I am emailing regarding the disgusting amount of dog mess which can be found not only on the beach but also on the roads in Hoylake, in particular, Charles Road and Market Street. It is unfair and something should be done to catch these people and fine them for their inconsiderateÂ behaviourÂ towards others. To my knowledge, there are no notice warnings telling people to clear up the mess. It is a shame as many people are doing their best to make Hoylake a clean and beautiful place to live. In many parts of the country, dogs are not allowed on the beach between May and October. Maybe, Wirral Borough Council should implement this rule here. It is a shame as there are many law-abiding down owners who one sees regularly clearing up after their pets. However, it is always a small minority who spoil it for everybody else.
Personally I don’t believe that this is a problem unique to Hoylake – I regularly run through West Kirby and there were a few “land mines” to avoid on the prom this week. A search in Google suggests the problem is nationwide.
Are irresponsible dog owners giving other owners and their dogs a bad name? Have your say in the comments below.
