  • Owners who do not clean up after their dogs could be subject to a fine of between 120 and 700 euros

Torrox town hall announced last week that owners who do not clean up after their dogs could be subject to a fine of between 120 and 700 euros. Mayor of Torrox Óscar Medina said that the law is already in place but that there will be a "few weeks' grace" during which fines will not be issued.

Local Police have been charged with informing pet owners of the changes and issuing warnings.

Bottles, which should be filled with water and vinegar, are freely available from tourist information and town hall offices in Torrox town and costa and El Morche.
