Dog Crap

I'm getting pissed. I have lived at the same place for 20 years and never had a problem. Now this year somebody has been walking their dog and allowing in to crap in my yard. We do have a leash law but somebody just plain doesn't give a hoot. Any ideas would be great.

If you can catch them in the act, jump in their face. I assume this hasn't happened or you would have. If you can find out who the owner is, you could gather up the poop and deposit it on their front porch or car hood.

 

Or a stunt I heard about when I was a kid, but never witnessed or participated in (honest!). Put the poop in a paper bag, go to the offenders house, light the bag on fire, ring the doorbell and run. They'll of course try to stomp out the fire, thereby getting burnt shit all over their shoes. :HaHa:

PS...the offer for a beer still stands.

Do you know who it is? Our neighbor a while ago used to let their dog roam free. It used to crap in my other neighbors yard so they would just scoop it up and drop in on the owners front doorstep.

In my experience, it's incredibly rare to meet a dog owner who does. Though I'll admit to a personal bias, as I think anyone who doesn't have the common decency to put their dog(s) inside, on a leash/chain or behind a fence should not only lose custody of the animal but be beaten extensively and vigorously about the head with a large, heavy, dense blunt object.

 

The only thing I like less than dogs is irresponsible dog owners. If you do discover the culprit, I suggest giving their home and/or car a new shade of pleasantly-scented organic siding.

I'm in a very weird mood currently... if you identify the culprit (well, better its keeper - the dog's not to blame after all) you might want to sow something - in secret - into her lawn.

 

Giant Hogweed

 

That stuff is pure poison, not of the "kills at once" but of the "painful and disgusting" category. And once it takes hold of a place it's damn hard to eradicate again.

Some of this damn weed is currently growing between the railroad tracks at my local station. Maybe this year's Fall I'll secure some seeds, just in case I might want to do the very thing I suggested above. :fdevil:

 

Of course this is a rather long-term plan for revenge, you might want something quicker... ;)

That's a tough one. Dogs do tend to go where they have gone before. There are some repellents you can buy that will deter the dog from coming into your yard but they can be expensive. Dogs do not like the scent of citronella. We use it in spray form to separate fighting dogs as well as a means to keep dogs from attacking us. It's also used in bark collars. I don't know what it might do to your yard and plants or even how long the scent might last but it might be something to look into. It will not harm the animal.

 

It really is an issue with the owner and not the dog. If you can find out who owns the dog that would be a lot easier. I had the same problem and while I thought I knew who it was who couldn't prove it. I was almost to the point of putting out a sign with doggie bags attached to get the message across, but finally it stopped on it's own.

I saw a movie once (forget which one) where a guy was trying to escape prison. To elude the hound dogs he sprinkled cayane pepper around his trail, causing the dogs a painful surprise. Since dogs sniff around before they poop, this might work.

 

Dunno if it's harmful to the dog though. I'm also not sure what, if anything, it does to grass.

Perhaps an electric fence would do the trick; or better yet, one of those hard-to-detect electric fences?

Is it possible that it's a stray dog and doesn't belong to anybody? If that's the case you could call animal control. Of course, you could call animal control even if it's somebody's pet they just happen to let roam around the neighborhood. Nothing is more hilarious than seeing someone who knowingly lets their dog roam the streets getting slapped with several fines for failing to take proper care of their animal. But I wouldn't do anything to hurt or kill the animal. It's just doing what instinct tells him to do.

If it's a stray dog, call the ASPCA. They're good people.

 

Don't be too confrontational about it. That only makes people angrier and you'll probably in the long run end up in a court case of some kind after vendetta attacks of increasing intensity reach a climax. Trust me, you do NOT want to have personal issues with a neighbor.

 

Electric fences only work if the dog itself has a collar thar reacts to it. You might just want to keep a 24-hour vigil in place to see who is doing it, and then speak to them personally. That seems the only plausible solution. DON'T hurt the dog; it's not its fault.

Thurisaz, that is a purely evil suggestion.

 

 

 

 

I love it.

 

:fdevil:

 

Considering that I've survived a close encounter of the 3rd kind with this accursed weed I wonder if anyone who hasn't been close to it can understand just how evil it really is :wicked:
