Dog owners need to obey the rules

Why do dog owners think that they don’t need to fallow the rules?

Why do dog owners think that they don’t need to fallow the rules?

I live across from a school were it is clearly marked on signs that dogs are not allowed on the property.

But yet over and over again I watch dog owners bring their dogs to run on the field. And then watch the dogs poop and the owner leave the field without picking up after their dogs.

The fields are for children and families to play in while in school and after school hours. They shouldn’t have to be on the lookout for dog poop the entire time. And it says “no dogs allowed.”

Dog poop is also on the trails and side walks all through our region. Has anyone ever clued in that dog poop is actually bad for the environment and streams?

Please clean up after your pets. If you feel that you don’t need to then keep the dogs along with their poop in your backyard or homes.
