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. You can read more with our Green Dog Walker Leaflet or Green Dog Walker Leaflet Irish Version .
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 [email protected] 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.
