Valentine's: a tail of true love

PoopThis Valentine's, we’ve joined forces with the Dog’s Trust, who campaign on the issue of dog fouling by encouraging owners to be more responsible and changing the attitudes of the minority who fail to pick up after their dogs.

See the Dog Trust Valentine's music video a tail of true love and share it with your friends!

Dog owners, please remember:

  • always carry a poo bag with you - tie one to your lead so you always have a spare
  • in Epsom & Ewell, you can dispose of dog mess in any public litter bin
  • don’t discard your used poo bags for someone else to pick up
  • it’s important to keep sight of your dog at all times when in a public space so that you can see when and where they poo
  • if you see someone in need of a poo bag offer them one of yours!
  • wash your hands after your walk. Dog faeces may contain worms that can be a threat to human health. For advice about treating your dog against worms, contact your vet.

    I was struggling to see the connection between these two very worthy, but entirely unrelated topics. Watching the video (in essence, “no greater love hath a man for his dog, than he is prepared to pick up its poop!”) does make the suggestion, I’ll say it’s an interesting exercise in lateral thinking.......... :-)

Have your say...
