Dog fouling – penalty for not cleaning up

If a dog fouls in a public place, then by law, the owner or person in charge of the dog at the time must clean up after it

Gwynedd Council officers will fine anyone that doesn't clean up their dog's mess.

Fine: £100, £75 if you pay within 10 days

More information can be found on the dog control orders page.
