True but what I meant was the council could police the area and catch the dog owners in the act
why not try and better yourself and move to a respectable area!!
Very helpful post there, cheers.
Why don't you try a different forum if you're going to take that attitude here?.
Not sure if they still do, but in Paris they used popper scoopers on motor bikes , that went around sucking it up and then spraying the area with disinfectant. Sound like the way to go for me, so far as combating the health side of things.

Penalties should still enforced though, if owners are not doing their duty.
I lived on Quarry Road many years ago, and it was a problem even then. I was at a funeral recently in Christ the King church, and even the grounds of the church were full of dog crap. Walking along Annaly Road was like trying to pick a way through a minefield.
Mind you, I am living in the south inner city at present and the problem is the same here....
Cabra is terrible for dog ****, I moved there last year and am constantly astonished by the mess all over the pavements. Every time I walk home I have to check my feet when I get in the door, especially if it's dark. There are a lot of dogs around my area that just wander the streets on their own, the owners leave them out in the front garden and let them wander around freely, so I'd imagine this is probably a large part of it.
Thankfully stray dogs wandering around is not a problem around here.
You can call the dog warden and explain that this particular dog is always out off it's leash and they will come and check the dog for ID and bring it back to the owner, telling off or fine, if no ID then it's off to the pound.
