snip-dog-pooKeep Scotland Beautiful published a report entitled Tackling Dog Fouling back in December. The report summarised the outcomes of the first national stakeholder event on dog fouling back in September. The second stakeholder event was held earlier this week.

Local environmental quality is of huge importance to communities – evidence from research shows it is consistently one of the most important issues to people across Scotland.  The research also shows that communities across Scotland, both urban and rural, are blighted by the problem of irresponsible dog ownership and dog fouling – and it is a problem that is getting worse.

This is the start of a journey to tackle Scotland’s dog fouling problem; to create a National Action Plan on Dog Fouling, to improve local environments across Scotland, and build clean, safe and healthy communities.
