As a dog owner, I can't believe anyone doesn't clear up after their pooch, but some people obviously just need a gentle reminder.

Walk past VIP Pets on Sun Street and you'll find out all about the Dogs Trust Big Scoop campaign.

Alex Jackson, Head of Campaigns at Dogs Trust says: “Dog poo is still one of the biggest complaints received by local councils every year, with 81,000 complaints received from members of the public last year alone, so it’s important that everyone is aware of how simple disposing of dog mess can be.”

There are just eight locations around the UK that are encouraging dog owners to pick up after their dogs and to remind them that 'any bin will do' when getting rid of doggy doo.

VIP Pets is proud to be part of our local community and they're supporting the capaign with free poo bags for dog owners - just look out for the bright yellow posters!

If you are lucky enought to share your home with a dog, pop in to VIP Pets on Sun Street and speak to Terence, Adrian or Ellie - as well as poo bags, they offer a fabulous selection of dog treats and needs, with a pampering grooming service!
