I don’t want to carry dog mess

I AM contacting you as I am a responsible dog owner who always cleans up after my dog on the streets etc, which I believe is correct and all dog owners should do the same.

The one thing I would like to raise is that there are no dog bins on any streets for responsible owners like myself to put the bags in once you have cleaned up after your dog.

If you take your dog for a long walk the one thing that you don't really want to do is carry it around with you and I should know as I have to do this.

I don't know if this is something that can be brought to the council's attention.

Mrs Tracey King.

Jumper is right - If I wanted to bring something to the councils attention, I too would contact the council. Seems a bit of a crazy idea but it may be worth a go?

It is your dog so you shift the mess, why should someone else have the job of moving your dogs output, the bin-men of the town have this problem with disposable nappies, selfish people who do not care about others.

Why not do what dog owners using Queens Recreation Park do, hang the bags of s**t on the railings in Dilloway Street for someone else to move, the aswer is simple if you don't want to carry the s**t home for disposal get rid of the dog, the by-products are your problem not the Council.

Out of curiosity, I have just counted 3 dog excrement bins on this road after looking at google street map. There is then absolutely no excuse for that behaviour.

The point of everything that the council says ,promise or anything else is just the empty vessel scenario.if they were serious about anything they could blitz each commitment they say or make,rather than let everything just go on like a slow dripping tap. Which means nothing will ever get sorted out.why the council do not make their resources pro-active is nothing short of shameful.

As the way to most open areas or good dog walking sites means mostly walking through residential areas, why not place half and half litter bins and dog deposit containers along paths/roads? That way responsible people can tidy up after themselves and their dog as they go along?

That is a ridicules idea what you are saying is dog owners can dump their dog s**t in bins near other residents properties and stink the area until the council decide to send someone to empty them and the dog owner does not have it near their homes, as I have stated before dog owners choose to have these eating and sh**ting machines so it is their responsibility to take the mess away with them and dispose of it at home in their own bin or toilet if no other option is available to them.

We non-child people could also say the same about people with offspring who let them cause untold mess and vandalism anywhere and everywhere but I presume that is ok? Lidded bins would cause no smell what-so-ever so I do not really see your point.

My point is that the owner of the dog removes the mess not the council or council employee, clearing this mess should not be the responsibility or a burden on the Council Tax payers, if owners don't accept this the all the local Vets will put it down for them.

How ridiculous is your stance on this? Old 'uns always the best??? You mean when people never cleaned up their dogs mess and left it widespread? Yes, brilliant idea. Here we have a responsible dog owner, cleaning up her dogs mess and, reasonably enough, asking if more bins can be made available for the well wrapped, fastened bag holding said mess to be placed in (as there are in many other towns) and you are still whinging! Unbelievable.
