Are councils coming down too hard on dog owners?

I almost feel like I'm being asked to apologise for owning a dog in the UK

Ryan O'Meara

A kennel club is claiming an increasing number of councils are using ASBO-style orders to ban and restrict dog owners from walking their pets in parks and public open spaces.

We sent Katy Rickitt to Daventry where she spoke to a professional dog walker who thinks the restrictions are a bit too much, as well as a member of the District Council who insists the rules needed to be brought in due to a small number of people who won't clear up after their dogs.

In the studio editor of K9 magazine Ryan O'Meara told us he feels the councils are using bans and restrictions when less extreme measures could be used.
