Threat Of Fines For Dog Owners At Popular Shaftesbury Walking Spot

New signs warning that dog owners could be fined if their pets are found off-lead have been put up on Shaftesbury’s Castle Hill Green.

Dorset Council’s website lists areas where dogs must be on their leads. They include cemeteries, council allotments and marked playing fields. But it’s unclear why these fines have been applied to this popular Shaftesbury location.

Dave Toulson gets reaction from Cllr Derek Beer and dog walker Amanda Kenny of All Creatures Animal Services.
