About the service
Bassetlaw District Council has a dedicated Dog Warden who regularly patrols the district picking up reported stray dogs.
The warden works alongside Nottinghamshire Police and the RSPCA to promote responsible dog ownership.
Other dog warden roles include working to reduce the amount of dog fouling across Bassetlaw by working with local residents, parish councils and schools. They also places dog fouling signs, arranges leaflet drops in areas and can carry out surveillance.
