Resident Dog Owners & Dog Walkers

MMRA have installed a Mutt Mitt Dog Foul Bag Dispenser outside Eds to help reduce incidence of dog fouling in Mount Merrion.

With everyone spending so much time in their gardens and many working from home, please be mindful of neighbours. Many dogs do not like to being left alone in gardens for lengthy periods and in some cases the presence of foxes will give rise to certain dog breeds reacting with sustained barking.

There are many reasons why a dog may be barking and dog owners may not realise that it’s happening, the extent of it, or that it may be a disruption to others. Any concerns should be addressed in a friendly manner by speaking with your neighbour.
