About the campaign

2. Responsible dog owners pledge

As part of our We Love Stockport – Be Proud of Where You Live initiative we are looking for responsible dog owners to take a pledge to:

  • taking my We Love Stockport poo bag holder out as much as possible when walking my dog(s)
  • always clean up after my dog and dispose of the bag in a bin
  • encouraging others who walk my dog to clean up after my dog
  • using the We Love Stockport poo bag holder to distribute poo bags to others dog walkers if asked
  • help to change the attitudes about dog fouling to other dog owners in a friendly and non-confrontational manner
  • ensure my dog is kept away from enclosed children’s play areas and enclosed sports areas
  • keep my dog on a lead in cemeteries and around bowling greens
  • putting my dog on a lead if requested to do so by an authorised officer
  • ensure I am in control of no more than four dogs in parks and public areas

If you would like to become a We Love Stockport Champion all you need to do is to agree to the pledge and email us at district.standards@stockport.gov.uk with details and we will send you your We Love Stockport poo bag holder which will clearly identify you as a responsible dog owner.
