A 20-STRONG ‘dog squad’ is taking on disobedient dog owners in Marbella.

The pet owners are being targeted in a crack down on those breaking strict bylaws with 440 summonses being issued in just 30 days.

The most common offence involved dogs not being kept on leads, while others included owners not clearing up after their animal and dogs not being muzzled.

Fines ranged from 75 to 3,000 euros depending on the offence.

The most serious breach of the law involved 24 summonses for owning potentially dangerous breeds that weren’t registered or did not have the necessary paperwork.
