Pick up the Poo!
We are still receiving complaints that some people are still not clearing up after their dogs on footpaths and open spaces.
You must be prepared each time you take your dog out to pick up the waste every time. This is the responsibility that comes with dog ownership, so make sure you always have bags with you. It is an offence to leave your dog’s mess in a public place and subject to a fine of at least £80. In extreme instances dog mess can cause blindness due to a parasitic worm called toxocariasis.
In any case, it is unnecessary for inconsiderate dog owners to cause their fellow walkers to look at their feet instead of the world around them. Dog waste can be disposed of in public litter bins (preferably double bagged) where a dog bin is not available or can be taken home and placed in your general refuse bin – not left hanging in trees.
If you are aware of a perpetrator who does not
clean up after a dog, you can report it on www.horsham.gov.uk /bins/reportit or phone in confidence on 01403 733144.
