Just when I'm having my breakfast-!
Wonder if the fella who walks along the bypass by the BP garage in Formby sees this? Yes folk have spotted you mr... With your short hair, leg tattoo and rotty type dog. Very kind of you to just let it dump in the grass ready for the next unsuspecting cyclist or walker to step-in.
Why cant people let there dogs crap in their own gardens .
My dogs do . We dont take them out for runs until they do.
The area by Royal Birkdale is disgusting dog mess everywhere and the few people who do pick it up tend to throw the bag in the bushes.
This is even worse than just leaving the mess.
People have to live at the side of this area and during hot days the smell of dog mess is disgusting.
Dog mess and Dog noise. Even when reported the local environmental people just ignore you.
Ferryside Lane playing fields are full of dog dirt.Owners take dog's on from daylight until dusk.Feel sorry for all the sportsmen/women who have to use it.I believe they have to check all the field before play.
You want to try and walk near the Vets at Wennington Rd without stepping in mess, and as for the dog owner on the corner of Milton and Wennington, try controlling your dog rather than just leave it to jump over the wall and wander off down the street fouling the pavements !!
"Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, it is now possible to request information on almost anything."
Oh please ... you could ask for information about "almost anything"; but the most important/interesting topic that you could think of was dog poo?
Obsession with faeces is actually a recognisable psychological condition ... you can get professional help for it!
The Velvet Trial is a favourite mutt toilet for the ignorant dog owner. Not only do they encourage their animals to drop faeces about the land, but these terrible human beings allow their feral mutts to run around unleashed, disrupting local wildlife and frightening innocent children. The Queen's Jubilee Nature Trail has also been violated by ignorant dog owners. Ignorant dog owners are also responsible for getting in my way on cycle paths... but that's a rant for another day.
With dark nights rapidly approaching it gets much worse, as all these "responsible" dog owners sneak out under cover of darkness hoping no-one can see them.
Dogs are a dirty, noisy nuisance but I think cats are a worse problem. There is NOTHING you can do to keep them from scratting about in your own garden and hiding a disgusting mess for the unsuspecting weeder!
I have tried sprays, pellets, moth-balls, powder and all sorts to keep them away - if anybody knows of an effective deterrent please could they let me know?

depends on the size of your border but if you get garden canes and put them in the ground as long as you dont leave too big a gap between them the cats wont have space to squat to make a mess
