The latest figures show a 50 per cent drop in the number of dog faeces following a sample count in three of the parks in the pilot area.
The scheme, the first of its type in the country, involved dog owners registering with PooPrints, animal DNA specialists.
Officers from the council’s environmental enforcement team and park rangers service carried out proactive patrols in the pilot area to collect samples of any dog faeces in the three wards. Samples were sent to PooPrints to check for a match to any dog registered on their database.
In Abbey, Barking and Mayesbrook parks, officers counted up to 35 dog poos in just one hour on 21 January – the day of the launch of the scheme – but in the latest count officers counted only 17.
Council leader Darren Rodwell said: "It's still early days but it looks like our drive to encourage considerate dog ownership is having success.
"But it looks as though there are a hard core of inconsiderate dog owners out there who haven't got the message yet that it's unacceptable not to pick up after your pet.
"It's why we will be introducing some sort of enforceable action later in the year – in what guise that will be will be shaped by the outcome of the pilot scheme."
