Absolutely no need to allow dogs to do that.
Such anti social behaviour needs to be captured with photographic evidence. Thereafter confront the individual to pick it up and also report to site office. I always carry a compact camera and/or phone. You never know what you may witness good or bad, as a picture paints a thousand words.

People have always picked up but it's still not pleasant to see when there was no need for them to have been there anyway, just too idle to go to the designated area.

And I get really annoyed with "He won't hurt he's only playing". If I wanted to play I would get my own dog. I appreciate that some people love and are comforted by their pets but I do not feel the need to treat each of them as if it were my own baby!

Have you ever tried explaining to a dog that it can't "go" just there,it's got to walk another 100 yards to where we humans have provided a special place? Nothing to do with idleness.

Exactly, dog owners do not go out to cause annoyance to others, well the responsible ones don`t anyway. as we all know there are folk that hate dogs and acts that  reinforce this do not do the rest of us, who are responsible dog owners any favours. accidents will happen in all walks of life. and we all do our best not to let this happen, so please be a bit more understanding, as dog owners are embarrassed if that happens. if it is picked up, they have done their best, and no one can do more.

Just as annoying as dogs off the leash is the owner shouting loudly at them to "come back here" time and time again with the dog taking no notice.

Why not wait untill the dog has done it's business at the rear of their own pitch, then we wouldn't have to see it!

My partner is VERY wary of dogs having been bitten at a young age. Can owners PLEASE stop saying "he's very gentle. He wouldn't hurt a fly.".

It doesn't make the fear go away.

I too was bitten in my younger days. I also had encounters with a collie who wouldn't hurt a fly according to he owner, jumping up and viciously snapping at my neck.they complained when I refused to deliver their paper if the dog was out.

I would never allow my dog to approach another person unless they wanted to talk to her. Having said that she can normally tell who likes dogs and who does not. Perhaps irrationally I tend to follow the old adage that if my dog doesn't like you then I probably won't either
Although that's probably no more irrational than those who have had a scary experience with a couple of dogs and thereafter dislike all of them!

Irrational is being frightened of UK spiders, being frightened of animals with sharp teeth doesn't sound irrational to me.

I didn't use the word "frightened" in my post but I can agree that being wary of animals with sharp teeth is sensible, particularly if humans are included!

Still no reason to be scared of all of them though....

They brought the same in in Flintshire a couple of months ago. There is a private company, rather than the council, running it. I think that, basically, it’s a good idea but we’ll see how it’s run before I pass judgement.

If every council adopts such a policy then eventually all dog owners will carry bags out of habit.

We don't carry doggy bags - the dog carries her own!  up!

She has two emergency bags folded small and tucked into her harness, and never less than three or four knotted around the handle of her lead. It's not exactly difficult to go prepared, is it!!  shrugg

Very good Dave. If all owners did the same and picked up after their dogs, all we would have to do is try to get those who dump the bags on the ground or hang them on a fence, tree or bush to put them in a bin  Whistle1

Have you seen the dog poo powered street light in Malvern ?  Put in dollop of poo, wind handle to grind it up and you have done your bit for green power ....or the dog has. Such a good idea and, if we had a dog, I’d certainly use it.

I have often seen that and thought is it just for show, does the owner really pick it up. We just put bags, unused, in our pockets!

This assumes you wear exactly the same clothes every time you have the dog with you - or that you can guarantee to remember the bags every time you set out. Neither seems very likely to me, so we do the sensible thing and ensure we always have some with us.

I've lost count of the times I've seen people with no obvious bags looking round furtively and quickly dragging their dog, as the poor thing stoops and strains. Would they have dragged him on if there had been nobody watching??

The ones who really annoy me are those who let their dogs wander off the lead on footpaths, quiet lanes and other places where the dog is likely to dump where people will walk. They pay no attention to the dog, which often lags behind, and it seems obvious they have no concern about where it dumps, nor the slightest intention of picking it up.

At least we always have the means to do so, and on more than one occasion have offered (rather pointedly) to give a bag to other owners when their dog has just performed.

I saw that very thing today, while walking around the shore today a lady was miles ahead of her dog which did a lovely dump. Then this rather smartly dressed lady on her phone past us not paying any attention at all to her just a smart poodle off the lead which recycled the fresh dump. Well it did save a bag.

My wife and I have never left home without  bags, Spar do good nappy bags, and I am to poor to own more than one coat!

Why do people bag it and the hang it on the nearest branch, hoping for a poo fairy?

I know many of you have been to France. Dog mess everywhere and most towns have bags available on dispensers. What amazes us is the amount of dog mess next to these areas!

I also like that most French campsites we have stayed at have bags by reception and most do not charge for dogs, not like in this country, we always avoid such sites.

Happy dog walking and look where you tread.
