We are members of the Northumberland County Council’s Green Dog Walker Pledge
Green Dog Walkers is a friendly non-confrontational way to change attitudes towards dog fouling.
Northumberland is a welcoming place to responsible dog walkers whether residents or visitors but not a place that tolerates irresponsible dog owners. The aim of the Green Dog Walker Initiative is to change public attitudes so that it becomes socially unacceptable to fail to clean up after your dog i.e. they should leave only pawprints.
The Green Dog Walker Initiative relies on volunteers for its delivery and uses a non-confrontational ‘keep it friendly’ approach to encourage responsible dog ownership. We ask Green Dog Walkers to talk to other dog walkers, offering free poop bags, distribute GDW leaflets and encourage other dog walkers to also sign up to the green dog walker pledge.
