They continue saying, “It is forbidden to let the dogs loose and to leave them alone in public streets, do not go outside without carrying a bag for excrement, if you do not have yours yet, stop by the Town Hall and pick it up for free. Let’s avoid creating infection, let’s give the visitor a good image of the municipality, let’s be civic.
And remember … Your dog, your responsibility.”
