This is my response to all of the media coverage given to the increase in bagged dog waste found on beaches. We need to talk about the CURE and stop just moaning about the PROBLEM!
I have I have known about the dangers of leaving dog waste for years but everyone poo-pooed me (excuse the pun!) plus I was becoming more aware of the added problem of poo bag dumping so I invented the Dicky Bag. It is a fashionable solution to dog fouling; no fines, no bans just trying to engage with dog owners on a more adult level by creating a product which solves the issue of swinging smelly bags of dog waste on what would otherwise be a lovely walk. I am trying to change the general attitude to clearing up dog mess. How many more years will we persist in the futile talk about getting tough with bans and fines? We would need round the clock surveillance in every corner fo the country to catch these people. It’s time to try a new approach? Make being a responsible dog owner fashionable, help me change the way we think and we might just make a difference and see the problem decrease - it's got to be worth a try surely!
