Fleet Pond welcomes responsible dog owners and their dogs. We hope you will continue to enjoy the nature reserve and its wildlife.
Sadly there is a minority who seem unwilling to accept that a dog can be a serious threat to the wildlife on a nature reserve and who will allow their pet to chase or harass ducks, swans and the deer. Others fail to remove dog mess or leave it lying about in plastic bags. The latter can be worse than not bagging it as someone else has to remove it.
If you should witness irresponsible behaviour by a dog owner, please report this to Hart District Council’s Dog Warden Service. Try to make a note of the breed of dog and a description of the owner.
