Message from some responsible dog owners who always clean up after their dogs. They drop the bag in either one of the special bins provided by our benevolent Council, or bring it home and put it in the dustbin. Just recently, they have started to notice more and more dog dirt on the pavement and grass verges. You hardly ever see dogs roaming free these days, so presumably the owner has just let the dog foul the pavement and then deliberately done nothing about it.
Nearly as bad are the people who scoop up the dirt but then throw the bag into a hedge bottom. If it’s beneath their dignity to walk to a bin with a bag of dog doo’s then they shouldn’t have a dog in the first place.
Although it has been recognised that many dog owners are complying with the regulations we wish to thank them for having consideration for others by placing the dog “pooh” in a doggy bag and into the bins provided or taking it home to dispose of.
Dog owners who do not clean up after dogs can be fined up to £1,000. Thank you for helping to keep our area clean.
