Why Anne Main is Wrong

I feel there are few people better placed to comment on the behaviour and attitude of dog owners in regards to dog fouling. For the last 8 years I have travelled the UK and spoken to hundreds of thousands of dog owners about the problem of dog fouling, including the dumped poo bag problem the lack of bins and where they believe it is acceptable to not pick up. The biggest problem is not the lack...

BBC Countryfile Autumn Diaries

What a great and informative piece on Monday 24th Novembers, BBC Countryfile Autumn Diaries programme Episode 2. So many times when I’m at a show I have a discussion with poeple about why we have to pick up everywhere. It isn’t just about stepping in it, which is nasty and annoying, it’s also about the health of our countryside, water table and farm animals. Picking up after your...

Your dog’s poo is toxic

At last, some one has put up the sign that tells it how it is! YOUR DOG’S WASTE IS TOXIC. This is a great poster placed by the National Trust in St Agnes, Cornwall. Lets hope this starts a new trend of telling people the truth. Picking up after your dog isn’t about fines and avoiding getting caught, it’s about doing the right thing all the time, and knowing why it’s the right...

Cattle Culling because of Parasite in Dog Waste

Here is a very interesting report on BBC Countryfile about a parasite called Neospora. Dogs act as a host to these parasites which they can pick up from all types of meat and food and as there is no cure or vaccine so the parasite won’t be eradicated with worming tablets. If infected dog waste is left and the contaminated grass is injested by cattle the only way of erracdicating the disease...

Councillors wake up to the solution

It was so nice to see this report on the web today.  Cllr Petrina Kingham and Ashley Price from Lewes who are determined to do something about the amount of dog waste and dumped bags met discussed and used Dicky Bags as a solution.  It would appear that at last the message our dicky disciples spread is starting to be heard by the right sort of people.  Instant and permanent bins (ie Dicky Bags that...

Where there’s Muck there’s NO Brass

Frightening statistics have just been revealed on the amount of dog poop generated in each county of the UK and the cost of sending it to landfil. Streetkleen who are campaigning for change in the way councils deal with dog waste have collected together this information to encourage councils to recycle dog waste into energy (yes it can be done – I’ve seen it with my own eyes!). Another...

Dog Fouling Academy

What! It’s a special one day seminar run by Keep Britain Tidy for over 140 councils to make them aware of the problems of dog fouling (like they don’t already know) and to offer ideas and solutions to the problem.  We have been invited along to introduce them to the Dicky Bag which has been identified as a solution to all their problems.  As the new government takes power I think we...

Top 5 facts about Dog Poo

I know it’s not a nice subject but I find myself getting increasingly annoyed by silly comments made by people in an atempt to justify why they don’t pick up their dogs mess.  Like most people I used to believe that the worst thing about dog poo was stepping in it or getting it on the wheels of pushchairs or bikes but after some research I’ve discovered there is a far more sinister...
