The Green Dog Walker environmental awareness programme is getting a boost with the introduction of Talking Lamp Posts in Dun Laoghaire Rathdown. 

The lamp posts will communicate a message about responsible dog ownership when it detects a person nearby.

The Green Dog Walkers initiative has been in operation for some time and was put in place to remind dog owners of the need to keep our parks and walks clean and safe for everyone.

The Dog Pooh video from 'Environment the Musical'  created by Annette McNelis was part of the DLR Responsible Dog Owners 2017 radio campaign captures the inconvenience of finding yourself with Pooh on your Shoe!

Take the Green Dog Walker pledge and pledge to:

  • clean up after your 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 pet.
Dog owners who register for the pledge will receive a complimentary 'doggie bone' bag dispenser, a roll of bags along with an information leaflet from the Council. 

All you have to do is download the Green Dog Walkers Form on the right of your screen and return it to the Council. The scheme is also available to local residents’ associations, community groups and Tidy Towns/Tidy Districts committees.

The initial temporary locations for the devices are Ballyogan, Marlay Park, Killiney Hill, Glenageary and Seapoint, but they will be rotated throughout the County over the year.

For further details on becoming a Green Dog Walker, please contact Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council. 


Phone:  01 – 2054700

So please join the scheme and take the Green Dog Walkers pledge.

Together we can reduce the incidence of dog fouling in our community.
