Clean up after your dog

Carry a waste bag for picking up your dog's faeces and dispose of it in a rubbish bin.

You can buy biodegradable dog waste bags from supermarkets and pet stores.

​Under the Dog Management Bylaw 2019, you must immediately remove your dog's faeces from a public place and dispose of it adequately.

If you do not pick up after your dog, you may get a $300 fine.
