Green Dog Walkers

Green Dog Walkers encourages dog owners to clean up after their animals and is a non-confrontational, friendly way to change dog owner behaviour in relation to dog litter.
Green Dog Walkers Logo

Volunteers lead by example and wear a Green Dog Walkers hi-vis vest with "leave only pawprints" on the back. By wearing the vest, dog owners are showing they have 'taken the pledge' to always clean up after their dog, carry extra dog waste bags, be happy to be approached to 'lend' a dog waste bag to those without, and be a friendly reminder to other dog walkers to clean up after their dogs.

Pledge to be a Green Dog Walker and receive your pack

You can request a Green Dog Walker by emailing

We will send you a Green Dog Walker pack in the post. It contains:

  • A complimentary Green Dog-Walkers high-vis vest
  • Green Dog-Walkers 'doggie bone' poop-bag dispenser with a roll of bags

The majority of people walking dogs in public spaces are conscientious about picking up dog litter, and can help get the message out to others by leading by example.

Get involved

We are particularly interested in working with community groups, Tidy Towns committees and volunteers. Please contact us to see how you can become involved.
