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

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

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.

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!

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.

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?

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

I’m replying about police horses doing their business unchecked. We stayed, until recently, near the police stables. We got quite friendly with the lady police riders, very nice ladies indeed. However, our paths, pavements and roads were becoming increasingly littered with huge piles of horse manure. We asked our son-in-law, a police officer, to find out if police horses were exempt from any punishment for this mess - much worse than any dog poo problem we had.
Back came the reply that the riders were not allowed to dismount to pick up after their horses (well, you’d need a big shovel and a very big bag!) and were, indeed, exempt. Shocking!
As for dog poo - what problem do people have with just picking up after their canine pals? We were picker-uppers nearly 30 years ago and continued to do so with all of our dogs. On one occasion, I offered a poo bag to a lady whose dog had just performed, she being without a bag. What an embarrassing mistake! She ranted at me, using a few choice words. I was speechless. Apparently, I was a nosey ******, sticking her ******* nose in where it wasn’t wanted.

from what I`m led to believe , and I don`t purport to know anything about the law,horses have right of way in everything,some law going back centuries probably. a neighbour of ours had a prang in his nice car when a horse ran in to him,and nothing he could do,the horse was the winner in law. So a bit of dung will always be forgiven too i suppose.

Sumac, when you think about it, horses `apples' are whats left after the horse's digestive system has extracted what it requires from the, mostly, hay and grass on which the horse feeds. Granted there will be `pony pecils' in among that food intake and the odd bit of crusty bread or carrot but what what is ejected at the other end is, unlike doggie poo, very easily bio-degraded and/or scattered in the wind.
Great for gardens too; roses, vegetables etc.
The only time I saw poo-bags and shovels being used was with the rag-men used to come around blowin' their trumpets shouting DELFFURRARAGS from the driver's seats of their horse and carts ... and when I spent the summer season on the Isle of Man as a young lad cookin' up a storm in '64 and gettin' to know all the horses which pulled the trams as a friend of Belle Caine's man who was their blacksmith and carer in those days. biggrin.gif

You’re right that it’s bio-degradable, but what a stinking mess it is. Our old dog had to be grabbed before she rolled in it and, even worse, ate it. Children on their bikes cycled through it.
On a school trip with my wee class, we went on a pony and cart ride. There were great squeals as the horse, right in front of them, pooed. BUT the horse was wearing a bag at the back which caught the offending mass. Why can’t horses wear these “nappies“?
