Dog Pooh & Pet Owners Who Don’t Pick Up!

It is an age old problem, and just when you think that the neighbourhood is waking up to the fact that
dog pooh needs to be picked up after your pet has dropped it, and taken home to depose of it.

More evidence arrives that just makes you feel mad!

This morning I received this message ” Would it be possible to remind people in the area to pick up after their dogs? We have woken up this morning to find dog mess all over the pavement across our driveway. We live on Ryan Avenue and have to take our son and baby down to the school so you can imagine how much fun it was trying to avoid the mess this morning! It also isn’t fair for all the other parents and children going down to the school as it has been walked through so people are going to have dirty shoes all day.”

It is a very fair message one that makes me feel that some of our residents will not pick up until they are caught and fined for allowing their dog to foul public places.

Ryan avenue is a access to a school. Dog Pooh is a way in which disease is spread. Please pick up after your Pet, I know that the vast majority do.
