Just wondered what dog lovers' thought of the amount of dogs on the beaches here, particularly Seacliff/Brighton beaches. We were disgusted to see a guy walking his dog on Seacliff beach and not picking up after it had done its business. I was fuming and wished that I had confronted him now. Most dog walkers do have the obligatory plastic bags and do clean up after their dogs, but not all. How can a dog owner not take this responsibility seriously, especially on a beach?
At Coolangatta beach in the Gold Coast - a beautiful beach - there are no dogs allowed at all and that was great for us dogless folk as no-one defied the notice. It seems though that people here don't take much notice of the signs at the beach stating the times that dogs are allowed etc. Any views on this subject would be appreciated.
PS I do like dogs, but not their mess!
