Control of Dogs Survey

Survey (see below) on dogs in public places expires Nov. 27th!

If you own a dog that is particularly active, perhaps sign up for dog agility classes which are great fun and excellent training for dogs & owners! Also please remember that if you are on the coast, migrating birds need to feed & roost in fields at high tide: constant disturbance by dogs makes the birds' survival less likely. You may not notice or be interested in wildfowl like lapwing, oyster catchers, Brent Geese but they depend on our environment whilst our dogs can still enjoy a good walk on an extending lead - and perhaps it will give the owner more exercise too!
