  I've often wondered why people with horses don't have to carry a bucket and spade!

I would love to know if Lobby Dosser has ever owned a dog?

Does it matter? Or is that a "put down. "I never had a dog" therefore I am not entitled to an opinion on dogs or those who regard them as other than animals?

Mind ye on a very serious and scary point Wombat, it seems that humans are more bothered about picking up shit from the street than picking up human beings from the oceans.

  Sounds like it's a mix of both - people who don't pick up and no-where to put it if you do pick it up.

I have no sympathy for people who just don't pick up but I have taken the bags home and had to put them in my outside bin because there was no-where else to put it.

Perhaps if more people contacted the council when they saw a full bin it would help.
Perhaps if they were collected and 'disposed of' on the council steps it would help.
Perhaps if people asked for dog bins in a particular area it would help.

Have to be careful though in case the council simply bans all dogs. No drinking / no smoking / no dogs!

Sorry - don't understand the problem.
The value of the fine doesn't really matter.
It's just part of having a dog.
If it does its business - pick it up - no fine - easy!

Have a wee look at the photos in this recent topic, Betsy. As I explain in my post in the topic, the problem is NOT that dog owners don't pick up dog dirt, it is the fact that the council policy of not installing proper dog fouling bins so that the dog owners can properly dispose of the mess they do pick up.

Other councils installed proper dog dirt bins; our council bosses just couldn't be bothered, because they saw yet another money-spinning scheme that will keep them in the affluent manner they have become accustomed to living in.

  I like your idea Ashfield. That is the problem there are TOO many irresponsible dog owners it only takes a minutes to pick it up these people would probably be the first to complain if they were walking on the sidewalk and stood on it in all their finery going out for an evening
I have two dogs that go A LOT

  No - I meant that I can't understand why owners can't just pick it up.
