Rowen welcomes dogs and responsible dog owners.
Most dog owners pick up after their dogs. Some don’t, and they give the responsible dog owners a bad name.

Bags of dog waste can be left in any of the black metal Conwy litter bins in Rowen, and in the red bin by the footbridge.

It is an offence to allow a dog to foul any street with street lighting, at any time of day or night.

Dog fouling hotspots in Rowen
1.  Public footpath from the Shirley Footbridge to Glascoed Farm.
Please use the red dog waste bin near the footbridge.
2.   The lane and public footpath from the phone box to Cefn Cae Farm.  Please use the black bin near the Ty Gwyn.   Dog fouling on this footpath is a continuous cause of distress to the farmer and their family.

Dumping bags of dog waste on footpaths or in hedges is highly offensive to other users, and to the landowners.  Please use the bins provided.
