A polite request to dog owners please

We’ve been asked to post a polite message up asking people to please keep close control of their dogs on the playing field and park area. “Just out with my 2 year old and a dog bounded up and knocked him over – we were in the park area that isn’t fenced off. He was really frightened. The owners were about 100m way down the path. They couldn’t see the dog and didn’t offer any apology.”

We’ve been told that this happens quite a lot in the areas where children are able to play, and although most owners are thoughtful of the children there are still lots who aren’t.
