In this section you can find out about the ways we deal with all dog-related issues.
The Council's Dog Warden is able to provide advice on a wide range of dog-related issues, including how to stop you dog from barking, reducing the chance of it straying and legislation.
We are responsible for dealing with all stray dogs found within the borough of Reigate and Banstead and recharges owners for all costs incurred in collecting and keeping your dog safe. Fees and charges together with information on reporting a lost or found dog can be found on the stray dogs page.
Owners who do not clear up after their dogs are committing an offence and placing other people's health at risk. Make sure you aren't one of them. See the dog fouling page for further information.
We are responsible for following up complaints relating to dog attacks on other dogs only. Surrey Police are responsible for all incidents of attacks on people and livestock - please contact them directly; in an emergency dial 999. See the dangerous dogs page for further guidance and advice.
Noise from barking dogs
The sound of dogs barking can be distressing when frequent and excessive. See the barking dogs page for guidance and advice as to how we may be able to help.
Dog control in parks and open spaces
There are some areas within the borough where dogs are excluded and areas where dogs need to be kept on a lead. See the Dog Control Orders page for further information.
All dog breeding establishments must be licensed by the Council.
Animal boarding establishments
All animal boarding establishments (catteries and kennels) must be licensed by the Council.
The council has a duty to look after the welfare of dogs in its care until they are returned to their owner or rehomed elsewhere. The Council's Dog Warden is able to provide advice on wider welfare issues, but the main responsibility lies with the RSCA, see the East Surrey branch (RSPCA website). In an emergency call their Cruelty Line 0300 1234 9999.
