Disgusted to find dog poo on the astro turf at the communal pool in La Finca Golf this morning, I hope the dog owners feels really proud of themselves.

There has been numerous posts about this sort of thing over the past year or two and dog owners don't care.......

okay it's just my wife have cleared up some cat poo from our pool area, on la finca, not much can be done given they roam about. We've had cats and dogs as pets but our cat was very old and was house/ garden bound.

If you know which owner might be responsible report it to your president as apart from access animals are unlikely to be allowed in communal areas.

It has been reported along with photograph, dogs are not allowed in pool area and all dogs must be on a lead within the communal areas, unfortunately there are a few who choose to ignore the rules.

Hard to understand how they can poo from a pushchair, what’s all that about.

Not strange at all, more dogs in pushchairs than children.

Yes, truly disgusting behaviour. What is it about astro turf that makes some people think it's a place to let your dog do a poo? Actually saw some on a children's playground here. Jaw dropping!

It should be said, however, that the situation in Algorfa village has improved enormously in the four years I've been here. Some hefty fines were handed out to the transgressors; and this did the trick. The mayor here is a top guy.

Most dog owners here are ultra responsible...I actually saw a guy the other day washing his dog's urine away using a squeezy water bottle. Never seen that before...total respect to him.

In conclusion, Alba 5, it seems the best way to deal with these people is to hit them where it hurts the most...in their pockets. It worked well in Algorfa village, it will work in La Finca.
