We all try and do our bit to keep our community friendly, clean and tidy. Unfortunately there are few who don’t. Now there are more homes in Cambourne do you feel we need to re-instate a dog warden (or issue authority to a person to enforce the law on dog fouling and dogs not under owner control?
Left dog faeces causes a number of problems ie children walking or falling onto it. Other dogs eating it. Also it absorbs into the ground and lay there for years. This can be dangerous for the young and the vulnerable due to toxocariasis which can lead to blindness. Dog’s not under owners control even though people may trust their dog’s off the lead, other residents may not. A dog running up to them can cause distress for wildlife, parents with young children, the elderly, disabled or other owner’s with their dogs on leads. Poster’s and signage people tend to ignore but if they were confronted with a fine would they ignore that??? Please sign to try and make a difference and take pride where we live!!!
