I wouldn't generalize to say that 'most people' don't care. I own 2 dogs & I never leave the house with them without at least 4 poop bags (just in case). And they aren't allowed to EVER do their business on anyone's lawn. Some of us are responsib
So true! I get so frustrated when I'm out walking my dog in the park and see dog poop everywhere...it makes the rest of us look bad!
Darned trolls voting decent answers here down, they must be an offender that commits the very offense we are discussing. Oh well, maybe they can think about what's being discussed and change their ways.
I wish HubPages would take down the voting. I get my answers voted down sometimes and wonder why. I think it's like you said. Probably someone with anger issues.
You are a kind soul to spend your money, time, & effort in trying to not confront others or hurt their feelings. I am usually this type of person but when pleasantries don't work I act assertively. Good tip, don't know why anyone voted it down.
I had no idea that coffee grounds could discourage animals from 'going' on your lawn...I may have to try this. Thanks for the tip!
It sounds like you have neighbors that live by the "do as I say, not as I do" creed. I hope they try to become better neighbors.
One of the neighbors actually did that - scooped it up, put it in a bag, knocked on the door, handed it to the owner and said, "Here's your cat sh*t, lady!" She still let the cat out every morning to go potty in the neighbor's flower bed. Sad.
I find that this is often more of an issue with cats than dogs...because a lot of city bylaws allow cats to wander wherever they like. Which is frustrating when they decide to make your lawn/garden an outdoor litter box...
