Etiquette & Dog Poo


We want our city to be a safe and fun place for all dogs and their guardians. Please be respectful of the local bylaws (dogs on leads on public footpaths next to the road, for example) and be mindful and responsible for how your dog behaves around people and other dogs. The impact of not being responsible for your dog’s behaviour can have a very bad effect on some people and other dogs.

Dogs in training or ‘on duty’ (eg guide dogs and other assistance dogs) should not be petted or distracted whilst working.


Dog Poo

Always a sticky subject! Poo is a non-dog owners’ favourite criticism and bugbear of the majority of responsible dog owners who do “Bag and Bin”.

Brighton Dogwatch asks all dog owners to clear up dog poo wherever it is left. On streets, paths, woods and fields.
