The successful Broadland Top Dog campaign, which promotes responsible dog ownership in the district, is having an winter makeover with a new look and video.
Broadland District Council’s campaign has now encouraged over 1,720 people to pledge to clear up after their pets. The new video features Ruby, a Broadland Top Dog who shows how easy it is for dog owners to act responsibly.
People who sign up receive a special Top Dog ribbon for their dog’s lead, as well as free dog poop bags and information on how to report dog fouling.
As the nights draw in, it’s even more important to clean up after your dog, to avoid nasty surprises whilst out walking! Stickers and posters featuring the new pooches are now up in hot-spot areas to encourage people to lead by example, and local children have made their own pictures with winning designs made into signs.
Cllr John Fisher, Broadland District Council’s portfolio holder for environmental excellence, said:
“Our Top Dog campaign has been successful in raising awareness of responsible dog ownership. We’d like every owner to help keep Broadland clean and tidy, sign up for the campaign, and to report any dog fouling in the area.”
