Green Dog Walkers

Green Dog Walkers is a friendly, non-confrontational way to change attitudes towards dog fouling.

Green Dog Walkers in County Durham

The majority of dog owners in our county are responsible and pick up after their pets. Green Dog Walkers was developed to give responsible dog walkers an identity, increase the availability of dog poop bags and act as a silent reminder to irresponsible dog owners that they need to pick up after their dog has fouled.

Green Dog Walkers Pledge

The Green Dog Walkers campaign was the idea of a local community group (Community Green Initiative) from Denny and Dunipace in Scotland who approached Falkirk Council for advice and support to help develop their idea. 

Green Dog Walkers sign a pledge to:

  • always clean up after their dog
  • carry extra dog bags to give to other dog walkers who don't have one handy

Those who have taken the pledge are recognisable by the Green Dog Walkers logo worn in the form of a badge.
