Dog Pound

Dog Pound Armagh

The Dog Pound looks after lost or stray dogs. It is our job to keep the dogs safe until their owner contacts us or if necessary, find the dogs a new home. Dog Control Service is part of the Environmental Health Department of the Council, at the Palace Demesne off the Friary Road, Armagh.

The information on this page is pulled from our Facebook Wall.  This is where we will post information about lost or stolen dogs and dogs who need a new home. The pound contains 10 pens, which are block built with galvanised dog runs with fresh water drinking systems. The Council’s Dog Control Service responds to calls from members of the public to collect stray dogs within the Council area and impound them in the Pound, the service is also used to handle owners requests for residents who no longer want the dog (fees apply). To report a lost or stolen dog, call us on 028 3752 9623,  post a message on our Facebook Wall. We can then check if the dog has been picked up by our Dog Warden.

Dog Pound at Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough CouncilWe would like more bins, but the same sample was carried out on the Mall in Armagh a few weeks ago with approximately 12 bins fitted and resulted in 37 incidents of dog foul being found. Some people just are to posh to pick up it seams :(2   ·  3 weeks ago

Suzanne BestPerhaps a few more bins would help!11   ·  3 weeks ago

Lori BairdWe walk our dog there every morning. We clean up after our dog! I notiice the fouling is worse at weekends and when caravans are in the park. The regular walkers we meet all clean up after their dogs. I shall look out for offenders. Who do I call to report? Two bins at the caravan end have disappeared.one burnt out a while back and one disappeared last week.2   ·  3 weeks ago

Aine Mc KennaThe Estate I live in is covered in dog fol, I have a dog myself and some people would give me a strange look for lifting it, I have a wee boy I wouldn’t like him lifting it r walking in it.1   ·  3 weeks ago

Anthea GrayDisgusting. If there’s one sure way of putting folk off visiting Clare Glen, it’s this. Ugh. Let me know when the problem has been resolved. Until then, as far as I’m concerned, it’s a no-go area. Can you imagine trying to keep children out of that??!!4   ·  3 weeks ago

Anne HobsonYes I go there quite a lot and have been appalled how much fouling there is there and at times I have even saw it in the car park !! Yes agreed there is a shortage of bins but still no excuse as it is no big deal having to wait until the end of the walk to dispose of it .Please Borough council install a few more bins here.When I moved to my present house there were no bins at all and all it took was a fone call to council and within just over a week they had installed TWO down each side of the road7   ·  3 weeks ago

Gail DavidsonYou would need to go to craigavon lakes. While on a run round it I seen it happen 3 times and the owners of the dogs were walking ahead of their dogs off lead and ‘ unaware’ of it. Very handy.1   ·  3 weeks ago

Kirsty WildingI used to walk my dogs there all the time but stopped because of the dog poo. I clean up after my dogs I dont expect others to or leave it for someone to walk in. Come on people would it be ok to shit on your door step?1   ·  3 weeks ago

Samantha GreenleeBrilliant news! Thank you. I’ve not been to Claire Glen in years because its filthy… Too many use it as a dog toilet.2   ·  3 weeks ago

Anne TateGlad to hear this, I walk my dog in Clare Glen and pick up after him, but I know some dog owners don’t! It’s like a minefield out there. Just a few idiots spoiling a lovely spot for everyone.1   ·  3 weeks ago

Beverley Edgarin past few years it has been cleaned up a lot esp the non toilet end, used to be you couldnt get through gate without walking on poop,bags dont cost much £1 for 200 in pound shop.3   ·  3 weeks ago

Little MountainGreat idea, hope it works. My dog is like a child to me. I clean up after him much like a mother changes a baby’s nappy. Don’t know why people find the thought of carrying used poo bags so disgusting. Its more disgusting to leave the mess in situ for people walking to negotiate around. #Scoopthepoop1   ·  3 weeks ago

Jill GreerGreat news ☺ love Clare Glen but hate when the kids stand in dog mess!1   ·  3 weeks ago

Ciara MurphyBeautiful spot we often go to. The amount of dog owners who do not pick up is unbelievable. Good news and hope this lovely little spot stays foul free!1   ·  3 weeks ago

Pilot scheme to help cut Dog Fouling, we hope to have this throughout the Borough in the future

A new pilot scheme aimed at tackling the issue of dog fouling has been launched in the Craigavon, Lurgan and Portadown areas of the Borough and Council is calling on volunteers to sign up and make a difference together. The Green Dog Walkers (GDW) scheme encourages dog owners and dog walkers to take a pledge to clean up after their dogs as well as acting as a friendly reminder to other dog walkers to do the same. Volunteers will receive a Doggie Welcome Pack containing the Green Dog Walkers® armband, dog bone shaped bag dispenser, doggie bags and clip on hand sanitizer – click here to find out more about the scheme http://bit.ly/1UreSDT

SHEEP ATTACKS AND SHEEP WORRYING

Sheep attacks and sheep worrying is a major issue for farmers especially during the lambing season (December to May).

Sheep worrying occurs when dogs chase sheep, injure them and/or kill them. Sheep are flight animals i.e. they flee/run when they perceive danger. The above causes economic losses and makes for a difficult working environment for the farmer.

Even though dogs have been domesticated for a long time, they have not lost their basic instincts. These instincts include a strong predatory drive. The chase instinct can be triggered by the sight of or the movement of animals. Thus humans should not be shocked that the family pet dog would chase or attack/worry sheep. If your family pet dog is out of your sight/control for even a short time, i.e.10 minutes at any time of the day, it could become involved in sheep attacks. Any breed of dog if given the opportunity can be involved in a sheep attack/worrying/killing episode.

In this the Lambing Season, extra vigilance is required by dog owners – be you a rural dweller or if you walk your dog in the countryside, give some consideration to sheep farmers and the welfare of their sheep. Any dog including family pets can become involved in a sheep kill if we (humans) give them the opportunity. The Dog owner is liable for any damages arising.

Dogs must be kept under control at all times preferably on a lead. In certain circumstances it is legal for farmers to shoot dogs on sight if they are trespassing their lands. So be warned!

Dog owners are also reminded that your dog must be licensed and micro-chipped. A fixed penalty of £75 can be served for a dog with no license and for a dog straying.
