come forward to report dog fouling offences, irresponsible dog owners may start to think twice about their actions. So for a cleaner, healthier local environment, please report any fouling incidences.
You can report culprits to the Aylesbury Vale District Council dog warden service on 01296 585605
or Email: email@example.com or a local PCSO.
You may not be aware but if there are no dog bins within the vicinity you can take the waste home and place it in your general household waste bin or alternatively dispose of it in a nearby litter bin.
