Pick up the poo!

There is no way of trying to be delicate about it……when you see dog poo in the street, it is offensive and totally unnecessary. In the same way as you wouldn’t neglect to feed your pet, there is no way you should neglect to pick up the result of that food, from the road or the footpath.

Anyone who fails to clear up after their dog can be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice of up to £100. If the case goes to court this could cost the owner or person in charge of the animal up to £1,000.

The law states that being unaware a dog has fouled or not having a suitable bag is not a reasonable excuse.

Please be considerate. Pick up the poo!
