Bag it and bin it!

Dog owners are asked to bag and bin their dogs' waste to keep the village clean.  Dog mess poses serious health risks. It can carry roundworm - containing the parasite Toxocara canis which can cause blindness, epilepsy, asthma and infections.  So it's vital to reduce dog fouling to protect others, particularly children.  Failing to clean up after your four legged friend when in a public space is an offence.

If your're walking your dog please take a doggy bag, pick up after your dog and use the dog waste bins provided around the village.

If you are aware of the address of any dog owner who does not clean up after their dog, please email dog.fouling@dacorum.gov.uk with the relevant details.
