Dog fouling

If you allow your dog to foul, you must clean it up or scoop the poop straight away.

There are around 850 litter bins in South Lakeland that can also be used for dog waste.

If you fail to clean up after your dog you could be liable for an initial fixed penalty of £75. Persistent offenders will be taken to court and face a fine of up to £1000.
