Green Dog Walkers is a regional programme involving most of the Councils’ in the Leinster area. It is a non-confrontational, friendly way to change attitudes about dog fouling. Green Dog Walkers is a community based scheme that volunteers in the community can adopt in their own area and promote.
Volunteers wear a Green Dog Walkers armband which signifies that they have “taken the pledge” to always:
- clean up after their dog
- wear the armband or put the Green Dog Walkers collar on their dog when walking
- carry extra dog waste bags
- be happy to be approached to ‘lend’ a dog waste bag to those without
- be a friendly reminder to other dog walkers to clean up after their dogs
The green arm band acts as a friendly reminder to please pick up after your dog. All you have to do is sign the Green Dog Walkers Pledge , and return by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or post to the Environment Department, Fingal County Council, County Hall, Swords, Co. Dublin. A Green Dog Walker armband and a bone dog bag dispenser will then be posted to you.
