Action on Stray Dogs

Residents are being reminded of ways to report stray dogs after a number of incidents of dogs running loose in Enderby and other villages in the District.
Action taken by Blaby District Council has led to a drop in the number of incidents recently but the Council wants to assure the public that each new case will still be thoroughly investigated. 
A dog is classed as a stray if it is unleashed or unsupervised in a public place or private place where it is not permitted to be, whether or not it is wearing an ID tag. Animal Care Services Limited, working on behalf of the Council can collect, kennel and return stray dogs if they have been picked up. Residents can contact them direct on 0116 269 6177 and the service runs from 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday and 10am to 8pm on weekends and Bank Holidays.
If you are aware of a stray dog and have concerns then this should be reported to the Council, actions can be taken including the issuing of enforcement notices and fixed penalty fines. Evidence needed includes the location where the dog was spotted and a photo of the dog, this should be emailed to   
This will allow the Council to try and identify the dog and consider the appropriate action to take with the Police. If you consider the dog to be dangerous then this should be reported to the Police by ringing 101.
