Preston plans dog ban

Anyone following dog news on the web can’t help but notice a trend in the States: dog parks are springing up across the small towns and cities of the USA.

Here in grim old Blighty, Preston City Council is considering something different: dog-free zones in parks.

Actually, Preston’s plans raise a serious point: dog muck left by irresponsible owners causes no end of problems, not least for children. It’s sad, though, that some dog owners are so lazy that they ruin it for everyone else.
