I am a dog owner myself, and disgusted that people purposely take dogs to sports pitches for their exercise. Worried about the number of dogs off leads in public places. Disgusted the amount of dogs mess on public fields, monuments and footpaths which is a public health risk for two reasons, out of control dogs, and dogs mess which can contain some nasty parasites. I can’t believe they are allowed on public sports pitches. Also I think dogs being off leads and not properly supervised is the main cause of the amount of dogs mess.
More dog bins needed eg the field near Anwyll in Caerleon.
Also some dog owners who live above the green let their dogs out on their own to poo there but this will not stop any of that - what will you do about that? Gives other dog owners a bad name.
