There has been an increase in the amount of dog fouling in and around the footpaths in Felthorpe.
The Parish Council together with Broadland District Council have launched a campaign to help stop dog fouling on the footpaths:
BROADLAND TOP DOG – Show you’re a responsible dog owner by signing up to Top Dog and leading by example, Broadland Top Dog is calling on responsible dog owners to lead the way and help us to encourage every dog owner to clear up after their pet. Sign up to the campaign and receive a pack containing a ribbon for your pet’s lead or collar, some dog poop bags and information on how to report those failing to clear up after their pet. The ribbon is clearly visible and sends out a message to all those who let their dog foul and fail to clear up that they are in the minority and could be being watched – the more ribbons out there, the stronger the message to those fouling the footpaths. Responsible dog owners could also be in for a treat this year as we will be issuing small “On the spot rewards” to those responsible owners seen out with the Top Dog ribbon on display, or clearing up after their pet. These pack are available at the Telephone kiosk situated in The Street in front of the village well.
