DOG wardens will be out in force across Teignbridge next week fining people who don't pick up after their dogs.
Don't be a Dumper is supported by Teignmouth and Dawlish Town Councils, businesses, Dawlish Warren Tourism Group, and Teignmouth and Dawlish Town Centre Development Manager Tracy Scranage, and she said: "Dog fouling cannot be allowed to blight our lovely town centres and seafronts."

Usual over complication of a simple process by civil servants. If we, the ratepayer, are paying for a person to spray paint onto a bit of dog poo and leave it in place. Why can't we save money on the paint and have that person pick up the dog poo instead of waiting for another person to pick it up.

It's no wonder, with the large amounts of rates people pay in Teignbridge, there's no money for the essentials.

On what planet does spraying dog poo with green paint possibly shame the dog owner who left it there, they obviously don't give a poo or they would have picked it up in the first place.

Catch these people and fine them and then name and shame them in their local paper. Better still have a dog poo bandit mug board of the dog/owner on the Teignbridge website. You could get the council to award a golden dog poo to the owner who gets fined the most in one year as a reward for the increased revenue the council would have made from the fines. Yes I am joking, before a certain person gets on their high horse.

Yeah I saw one of the signs in teignmouth at the weekend, luckily it's only lasting a week. I wonder if a dog can hold it in that long? Lol
