Dogs are valued members of families, companions and friends to many. They should not cause serious problems for others but thousands are received every year by council dog wardens accross the country. The most common complaint? Fouling.
Dog dirt is unpleasant, smelly and may carry diseases and parasites which can affect both humans and dogs alike. Leaving your dog's mess in public places is an offence against the law and you can be fined up to £1000.
Newark and Sherwood District Council dog wardens are giving offenders Fixed Penalty Fine: DON'T BE ONE OF THEM!

Sally Gill, Head of Planning at Nottinghamshire County Council said: "Any reports of fracking in Sherwood Forest are without foundation. The County Council has not received any planning applications for shale gas development which involve fracking, either at Sherwood Forest or anywhere else in the county."
"We have not received planning applications for any oil or gas extraction in or near Sherwood Forest Country Park."
"We want to reassure residents that any planning applications for shale gas development made in Nottinghamshire that are forthcoming in the future would be widely publicised and consulted on before decisions are made on their suitability."
"Our world famous Sherwood Forest Country Park, which is also home to the Major Oak and many other ancient oaks, is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, a Special Area of Conservation and is part of the Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve. Conservation of its ecology and natural habitats are paramount and the County Council will do everything in its power to ensure its heritage and conservation is protected now and for future generations."
