Lockdown restrictions may have been relaxed but dog owners are reminded they still have a duty to pick up their dog's mess.
With more people likely to be out for a longer period each day the Connetables are asking dog owners to consider all other beach users.
Owners should ensure they keep their dog under control at all times and pick up their dog's mess.
Chairman of the Comité des Connétables, Deidre Mezbourian, said –
The Connétables wish to remind dog owners of the law and that they must pick up their dog's mess and dispose of it in a bin.
Connetables are receiving compaints about the condition of beaches and also parks, sand dunes and footpaths. The requirement to clean up after your dog applies to all public areas including roads and pavements.
It is an offence to dispose of plastic bags containing dog faeces other than in a waste receptacle and there are lots of bins around the island. If you can't find a bin then take the litter home with you – don't discard the bag in the hedge or trees.
A fine of up to £1,000 can be imposed on those who do not clean up after their dog.
