Paws and Pick It Up

Are you a responsible dog owner? Sign up to our new ‘Paws and pick up pledge’ and your dog could be the (furry) face of our dog fouling campaign.

Responsible dogs owners who back the Council’s Don’t be a Waster campaign can join in and help wipe out dog fouling in the district with a new initiative.

Dog owners who sign up to the pledge promise to:

  • Clean up after your dog
  • Put your dogs’s waste in any litter bin
  • Remind others who walk your dog to clean up after it
  • Encourage friends and other dog walkers to clean up after their dog
  • Carry extra bags to hand out to other dog walkers if they need one, and
  • Never let your dog out unaccompanied.

To sign up email pawsandpickitup@selby.gov.uk with your name and contact details.

All dog owners who sign up to the pledge can reap rewards for their four-legged friends as they’ll  be entered into a competition to win dog goodie bags and a 12g bag of Lifestage dog food, kindly supplied by Jollyes Pet Superstore, Bawtry Road, Selby.

Jollyes have also donated 300 free dog poo bags to the district’s dog owners – these are available by calling into the Access Selby officer in Market Cross, Selby and also from the Regen Centre, Riccall.

Each week we're adding the photos of the dogs entered to our Facebook page - and members of the public can vote for their favourite to go through to the final vote to be the furry face of our dog fouling campaigns. 

To be entered into the competition dog owners should sign up to the pledge by Friday 18 August.
