The Big Scoop

A big thank you to all the schools who took part in "The Big Scoop!"

 Earlier this year we held The Big Scoop. our annual campaign to raise awareness on the importance of cleaning up after our dogs. Although you may well be thinking that this aspect is one of the less glamorous components of owning a dog, the education team developed a unique tool kit that includes fun activities, workshops and art projects that all propagate our message; “Scoop the Poop.” Don't worry if you missed our 2020 Big Scoop toolkit, we will be running our Big Scoop week again in 2021!

Unfortunately, stepping in dog poop is something most of us have experienced, and sadly, when this happens the blame tends to fall on the dog, but here at Dogs Trust, we know that it is the owner, not the dog who is responsible.

Our Big Scoop campaign highlighted the various reasons why "scooping the poop" is important via fun, interactive activities suitable for primary school children of all ages.

Remember, children should not be walking their dog without a grown up present. It's the job of the adult to pick up after their dog, and it is the child’s job to remind the adult (not strangers) of importance of being a responsible dog owner.

Happy Scooping!
