Green Dog Walker

The Green Dog Walkers scheme is a positive and pro-active way to encourage and support responsible dog ownership in Dún Laoghaire Rathdown.  It aims to increase awareness of the problem of dog fouling which is among the most common and anti-social forms of littering.


When you sign up to the scheme, we will send you a complimentary green dog walker "doggie bone" poop bag dispenser with a roll of bags.


By signing up you have "Taken the Pledge" to always clean up after your dog, to carry extra doggie bags and to gladly give others a bag for their dog if they ask for one.  By using the green doggie bone you are signalling that you are a responsible dog owner participating in and supporting the scheme.


So please join the scheme and take the Green Dog Walkers pledge. Together we can reduce the incidence of dog fouling in our community.


Dog Walkers can take the pledge by completing the form in Related Documents and returning it to Litter Section, Infrastructure and Climate Change Department, County Hall, Marine Road, Dun Laoghaire.


Please contact us for more information by email or phone on 01-2054700.


Scally the Dog


Dog owners everywhere know they need to pick up after their dogs, but the issue of dog fouling is still one that plagues our County.

To highlight the issue of dog fouling Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council has developed a new campaign to remind dog owners to pick up after their pup wherever they are.

The campaign features the adorable “Scally” the dog in a series of videos which highlight the consequences of not picking up the poop. Whether under the cover of darkness, in a field or on the beach remember “Your dog’s poop could end up anywhere! Always Pick it up!”

We care about your feedback. Have your say.
