Cliffe Avenue

Lightcliffe

Halifax

I’ve put a sign on the pavement outside where I live which reads;

Did your dog leave this?

Would you like it on your hands – no?

Neither does a wheelchair user. Clean up after your dog!

We have a problem with irresponsible dog owners who allow their dogs to foul pathways in and around the snicket at the end of Cliffe Avenue, Lightcliffe.

There are many responsible dog owners but it’s the minority who are allowing this unsociable and potentially infection-causing mindless act to happen.

I call on responsible dog walkers to help ‘shop’ those who give dog walkers a bad reputation as its highly likely they will be about at the same times.

As a self-pushing wheelchair user the times I have had to clean off fouling from my wheels beggars belief.
