Would dog owners please please clean up after your dogs when you are out walking especially from Candy’s up to Coollattin Road, but particularly by the school and church, its a discrase when you are out walking to see what dog dirt is along the path but especially at night when you can not see and have walked into it and then you have to get into your car, so please please clean up after your dogs or if not bring them a different route, please.
