Green Dog Walkers Scheme

Green Dog Walkers Logo

A friendly way to tackle dog fouling issues

The idea is that responsible dog owners sign a pledge to say that they will clear up after their dogs & will carry spare bags with them which they will offer to anyone they see not clearing up. They will wear a very distinct arm band to identify them as a Green Dog Walker. This is a non-confrontational friendly way to approach those who haven't cleared up after their dog.

A friendly reminder...

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

What's the Green Armband for?

If you see someone wearing the Green Dog Walkers armband, it means that they have “Taken the Pledge”

  • to always clean up after their dog
  • to carry extra doggie bags
  • to gladly give you a bag for your dog-just ask

Would you like to take part in the project?

Download and read the Pledge and return the signed Acceptance Form (PDF).

Green Dog Walkers® is an original project initiated by Community Green Initiative of Dunipace in partnership with Falkirk Council
