On Wednesday night the council officers bring their suggestions on dog control to the cabinet. Their key points are:
Leaving dog faeces on the ground will continue to be an offence, just as it is now.
Letting a dog go into enclosed areas such as childrens play areas will be a new offence.
Dogs will still need to be kept on leads along highways and pavements
There will be a new legal requirement to put your dog on a lead when requested to by an ‘authorised officer’ . this might apply if your dog is misbehaving in a park….
It will now be an offence to have more than dogs under your control at any one time in a public place. (Chris has already had one phone call about this from someone who knows a dogowner with 6 dogs…)
