I LIVE near a park in Parkwood with a great little sub-community of dog owners.
However, there seems to be a growing trend (mainly visitors) to not pick up after their dogs, and letting them play inside a fenced off children’s playground.
In addition, some allow their dogs to keep on yapping, sometimes standing by while their pets encourage neighbourhood dogs through the fence to join in the furore.
I am a dog lover myself, but I ask you please be mindful of how your dog’s behaviour affects everyone – neighbours, parents and children, and those others using the park who are continually having to pick up after strangers’ dogs.
