I need to STOP neighbor's dogs from pooping on my new lawn
Apr 4, 2007 - Keeping the neighbor's dogs from pooping on the grass can be a challenge
People can be very rude about letting their dogs use others property for relieving themselves. I knew someone was using my lawn for pooping and had a certain neighbor in mind. I decided to check my video cameras one day and found the evidence. I saw my neighbors dog on my lawn in the exact stop where there was poop the day before. I walked down to address this to my neighbor. Even though we had him on camera he totally denied it,but it has never happened since. Funny he was coming from chuech that day. Why bother if you can't be honest about simple things.
p.s. why isn't Laguna Oaks listed as a neigborhood?
I also live in a rural area and my neighbor has 3 dalmations. He takes one or all for walks in the area and they are not on leashes. He doesn't carry a bag for poop, and they either trail behind him or ahead of him by a property or two. My other neighbors complain about this man and his dogs. We first moved here two years ago, and it infuriated me when I first noticed it. He always seemed to be entering his driveway a few lots down from mine, and his dog was still in my front lawn or back yard doing its duty. We put a wire fence around the backyard, so the invasions there have stopped. The dogs use to run through the property next to us and all over our back yard. We now have our dog out there, so it serves two purposes. Ours in, his out. His dogs still invade the front yard. I usually walk out when I see him or his dogs coming, or I stand in my front window until he's gone. He usually is nosy and likes to look around, so he can't miss me standing there. Last year, he was out and I ran out to chase the pooping dog out of my yard and he made a commnent that his dog wasn't mean. I think his dogs seems nice/friendly although I'm not going to test it out, but I think he is rude to let them run on my yard. They obviously don't respond to his commands. When I walk my dog, I take a bag, and he's on a leash, even though he listens well. I thought about spraying the dog with the hose. We're on a well, so there's not a ton of pressure. Maybe I should consider spraying the neighbor instead. I've seriously thought about carrying the shovel of poop down the street, but it happens to often.

I don't want to harm the dog, just keep him off my lawn
Stop the odor of dog poop at its source and keep other people's dogs away from your lawn with a safe, non-toxic dog repellent. You can obtain a variety of products designed to produce an odor unpleasant only to dogs. One brand is Farnam's Repel Away. The gel crystals used in dog repellent products don't harm lawns and will not sicken animals if accidentally consumed.I’m at the end of my rope with my neighbors. I’m tired of coming out of my car and stepping on dog poop. I want to sue him for every pair of shoe that I ruin from stepping on his dogs mess. What do you do when they just refuse to listen to you? Once their dog chased my daughter around the car and now she fears dogs. My husband yelled at him and told him there was a leash law and if he doesnt follow it that we are gonna call the cops on him. The neighbors response was, “Oh, you dont wanna do that!!” Last summer they used their backyard as a training area for pitbulls. They had between 10-15 dogs coming around. I called the cops everytime this happened but the cops showed up after everyone had left. I complained to the owner of the house and he said he was gonna put a stop to the fighting but now I think their way of getting back at us now is by having their dogs poop all over our lawn and having them run around without a leash. In my case, talking with neighbors doesnt work, it only causes more drama. I will try the chile pepper to see if that works but there has to be something else I can do. Any other suggestions? Is there a site that I can go to that has all the dog laws for Illlinois? Maybe I can print it out and send it to my neighbor.
