Update on polls and Crufts tickets competition

05 April 2016    11:00

Our poll showed that around two thirds of you believed that the 'means to pick up' measures were not appropriate having considered some of the potential issues of this approach. When commenting on this question a number of people mentioned that they thought this would be unenforceable because of how vague the guidelines are for what an acceptable 'means to pick up' is and also the ability of local authorities to police this restriction.  

While the Kennel Club is in favour of reasonable approaches to encourage people to pick up after their dog, we question whether these measures will do anything to tackle persistent offenders, who should be the focus of local authority enforcement.

KC Dog will continue to work with local authorities to try and ensure that the restrictions introduced are balanced and effective in targeting the irresponsible minority who don't pick up after their dog.
