Dogís mess in public places is not only unpleasant but dangerous,

to clear up your dogís messÖ.
Making a mess of the Environment
dogís mess is changing the environment, fertilising the soil, leading to
damaging changes in the ecology of the area. Sand dune environments have low
nutrient levels so more nutrients are bad for the plants and encourage nettles
and brambles to take over. You only need to look along the paths to see the
faeces left in public places pose a great danger to other users of the area.
Children especially are at risk from Toxicaris, a disease caused by the eggs of
round worms which can lead to blindness. Faeces also harbour other diseases and
bacteria which can be spread on shoes and wheels.
