    There's a spray (or powder, can't remember) you can buy that's supposed to 'discourage' dogs from entering an area. We tried it with our dog and our garden. It didn't work in our case but might be worth a shot.

    Yeah, I read about it. It is called liquid fence, or something similar which is supposed to mask smells. Not sure if it would actually work, and this hasn't been an ongoing problem yet. The psychology of it is interesting to me as people react very intensely to this issue. You'd think I was discussing bikes on the road or speeding cameras.

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

    We have 2 dogs, we always have at least 3 bags on us and always pick up after them. We have lived in 5 different towns in the past 5 or so years (5 states) for that matter. I would say the best one so far in terms of neighbors respecting neighbors-poop issues, has been Madison, WI. They require sidewalks scooped within 24 hours of snow fall or a ticket, and I haven't found a turd in my yard yet (live on a corner lot).

    If you really want to discourage the dogs on your yard, put up a sign. I have seen them before, as a dog owner I always think that person with the sign is an a-hole and probably has 15-20 cats. But at least when I see a sign like that I just simply walk on the other side of the road.

    I agree stepping on a turd sucks, but I grew up on a farm, my brother and I would get in all out brawls in the middle of cleaning the barn so I have been in worse. Good luck with your issues, hope posting on here has restrained you from doing something you would regret :)

    In defense of the Big ten network, it is tough to find Iowa games anymore when we aren't embarrassed."

    Meh...is offseason...the people who get all worked up about Royce's sweat output or how some media person insulted our poor cyclones need something to get all worked up about. As I get older, I've gotten better at identifying the people I encounter who seem to be walking around looking for reasons to be unhappy....and then I try and eliminate them from my life.

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

    I have a golden lab, and as some of you have stated, there is sometimes surprising amounts of feces in her (I always bring two bags with me, but there was one three bag walk).
    Anyway, I actually have a question about the bag of poop. The worst part isn't picking it up, it's having to carry it around. Would anyone here have a problem with the dog owner bagging up the mess and then going to the trashcan (assuming it's outside) to throw it away? I've never done this but it wouldn't bother me if someone used mine for this. Just wondering...

    If a dog owner threw that in my trash can I would most likely throw it back at the owner.

    Okay, that's what I suspected. Since I have a dog, it wouldn't bother me, but I figured it could bother others. That being said, it would be nice if there were more trash cans on bike trails.

    I hear dogs really don't like it when the smell other dog's pee.

    You should try that.

    Our normal route is down a street with schools on one side so there are three trash cans along the sidewalk before we get back into our neighborhood.

    We have been known to throw it in the next can in the neighborhood the night before trash day. It is out of your house, I am not rummaging through your stuff and you are not paying by the ounce. Get over yourself.

    I delivered newspaper' s in high school. I always laughed at the people that requested you not walk on their lawn. More power to you but it is your lawn not pebble beach.

    Maybe they knew how much dog poop was on their lawn and they were advising you not to walk on their lawn.

    Yeah, I would say that blog is 'going to the ends'! I understand that those things exist and it 'could' be a problem, but I don't remember a time where I read in the newspaper or saw on tv someone- adult or child- got sick from dog poo.

    All I am saying that if the OP is just worried about "a hazard we all face from time to time" (his words) there are probably 100 other things that he uses or does on a daily basis that is as or is more harmful to himself or his family than some poo in the yard "from time to time." Also I said in a previous post that- living in town you are prone to this happening "from time to time"- and the only way to 100% prevent it is living in the country.
