    Today I was in the park with Henrick, oh and the kids and after the actual walk Henrick likes to hide under a particular bench, so we were sitting on the bench while the kids played on the swings, then onto the field arrives a couple with their two dalmations (both off lead). As they were off lead Henrick ran up and had a bounce about then all 3 dogs ran towards a family having a picnic so I called Henrick back, he came back, they started harrassing the family for food, the child had to stand up with his arm in the air to avoid the dog getting his food. The owners just carried on walking and shouting their dogs who ignored them and continued to harrass the picnicing family. Eventually the dallys left the family and ran around the field, the owner managed to approach one of their dogs who rolled over and cowered on its back, the owner raised his lead above his head then realised he was being watched and let the dog go (explains why the dog didn't want to come). Then as we were leaving the park we saw them a little way ahead of us, one dog was tramping through the flower displays and the other had a poo and they all walked off without cleaning it up. Honestly its a lovely park and people like that are going to get all dog owners banned, ok rant over if you've managed to read through all this you did well:D.

    maybe you could make your local dog warden aware of this and they can keep a look out for these people,

    I told the park warden that they were walking away without cleaning it up and she just shrugged, the dog warden is often in the park so I think I will mention it to her when I see her.
