Eight Carlisle areas to be targeted by dog squad revealed

A hit squad of wardens is cleaning up Carlisle’s streets after it was revealed 560 complaints were made about dog fouling and more than 400 strays seized.

Have your say

Why has Denton Holme been omitted from this??
Having lived there for almost 20 years and walked my dog round the area for 13 years I find it amazing that it has not been included as the area is covered with the stuff!!

The council should re-employ someone to walk round and fine people... They'd pay for themselves in a month!!

i have no solution to the 'where should dogs poop' debate but i am incresingly incenced by lanes and their entrances being fouled, almost every corner and stretch of road in belah has dog excrement on it im sorry but in this fine day and age i shouldnt have to walk my kids to school dodging what is ultimately the owners responsibility if my kids left live feaces in the street there would b uproar or if i over turned their nappies into the street but if its a dog its ok? i think not, it is completely unsanitary. and the law is completely pointless unless it can be enforced so while theres murderers on the streets lets leave the police etc actually doing their job while you put a nappy on your dogs backside!

Dog owners should be made to carry a dog licence and have personal liability insurance in place.This would safe-guard the general public at large and foster a culture of responsibililty.

The wardens should fine and take pictures of the offenders and post there pictures on lamposts where their dog fouls until the fine is paid the picture can be taken down,
that would be good.

Good old polititians, can't even sort out the age old problem of littering and dog faeces. How could you expect them address anything of a more substantial nature.

I'm not sure of the tonnage of dog fouling on British streets and parks if ever cleared. In a national paper this weekend. It was said, that the British chuck away 13 tons of rubbish every week on just motorways alone. I found this, to put matter in comparison, as such thrown away rubbish, besides dog fouling and many cow dung's may go into water courses and the eco environment. I've seen the river banks at Rockcliffe (some still with debris of Carlisle Floods) and the mass of rubbish that has flowed down the River Eden. It's not dog muck, but human's discarded rubbish... some of which goes, as known into the sea's environment. Where are the fines for littering louts which now starting at a young age. Sea gulls now dive bombing in town centre for discarded crisp packets and left over pies. We'll soon be eating via polluted fish stocks caught by sea going trawlers. I pay council tax as many do so where is the Dog Squaddies for our non-patrolled communities? Bet they don't have Wellies on?

Dog owners who are responsible will clean up after thier dogs that have fouled the pavements and fields or other public areas, i think the council workers who enforce these environmental laws to protect public health do a great job, fining these anti social dog owners must be a campaign that is sustained punative and determined.

Flimby needs clamped down on its disgusting !! i have to stand in it to pick my dogs up and i manage to do it everytime they foul its realy not hard !!
If your gonna have dogs at least be responsable enough to clean up after them !!

Most of the dog poo I see on the usua l dog walks in carlisle is bagged up by owners and hen discarded in hedges, or on tree branches or fences! Putting bins on the common dog walks or parks wold certainly be cheaper than warden wages in this day and age. There is a lot of responsible dog owners out there but as well as enforcement, the council should provide more bins for poo and litter to give people the chance to bin it responsibly
