Green Dog Walkers

CARNOUSTIE Canine Capers entered a new phase of their campaign this week.

During Tartan Week volunteers from Carnoustie Canine Capers were on hand at Mel’s Pet Shop on High Street to meet with local dog owners and promote the Green Dog Walker initiative in partnership with Angus Council.

Volunteers have been busy raising funds and have bought 125 distinctive Green Dog Walker leads which have been given to dog owners who have taken the Green Dog Walker pledge.

Essentially, Green Dog Walkers are required to carry extra dog litter bags, and will be able to provide bags to anyone who asks, while also politely reminding those who do not clean up after themselves.

Carnoustie Canine Capers’ key partners are Carnoustie Community Council, Mel’s Pet Shop and the Wallace Veterinary Centre.

Free dog litter bags are currently being distributed to local shops which can be identified by the Green Dog Walker logo on display.
