Dog control orders
We can serve fixed penalty notices to people who break dog control orders in the Birmingham area without a valid reason. These orders make it an offence for a dog owner (or anyone in charge of dog) to:
- not remove their dog's waste
- not keep their dogs on a lead on roads, footways and verges
- not keep their dogs away from children’s play areas or school land
- not place their dogs on a lead when asked to by a council officer
- take more than 4 dogs at a time onto any public land
Failure to respond to a fixed penalty notice can result in prosecution.
If you would like to report a dog owner breaking any of the above control orders, please use the online form and select the most appropriate option to describe the breach.
