October - December 2018 - Responsible dog ownership

The Council will kick off the new Don't Be A Waster campaign in October by focusing on responsible dog ownership.

dbaw oct18The Council’s community officers will be helping parish and town councils tackle the issue, including adding more anti-dog fouling stencils in problem areas. We'll also be visiting schools to talk to local children about the health risks associated with dog fouling and more stickers advising dog walkers that bagged dog waste can go in any litter bin, will be added to bins across the district.

New leaflets will also be available to help residents with various dog issues (including tips to reduce barking), and will feature the competition winner from the previous campaign. Having beaten off competition from over thirty other pooches, it was Jeff the Labrador who became our Furry Face of Ryedale. Well done, Jeff!

The Council once again teamed up with Dogs Trust to host community events in the district to promote responsible dog ownership. The events took place at Dalby Forest, Malton and Norton-on-Derwent.

The Council will be launching a new competition for local primary school children to highlight responsible dog ownership. The Council’s team of Community Officers will be visiting local primary schools to talk about the issue and have invited children submit their short stories, drawings, poems, photos or even videos about being a responsible dog owner.
