This page is about dogs and the role of the council's dog warden.
The council’s Dog Warden is responsible for all dog related enquiries. She works closely with the RSPCA, Animal Welfare Officers, the Police and Animal Sanctuaries and offers sound and friendly advice to those who need it.
Within the borough the Dog Warden is responsible for, and is able to deal with
- lost, stolen and stray dogs
- dog attacks on other animals (attacks on people should be reported to the Police).
- animal welfare
- dog fouling complaints
- general queries relating to dogs
you can contact the Dog Warden by emailing NS@reigate-banstead.gov.uk
In case of emergencies, call the Council's Help Line on 01737 276000 or the Police and they will contact the Dog Warden immediately.
From 2016, every dog owner in England will have to microchip their dog. If you are a resident in Reigate and Banstead, the Dog Warden is able to offer a free chipping service for your dogs for a limited time.
It is a quick, simple and painless procedure that can be done to any dog over 12 weeks. A microchip with a unique number is inserted under the skin on the back of the neck. The owner's details are recorded on a national database and matched to that unique number.
To make an appointment to have your dog microchipped or for more information, please email NS@reigate-banstead.gov.uk. Our dog warden will then arrange a convenient time and date to visit you and your dog. Please note requests for chipping can be made by appointment only.
