The Green Dog Walker Campaign

The Green Dog Walkers Responsible Dog Ownership Campaign

On the 3rd July 2017 Northumberland County Council will be launching a new Campaign to promote responsible dog ownership in Northumberland. At the core of the campaign is the Green Dog Walker Initiative that encourages both local environmental groups and motivated individuals to sign up to the Green Dog Walker pledge.

The Campaign focuses on the issues of dog fouling (being a Green Dog Walker) together with dog control and public safety. Dog fouling can have a significant impact on our environment and presents a serious public health risk.

The Campaign will seek to promote Northumberland as a welcoming place to responsible dog walkers whether residents or visitors but also emphasise that Northumberland is not a place that tolerates irresponsible dog owners.

Information about the campaign and an online Green Dog Walker pledge form can, from the 3rd July, be found at
