We support the Leave Only Pawprints campaign by Keep Wales Tidy and once again we’re appealing to irresponsible dog owners to pick up after their dog has fouled.

If you don’t you could be liable for a £100 fine and nobody wants that so please always carry a bag to pick up the poo.

Dog poo can be hazardous to others, particularly if stepped in, it also isn’t pleasant to see in our country parks and on the pavements.

Darren Williams, Chief Officer Environment and Technical, said, “The majority of dog owners are responsible and pick up after their dog has fouled but there are still a few irresponsible individuals who prefer to leave it where it is. This is an offence and can harm individuals and wildlife. I would encourage everyone who sees it happening to report so we can target hot spot areas.”
