Green Dog Walkers

Here’s an initiative that we also heard about on the BBC Scotland show ‘The Scoop on Poop‘ (audio available until 2/27/12) – the Green Dog Walkers project.

Green Dog Walkers is a friendly, non-confrontational way to change attitudes towards dog fouling. Green Dog Walkers are volunteers who have taken a pledge to always clean up after their dog, and carry extra dog waste bags so they can give a bag to anyone who finds themselves without one.

How do you become a Green Dog Walker?

  • You sign the Green Dog Walkers® Pledge
  • You get a Green Dog Walkers® Armband to wear when you’re out and about with little Frou-frou!

There’s a major publicity effort behind this initiative, so that the public is aware of what it means.

If you see someone wearing a Green Dog Walkers wrist/armband it means they have taken the pledge to:

  • always clean up after their dog
  • carry extra doggie bags
  • gladly give you a poop bag for your dog – just ask.

It’s an interesting idea. Don’t want people beating each other over dog poo. Instead, make it known that you’re a friendly Green Dog Walker, ready to lend a hand (or bag, as it were).
