A small minority of dog owners are not clearing up after their dogs. Dog mess can cause serious illness particularly in children and people with reduced immunity. Tiny Toxacara Canis eggs can remain long after the rain has washed the visible mess away. It is seen as a significant public health issue, and dog owners can be fined for leaving their dog's mess in public places. The Parish Council is putting up notices to remind dog owners of their legal duties and increasing waste bin capacity in Leintwardine. The Council also plans to provide dog waste bag dispensers, so that dog owners will have no excuse for not acting responsibly.
