The City of Toronto is considering a bylaw for residents to stoop, scoop and then carry their dog's poop home instead of placing it in park garbage bins.
Obviously, I see the reasoning. There's supposed to be 500,000 Dogs in Toronto, and none of them are toilet-trained. And I've often thought that city dogs can't be as healthy or well socialized as their suburban/rural counterparts just because they do not get to be around other people and other animals as frequently, so I support leash-free zones and other means of making Toronto canine friendly. However, if I were a professional dog walker I would be certainly "raising a stink" about this proposed by-law. You often see them wandering around with a half dozen animals on separate leashes. Carrying eight lbs of poop back to the office with you would certainly raise the cost of doing business.
