THE old problem of dog faeces that has raged for years. Some people will remember me running the Knutsford Dog Training Club for many years.

There we taught the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Training Scheme.

This taught cleaning up after your dogs and the members were given bags to do this at their initial course.

I am now retired and have some walking problems. In fact my dog runs with my mobile scooter until we get to my local field where we run (and play). This field does provide bags and a bin to put them in.

Sometimes my legs are tired when we have gone round the field and my ‘poo bag’ is left behind.

My dog Truce goes back and picks it up and brings it to me. It seems it is easier to train dogs to pick up poo bags than human beings.
