Re: Keeping Dogs off Propery (yes it is the offseason) That's the thing- you don't have to! It's not nuclear waste- it's not going to kill anyone. It's part of the "deal" when you live in town. I have had dogs crap in my yard before, am I happy about it- hell no, but you know what- I deal with it like an adult and move on with my life. It's really not that hard! If you absolutely can't handle it- move to the country!
