Dogs Trust works closely with Local Authorities in urging all dog owners to act responsibly by picking up after their dogs and reduce the chances of people coming into contact with dog waste. While the majority of dog owners are responsible and pick up after their pet, a careless few are still giving dogs a bad name.

Many dog owners are unaware that dog waste can be put in normal bins making it much easier to dispose of. Our annual national Big Scoop Week campaign encourages dog owners to ‘Bag it and Bin it’ to keep our streets, parks and beaches clean.
