Poo bags should be compostable or biodegradable, but mainly just plastic. Such a shame the government doesn’t regulate single use plastic as they should, that shops sell anything and then people buy whatever without thinking long term. They’re expensive too.
As a dog owner, I notice many people who cannot control their dogs ( eg recall). There should be compulsory training for people.
Heavens it used to be ten times worse, over the last two decades or so 95 percent, probably more, bag their dog poo. It is one area where legislation, good citizenship, appropriate facilities provided by the council, and nudging people into good behaviour has worked.
I'm sure most including dog owners will agree.
There used to be and still is a lot on our Road especially by trees or in the middle of the pavement. I got fed up navigating the buggy and small child around it all. I contacted the council many times. They’d come and clean up the mess within a day or two but then more appears.
What really annoys me is dog owners who deliberately let their dogs poo on the pavements around schools. The amount of children I see on a daily basis walking/running through poo or riding scooters/bicycles through. It’s absolutely disgusting!
