Good Glossop Dogs - Say NO to dogs on leads in parks
Good Glossop dogs is a group of responsible dog owners who oppose the proposals by High Peak Council to introduce Dog Control Orders, which will mean that dogs need to kept on leads in the majority of Manor Park and all of Howard Park as well as other areas of the borough.
PLEASE SIGN OUT PETITION AND ALLOW DOGS THE FREEDOM TO BE PROPERLY EXERCISED.
We fully support any measures to eliminate dog fouling in the borough. However keeping dogs on leads at all times within the public parks will not resolve the issue of dog fouling, when the biggest problem is clearly on the pavements where virtually all dog owners have their dogs on leads.
As responsible dog owners we are fastidious at clearing up our dog mess. Exercising our dogs off lead is vital for the health & wellbeing of us and our dogs. The parks in Glossop are safe and convenient for many, particularly those who are older or live on their own. Dogs on four foot leads would not be vigorously exercised which would lead to more potential dog behaviour problems.
The exclusion of dog owners from using the vast majority of Manor Park and as well as Howard Park seems punitive and unfair to responsible dog owners.
