Unfortunately, it is patently obvious that some people feel they are far too posh to pick up their pooches poos, they would rather have people and children step in it. It is selfish and shows a total disregard for other people. It also gives all dog owners a bad name. No amount of signs and warnings will have any effect - we need these fines to be enforced and only then will irresponsible dog owners take notice,

I walk past a school in Shenley and some scumbags always leaves dog poo outside on the pavement. Do these dog owners know the potential risk to children or do they just not care? Why is nothing ever done it has been like this for a year or two this village will be like old Amsterdam soon.

I wonder what would happen if we put in a Freedom of Information request and asked how many people had been caught and fined?
