What Law Applies to Dog Fouling?

In Oadby and Wigston it is the Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996. This makes dog fouling an offence unless the person in charge of the dog clears up immediately.

There is an exception for registered blind people who are in charge of a guide dog.

Anyone who does not clear up may be liable to a fixed penalty fine, currently set at £50.00.
