We're Watching You

Dog fouling is a persistent problem in some communities, and we know, from previous research that some dog owners act irresponsibly when they think they are not being watched.

Striking posters, first used by Keep Britain Tidy, with hard-hitting messages and trademarked ‘glow in the dark’ eyes printed using specialist paint are available to help influence the behaviour of those dog owners who currently don't do the right thing. 

The pilot poster campaign which we conducted in partnership with NFU Scotland, urging dog walkers to clean up after their pets on agricultural land, more than halved the incidence of dog fouling recorded over the duration of the activity.  You can read the report for more detailed analysis.

The ’We're watching you' campaign posters now available to purchase to help combat dog fouling across Scotland. There are two posters which have different messages: one details the fine level, the other highlights that 9 out of 10 dog owners pick up after their pets. There is also a ‘We’re watching you’ toolkit available to download if you wish to run a campaign which audits before and after results.

Currently the minimum order for standard A3 vinyl coated posters is 10 at a cost of £250.  We can also provide you with an individual quotation if you want to brand the design with your own logo.
