Anyone caught failing to clear up after their dog will face a £75 fine
A reminder to dog owners to clean up after their pets is being sprayed onto pavements in parts of Lancashire to tackle dog fouling.
Officers from Chorley Council are using stencils to leave the message in 'hotspot' areas to remind people to clean up their dog's mess.
Over the past few weeks the council said it had received a steady rise in the number of fouling complaints.
The stencils are spray-painted and will wash away in the rain.
Councillor Eric Bell, of Chorley Council, said: "Dog fouling is becoming more and more of a problem and we wanted to try something a bit different to remind people that it is an offence not to clean up after their dog.
"Dog dirt makes the place look a mess and it's horrible if you stand in it and then end up walking it into your house.
"I know the vast majority of dog owners are responsible and take their dog mess home or put it in a bin and I would urge others to follow their example."
Those caught failing to clear up after their dogs will face a fixed penalty notice and £75 fine.
