Dog canal share the space

Dogs and owners across South Cheshire are invited to join a mass morning dog walk from Audlem Mill.

The walk will take place along the Shropshire Union Canal this Saturday June 3, starting at 10am.

The free Doggy-Do-Dahs event is being organised by the Canal & River Trust, the charity which cares for 2,000 miles of canals across England and Wales.

Freebies will be on offer to walkers, including equipment and information on ways to poop and scoop.

Ani Sutton, development and engagement manager with the Canal & River Trust, said: “We would love to see anyone who has a dog and fancies bringing their pooch for a morning scamper along the canal with like-minded animal lovers.

“Taking a walk along your local waterway is a great place to exercise and enjoy nature.

“However, dealing with dog dirt on the canal towpath is one of those perennial issues.

“What is the best way to dispose of doggy’s do-dahs?

“Advice from our environmental experts recommends that dog owners always pick up the poo in a disposable bag and either place it in a suitable public waste bin or take it home.

“Grab it, bag it, bin it!”
