I've got two dogs and would not go anywhere without nappy-sac's to bag up the poo. I live in a rural area but sometimes question how we are conditioned into thinking about dog fouling. For example in many of the bridle paths which we take the dogs horses use these as well. Mounds of excretia from them but that's OK, they're horses.

And what about Canada Geese? If you get a flock of them landing in your village green or park the whole place is out-of-bounds for everyone as they foul very badly especially as they are usually mob-handed. A golf course I play is blighted by them - it is impossible not to step on it.

Some people do take matters into their own hands.

If dog mess is such a serious problem as we are led to believe,

Any initiatives to address the serious matter of dog fouling in our housing schemes, whether they are promoted by local housing authorities or by Glasgow City Council, deserve the support of all Glaswegians if we are to tackle this nuisance.

Guest can you make your mind up.... is dog fouling really a serious matter in our housing schemes or is it really just a nuisance?? Come on please.... I would say that it is important that you make up your mind here on this matter before suggesting whether I deserve to support it or not!!

Thanks Mary.... I know what you are saying here and I would agree that it is a nuisance and something needs to be done if this nuisance is effecting peoples quality of life but the point I was making is that maybe its not the worst thing we face in life. And also it is something we could fix if we took the right approach to it. What I mean is that there are other things like homelessness that deserve more attention than doggy poo.

Sorry you might have missed the point. Some people take matters into their own hands and shoot the geese.

If you get caught drunk driving well over the limit, they will take and crush your car. Crushed dogs anyone?

I think thats the next thing down the line as probably someone has done a survey and its came back that tourists and posh people in general dont like dogs. So they will start a campaign that dogs themselves are a public nuisance and not just their poo.... then they can blame the owners and take them off them. Just another stick to hit poor people with!!

One of the biggest problems in Glasgow regarding dog mess seems to be (as shown below) the lack of suitable – or any available – bins where dog owners can dispose of dog dirt. Maybe if there were more bins, especially dedicated dog dirt bins, we could all try to keep Glasgow more beautiful?
