Officers from Glasgow City Council and Glasgow Community and Safety Services are employing new tactics to crack down on irresponsible owners who refuse to clean up after their pets.
As well as continuing to issue fixed penalty notices to those caught in the act, teams will, for the first time, use CCTV and witness statements to issue them retrospectively.
Dog wardens will uplift animals that are stray or not under proper control.
And Clean Glasgow will work with landlords, where possible – and use antisocial behaviour legislation where it is not – to tackle persistent offenders.
Ultimately, this may mean going to court to remove an animal permanently, if offenders do not respond to other sanctions.
Teams will tackle hotspots identified by communities.
Report dog fouling and identify owners who do not clean up after their dogs to Clean Glasgow on 0800 027 7027
