The owners have been caught red-handed by Benidorm’s bew dog patrol who takes care of cases related to dog care.

The patrol was established because Benidorm wanted to increase against careless dog owners and the municipality has received a total of 25.000€ from fines from the dog patrol.

The majority of the fines have been given for not removing dog droppings but also for lack of required muzzles and microchips. According to spanish law all dogs must be microchipped and dangerous dogs must wear a muzzle in public places.
