Are you a fair-weather scooper?
We all know we should pick up our dog’s poop, but it’s very easy to forget a bag or look the other way especially when no one else is around.
Don’t be that kind of dog owner. Make a point of scooping your dog’s poop every single time they go on public property. Carry a few bags with you so you’re always prepared to pick up after your dog. It’s also important to regularly clean up pet waste on your own property.
Neglecting to pick up after your dog could mean that someone else picks it up … on their shoes. Far more seriously, it could expose people and other pets to bacteria, viruses and parasites in your pet’s waste. You could also end up with a $100 fine.
There’s no denying that scooping up poop is an unpleasant job, but it’s a responsibility that comes with owning your dog and a small price to pay for the joys of owning a furry friend.
Help keep the pathways around the league poop free, and please remember that all dogs on parkland must be on a leash.
Reminder: La Perle rinks are not considered an off-leash park; please refrain from using them for your dogs. The nearest off-leash area is Callingwood or Patricia Ravine, visit the City of Edmonton’s website for locations and details of all dog parks in our city.
