Residents are being asked to watch out for people who allow their dogs to foul in public and to report them.
The council has joined forces with Environmental Health officers and police to fight back.
As well as asking the public for their help the council is also considering using CCTV, DNA testing and fluorescent spray to deal with the problem.
Dog fouling can be particularly dangerous for children because of the toxocara parasite.
Not clearing up after a dog is an offence and can result in a £75 Fixed Penalty Notice. Failure to pay this could lead to a £1,000 fine.
People who bag the mess but don’t dispose of it properly, such as by placing bagged faeces in hedges, can be fined up to £2,500 for littering.
Residents are being asked to report to the council where and when dog waste is being left, along with a description of the dog or its owner.
