Dog fouling on the pavements and footpaths of Kirkheaton has long been an issue. Hopefully  the advent of the Kirklees dog control orders  will highlight the responsibilities of owning a dog and impose fines on the minority of owners who do not behave responsibly.
A number of dog dirt bag dispensers are located around the village and dog owners are asked to use these and after tying the bag up, to dispose of it in a litter bin or take it home to dispose of there.
The illustration is not really meant to be read.
