What if I see someone break the rules?

Stragent Dog Park was established with the concept that dog owners would be responsible for policing themselves and each other.  If you see someone who forgets the rules (perhaps doesn't clean up after their dog) politely introduce yourself, remind them of the rule and thank them when they comply with the rule.
