Dog photo contest in Burnham-On-Sea highlights dog waste problem

A dog photo competition is being held in Burnham-On-Sea to highlight the importance of bagging and binning dog waste.

The group Litter Free Coast & Sea Somerset (LFCS Somerset) has teamed up with the makers of a new dog waste carrying solution, called Bogg, to organise the competition and are inviting entries.

Open to all local dog owners, the chosen winner will have their dog picture featured on a new Litter Free Coast & Sea Somerset leaflet and receive a new Bogg.

Entries to the competition should be photos of dogs enjoying the outdoors whether in a park, on the beach, or getting muddy in the countryside.

To enter, ‘like’ the Litter Free Coast & Sea Facebook page with a description and name of the dog and the person who is submitting the photo. Entries to the competition will close at 11am on January 13th 2017.

The winning photo will be chosen on Monday 16th January and the 15 runners up will be exhibited on the Litter Free Coast & Sea Somerset Facebook page and Bogg’s Twitter and Facebook page.

The prize for the winning dog photo will be featured in a printed leaflet. The leaflet outlines how dog owners can take care of their environment by picking up after their dog. The winner and first four runners-up will receive a Bogg.

Boggs are all-in-one, dog bag dispensers and waste carriers. It will carry full bags of poo securely and discretely until a suitable bin is reached.

Harriet Yates-Smith, Litter Free Coast & Sea Somerset Project Officer, said: "Somerset’s spectacular seven mile sandy beach is a great place to admire inspiring coastal views, paddle in the sea and exercise with our dogs. The LFCS Somerset and Bogg photo competition is a fantastic way for dog owners to showcase their furry friends enjoying this beautiful environment that we are all so lucky to enjoy."

"The leaflet featuring the winning dog will explain why we all need to play a part in making sure we bag and bin dog waste and the impact it has on the environment if we don’t. Most dog owners are responsible about bagging & binning their dog’s mess, but just one ignored poo can lead to others following suit which creates a problem."
