Letter: Langley dog owners should show respect and pick up poop

Pick up after your pet: it’s the law, notes Sandra Cameron.

Dear Editor,

On April 12, as we do most days recently, we took our three-month-old puppy for a walk down the dike at Nathan Creek, on River Road in Glen Valley.

In the first quarter of our walk I counted over a dozen dog poops not picked up by owners.

This is why dogs are not allowed in many areas: because of irresponsible pet owners who do not pick up after their dogs. Our vet has also said it is a major health risk for puppies still going through their vaccinations.

The Township provides the bags and the disposal cans to put them in.

Pick up after your pet.

It’s the law, but also, it’s showing respect for your fellow pet owners.

Sandra Cameron, Langley
