Dog Control Orders

Southend has implemented local dog control orders to promote responsible dog ownership

It is an offence for any person to:

  • fail to remove their dogs faeces
  • not keep their dog on a lead in certain areas
  • not putting (and keeping) their dog on a lead when asked to do so by an council officer
  • Allowing a dog to enter land from which dogs are excluded
  • taking too many dogs onto land

Fixed Penalty Notices

We can issue Fixed Penalty Notices to enforce the dog control orders.
