Tenancy guide

Responsible dog ownership

Harrow Council allow tenants to keep dogs in their flats or houses as long as they are well cared for, responsibly kept and do not cause problems to other residents. As such, we want to make sure dogs are looked after in the best possible way to benefit both dog owners and the wider community.

We have created a Responsible Dog Ownership Agreement to help manage dog ownership for the benefit of all residents and the environment.

The guide includes information on:

  •     General dog care
  •     Keeping dogs under control
  •     Disposal of dog fouling
  •     Breach of tenancy

Dog owners are asked to complete and sign the Responsible Dog Ownership Agreement and submit it to housing@harrow.gov.uk.
