Curbing downtown LA's dogs

New signs throughout downtown LA implore dogs to watch where they do their business.

More people moving into downtown Los Angeles also means more dogs. But where are our canine friends welcome to do their business?

Downtown LA's Business Improvement District recently installed signs downtown featuring a picture of a dog raising its leg and doing his business with a big red line through it.

The sign says "NO dog waste on anything metal, a building, a planter, the sidewalk," but there aren't a lot of other options downtown, so what's a dog owner to do?

The person behind the signs, Blair Besten, of the Historic Downtown Business Improvement district joins the show with more.
