Dog fouling signs.
Dog fouling prohibition signs.
Our dog fouling signs remind dog owners of their legal obligation to clean up after their dog in public places. Dog fouling is unsightly and hazardous to health.
In accordance with the recommendations of The Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005, our safety signs assist councils and neighbourhood groups to uphold the law and maintain a clean environment.
Local councils can issue fixed penalty orders to dog owners. The fixed penalty is usually £50 – 80. These fines can be conveyed on the dog fouling prohibition signs.
In serious cases, magistrates can issue a maximum penalty of £1,000 which can also be displayed on the prohibition signs.
Registered blind people are not required to clean up after their guide dogs. There is also exemption for dog owners on some kinds of public land in England and Wales, including agricultural land or woodland, rural common land, marshland or highways with a speed limit of over 50mph.
