Pooper Snooper

The Village Trust has started using “Pooper Snooper”: a free mobile app designed to help communities tackle the issue of dog fouling. The Trust has marked all the existing dog waste and litter bins on a map, so that dog owners can find the nearest bin for wrapped waste. 

It is also being used to mark the location of dog fouling. Over time ‘hot spots’ will build up showing the problem areas that will be reported to the council.

    As a regular dog walker in Shotley Bridge, I have noticed a new growing problem. People who think it’s acceptable to pick up dog poo then deposit the bag in the nearest bush or tree. I would like someone to explain how this is better than flicking poo off the paths.
