Leave Only Pawprints campaign

Leave Only Pawprints is a non-confrontational, friendly way to change attitudes and behaviours around dog fouling.
Dog owners and their dogs can become local Champions, signing the pledge, and can be recognised by wearing small ‘Leave Only Pawprint’ badges.

Champions carry extra bags so if another dog owner doesn’t have one, they can lend a hand by sharing a bag.
Love Where You Live will provide everything you need to be a Champion.

All Champions will be sent a Leave Only Pawprints Champion pack.

Don’t forget you can report instances of dog fouling via the Cardiff Council App.

The Leave Only Pawprints Pledge

  1. I will always clean up after my dog and dispose of the bag appropriately.
  2. Myself and my dog will wear our Champion badges when possible to show others we are Champions.
  3. I will carry extra bags that I will give to people if needed.
  4. Whilst being a Champion I will not confront other dog walkers about dog fouling. I understand that the ‘Leave Only Pawprints’ campaign is non-confrontational and is a friendly reminder to other dog walkers to change attitudes and behaviour.
  5. I agree to take part in campaign surveys by Cardiff Council.
  6. I agree to receive occasional updates about Leave Only Pawprints, but know I can unsubscribe at any time.
