A Leeds pet superstore is to hand out free poop bags to customers in a bid to prevent dog fouling.
The Pets at Home branch at the Crown Point Shopping Park will allow each dog owner to take one roll of disposable bags away with them until the offer ends on December 16.
Councils across the country are cracking down on irresponsible pet owners by slapping large penalties on those caught failing to clean up after their animals.
Store manager Natalie Mason said:
“We know that the vast majority of local pet owners are responsible and do pick up after their dogs but we also understand that when rushing out to take your dog on a walk, it’s easy to forget to pack a bag.
“That’s why we’ll be offering one free pack of bags to anyone who needs it so they can continue to set great examples and encourage others to follow their lead.”
