Dogs

DogEvery dog owner has a responsibility to ensure that their pet does not cause a nuisance to others.  This means that as a dog owner, you must comply with certain laws which are in place to ensure that people and dogs can live happily and safely together in the community.

The Dog Warden Service deals with matters relating to dog ownership. This includes providing advice and assistance, as well as enforcing various laws which relate to the keeping of dogs.

Due to unfortunate circumstances all stray dogs are currently being taken to St Giles Kennels in Wrantage, nr Taunton. We are looking into arrangements for the West Somerset area and will update this page as soon as arrangements have been confirmed.
