A friendly way to change attitudes to dog fouling…….
The Parish Council wants dog owners to sign up to this new scheme, by signing up you agree to do the following:
- Scheme members promise to abide by The Rules.
- Scheme members receive high visibility badges/tags for their dogs confirming that they abide by the rules.
- Scheme members will be encouraged to pick up free bio-degradable bags form various locations in Tattenhall.
- Scheme members will be encouraged to carry enough bags to offer to other dog walkers
• clear up after your dog
• always carry bags to clear up
• dispose of the bag correctly by either using a dog waste or litter bin or taking it home and placing it, suitably wrapped, in your own bin
• do not dump the bag in a hedge or elsewhere as this is littering which carries the same penalty as dog fouling
• encourage the dog to ‘go’ in your garden, you can then bury the mess or alternatively clean it up and bin it
• never let your dog out alone to ‘go to the loo’
• always worm your dog regularly, vets normally advise worming dogs every three to four months.
Membership forms will be available soon.
