We work alongside local communities to promote responsible dog ownership in Preston.
We achieve this in a number of ways including:
Below are some examples of the community work carried out by us. If you would like our dog wardens to become involved in your community events please contact us.
Residents of Preston are empowered to help the dog wardens to promote responsible dog ownership and report irresponsible dog owners to us.
For information on becoming a volunteer see Canine Volunteers.
This group connects people together based on their common love for dogs. The PAD group is run by local volunteers and supported by our dog warden service. The dog warden sometimes attends the dog walks, offering advice and guidance to dog owners.
For more information see Preston PAD (Positive About Dogs).
Dog microchipping is compulsory for all dogs over the age of 8 weeks.
We hold many free dog micro-chipping events throughout the year at different locations.
Our dog wardens visit schools to teach children about responsible dog ownership and staying safe around dogs.
We use 'Preston' our teddy bear dog to help get the messages across. We also get the children to participate in competitions and hand out prizes to the lucky winners.
We attend local PACT meetings annually. We will also attend by request to talk to local residents about their concerns.
Only a small percentage of dog owners fail to clean up after their dog, but their actions affect everyone!
