Dear Sir/Madam,

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information Request about Dog Wardens.

 

Request and Response

1a.)  For each year from 2005/6 to 2018/19 could you please tell me the
total number of w.t.e (whole time equivalent) dog wardens you employ? One
Officer was employed until 24 May 2015. Dog warden duties were part of her
role as an animal welfare officer, but we do not hold the information on
what proportion of 1 FTE that equated to.

 

1b.) the role of the dog warden has been dispersed to other staff Not
applicable

 

1c. you do not directly employ any dog wardens and manage this function
via a contract with an external provider: Yes

could you please let me know for each year from 2005/6 to 2018/19 how many
people undertake dog warden duties and what proportion of their time in
whole time equivalents (w.t.e.) that they roughly spend on the dog
warden's role. We don’t hold this information so not available to us to
release it under FOI, the contractor holds the information.

 

The contractors employed were:

Enfield Kennels Limited were awarded a contract to provide the stray dog
collection for Enfield Council commencing on 1 May 2010 to 31 October 2012

London Borough Waltham Forest had the contract for 6 years from November
2012 - 2018

London Borough of Islington have the contract from May 2018 onwards

2. For each year from 2005/6 to 2018/19 how many Commercial Breeding

granted for the breeding of dogs for any successive year to present-day.
