Dog Wardens

Dog Warden aims and responsibilities

The Dog Warden Team

Lost and stray dogs can be a danger to themselves and others. Whilst most dog owners love and care for their animals those that do not meet their obligations can cause real problems. To address these concerns the Council's have dedicated Dog Wardens whose responsibilities include:

  • Dealing with stray dogs
  • Investigating dog related complaints
  • Giving advice and information
  • Enforcement of laws relating to dog fouling; dogs on leads and dog identification discs
  • Regular patrolling of parks, streets and other open spaces within Adur and Worthing
  • Educational activities such as an annual road show, presentations to schools and other organisations
  • Micro Chipping for just £15.00 a dog

Their aims are:

  • to provide a service to enforce the various bylaws and other legislation for the control of dogs
  • to educate and inform the public of the content of this legislation
  • to give general advice on dog related issues
  • to promote responsible pet ownership
