Report a stray or dangerous dog

Report a stray dog

If you find a stray dog, you should:

  • look for identification on its collar
  • return it directly to its owner (if possible)

If it is safe to do so, contain the dog. If there is no identification, you should call our dog control service on 03444 828 320 and a dog warden will arrange to collect it. This number is operational 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
