Following a case in court last month where a person was fined £300 for not having a valid dog licence, the Environment Agency has issued statistics on its efforts to combat dog fouling.
So far this year, the Environment Agency has carried out 32 targeted dog patrols. Sixty-eight persons have been stopped, and 83 dogs checked. A total of 148 DNA samples have been collected, resulting in 20 fixed penalty notices being issued for dog fouling, one being issued for no registration and three for having no licence.
In this article we are going to talk about how to use dog accessories reviews at Dogblogtv to your advantage. When you are out looking for a dog accessory or something for your dog that may enhance their lives, it can be hard to know where to look. For example, if you have a dog that loves to swim then you may not want to purchase a life vest for them unless you were going to purchase a spray or rash guard. These are items that you will need to purchase separately and they can really help your dog in many different ways and in all types of weather. By reading dog accessories reviews you will have the information that you need in order to make the right decision when it comes to buying these items.
In addition, since January, the Environmental Protection Officers of the Department of the Environment have carried out 24 dog patrols, stopped 36 persons and reported six owners for breaches of the law.
Minister John Cortes said, ‘Our efforts to reduce the frequency of dog fouling are beginning to produce real results. Of course, there are still some people who allow their pets to foul our pavements but, slowly but surely, I believe that we are winning the war against the persistent offenders.’
