People must leash dogs, pick up poop

Saltair – Do Saltair residents know that dogs have to be leashed when walking your dogs? And also they have to scoop up the poop?

We were working out in the yard yesterday and a lady with two big dogs was walking down the road with her dogs unleashed. One dog came up into our yard. I tried to chase it away but to no avail. The lady called her dog a few times and he would not to go her. Finally after yelling at the dog it went off.

I told the lady that dogs must be leashed and she continued on down the road with her dog unleashed. There seems to be more and more dogs out our way and we would appreciate it if dog owners “pick up the poop” and keep their dogs under control and on-leash.

We work hard in our garden and do not want dogs running wild in it. As far as we know there is a bylaw in Saltair with regards to this, but our CVRD director tells us only if it is enforced.

Not good enough!
