Dogs and dog fouling
Tenants need written permission from us to have a pet - check your tenancy agreement for more information.
There are four types of dog that people in the UK are not allowed to keep as pets:
- Pit bull terrier
- Japanese tosa
- Dogo argentino
- Fila brasileiro.
If dog mess is a regular problem in your neighbourhood, report it:
- Contact us and your local council if the dog's owner is an NCHA resident
- Contact your local council if the dog's owner lives in a property we don't manage.
When we get a report about persistent dog mess, we can send out a letter to tenants in the area reminding them to pick up after their pets. We can also arrange a visit to talk to the owner. Our service standards explain what you can expect from us.
