Rutland dog warden Barry Briggs urges people to ‘bag it and bin it’ during Poop Scoop Week

A DOG warden has urged people to pick up after their pets.

This week marks Poop Scoop Week, an annual Dogs Trust initiative, and as part of it, dog warden Barry Briggs is urging people to bag it and bin it.

Barry said: “The majority of dog owners in Rutland are very responsible and clear up after their dog. However, there is a small minority who do not and it’s very unpleasant for those who walk and live in those areas.”
