Sir - I was prompted to write to the paper following Sue Stephens letter to you about dog waste.
My daughter started school in September and it is either a five minute drive away or a 20 minute walk each way every day.
I am trying to be a responsible parent and we walk, through a residential housing area, every day whatever the weather.
However, our trips to school are marred by inconsiderate dog owners who do not pick up their dogs' waste.
You may also want to watch:
Instead of enjoying our trip I have to constantly scan the floor and remember where I saw some waste in order to avoid it for the return trip home.
It wouldn't be quite so bad if the waste was done on the grass verges (although I still don't think this is right) but who lets their dog do its business in the middle of a footpath?

I am sure that there are a lot of responsible dog owners who clear up after their dogs and are being let down by the irresponsible dog owners.
As far as I am concerned if you have a dog you should clean up after it and either take it home or use the dog waste bins that are around.
