You must contact the local Dog Warden or if it's 'Out of Hours' contact the 'designated person or kennel' and if necessary take the dog to them - all the information is in the new laws that were passed a couple of years ago and came into force officially on 1st April 2008.
Currently the local Dog Warden contact (Mon to Thurs 9am to 5pm & Fri 9am to 4pm) is: 01444 477041
Currently the local Out of hoursDuty Office contact (Mon to Thurs 5pm to 9am & Fri 4pm to 9am, plus bank holidays) is: 01444 446495
