Stirling Times - - Opinion -

I TO­TALLY agree with Frank Piper on the dog is­sues (‘Dog Own­ers in the Wrong’, Stir­ling Times, 19/6, Opin­ion).

I for one have had enough of dogs off the leash bound­ing around Scar­bor­ough Beach and walk­ing around the doggy doos on the path­ways.

And when you ask some­one to put the dog back on a leash, all you get is abuse.

I have con­tacted the City of Stir­ling many times about this and I have just sent an email to the Mayor to get some ac­tion about dogs in non-des­ig­nated ex­er­cise ar­eas bound­ing around; the coun­cil has a duty of care for the pub­lic on this is­sue.

We reg­u­larly walk and have a cof­fee and now you have to put up with dogs in­side cafes; this must be a health is­sue when a dog is in a food area or on a seat at a ta­ble be­ing fed scraps, and worst of all cafe staff serv­ing plates of food then fuss­ing and han­dling dogs.

Do they wash their hands be­fore go­ing back into the kitchen and pre­par­ing more food?

We don't go back to cafes that have dogs in­side.
