CAN I, through your letters page, remind dog owners that the ‘please take your rubbish home’ message applies to them also in respect of used dog poop bags.

It is very disappointing to note that some dog owners go to such extraordinary lengths to hide these bags - like stuffing them within the cracks of natural stone walls - or are so blatantly ignorant that they toss them anywhere. Perhaps a dog owner can advise why they think this behaviour is acceptable.

Might I suggest that if they are not prepared to take this rubbish home and dispose of sensibly then they should not own a dog - simple.

Many thanks.
