Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Dog owners are obliged to immediately remove the contamination caused by the dog on roads, paths and public places and to dispose of it properly.
In order to make it easier for dog owners to comply with this obligation, many municipalities and cities have set up containers from which bags can be removed free of charge to remove the dogs' excrement.


Who should I contact?

If the containers no longer contain bags, please contact your municipal, official or city administration.

Legal basis

§ 3 para. 7 Law on the Keeping of Dogs (HundeG)

What else should I know?

In cases where the law is violated, law enforcement officers of the competent regulatory authority are permitted to ask the person leading the dog to establish the personal details.
The violation of the disposal obligation constitutes an administrative offense and can be punished with a fine according to § 20 para. 1 no. 7 HundeG.
