Clean up all mess
Take special care to not leave dog mess on paths or areas where people walk. Remember that arable crops and grass are used for producing food for people or livestock, so always clean up in farmland too. Scented baby nappy bags are great for this as they hide the smell until you can dispose of the mess safely. Old fashioned carrier bags are ok if well tied up.
