Growing problem: People are not picking up after their dogs

We have an 18-month-old golden retriever and we walk him in our Carmel Valley neighborhood twice a day. We have noticed that people are not picking up after their dogs and it is becoming a real problem.

Now that school is out and more of the kids are walking their dogs, the lawns and sidewalks are covered. You actually have to watch very carefully as you are walking so as not to step in the dog droppings.  When we offer these kids bags, they refuse.

Parents need to either talk to their kids about this or walk their dogs themselves. We are hoping that adults have more sense and cleanup after their dogs. We just got home from the park at Carmel Knolls and our dog slid and fell into a big pile of dog feces. I cannot tell you how disgusting this was.  We had to take him home and bathe him.

Patti Passov,

Carmel Valley
