Taking steps to fine dog owners

Share this article

There’s a Selkirk song that says: “Haud up yer heids ye gallant lads, ye’ve come frae naething smaa.”

Well, in Selkirk, if you follow that instruction, “haud up yer heid”, ye’ll stand in something smaa.

Dog owners who refuse to pick up their pets’ dirt, or direct them to the gutter, rather than letting them foul anywhere on the pavement – get your act together!

Failure to have the necessary equipment with them when walking their pet should lead to an on-the-spot fine.
