With fireworks starting to go off around the town, it’s a reminder to keep dogs on the lead for now when out walking.
In previous years we’ve been inundated from dog owners whose pets had ran off or were spooked in gardens. With fireworks on sale in shops, there’s not a lot that can be done to stop these going off over the next fortnight.
One local woman told us, “I’m finding more and more when walking my very nervous dog that other people do not have their pet on a lead. Most dogs mean well but having a large dog approach my dog makes her extremely anxious. My dog has been nipped on two occasions and I have had to ask owners recently and politely to control their pet. I just thought with fireworks going off adding to her anxiety this might remind other owners to be considerate.”
