    Keeping Dogs off Property (yes it is the offseason)

    So this morning I find dog poop on my sidewalk, a hazard we all face from time to time. I was wondering if anyone has had success with keeping people's dogs off their lawn/sidewalk with deterrents, etc. I don't want to harm the dogs, but do want to keep them off my property.

    Anyone find any successful remedies?

    I just make sure my dog is bigger than theirs.

    Otherwise you could talk to them, but I don't like my neighbors much.

    A fence? But you can't stop people from walking on the sidewalk unless I'm misunderstanding something.

    More then likely the sidewalk is not your property. You are responsible for maintenance and upkeep, but the City owns the property the sidewalk lays on.

    That being said, find the culprit and follow the lead of this video...

    My neighbor let's his two labs run around the front yard alot and I end up picking up about 3-4 piles a week. Super annoying.

    In my neighborhood, this might attract new friends.

    Get a trail cam to identify the offender then relocate the mess to the owner's front step.

    Re: Keeping Dogs off Propery (yes it is the offseason)

    We had this problem a few years back. I asked the owner to please keep his dog out of our yard. Didn't work. I threw turds back in his yard, put them on his front step and sidewalk. Nothing worked. I finally came up with an idea that worked. He had a car with recessed windshield wipers. I put the turds on the wipers and as luck would have it there was a heavy dew the next morning. I never had another problem!

    GET OFF MY LAWN!!

    Really though, whats the big deal? Yes, if the owners do not pick up the dog crap they are being ********. If you catch them leaving the turds behind give them a good *** chewing, if you do not catch them looks like you either have to clean up a few turds or just leave it for some good fertilizer. The people and dogs are just passing through, not moving in.

    Why should I (or the OP) have to clean up somebody else's dog s**t?

    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!

    some of the stuff in this link is a bit alarmist, but it has many of the reasons that I would be ****** off at people leaving their dogs' **** in my yard. Especially since the dog owners who are irresponsible about picking up after their pet are probably more likely to be less vigilant about things like regular worming. I don't know if Linden has young kids who play out in his yard or not, but I would not be thrilled about the prospect of my kids getting hookworms.
