Dog shit in front garden
Right this has probably been done before and I’ve probably sat sniggering… but now it’s happening to me it sucks!
Keep getting dog shit in my front garden and I don’t own a dog… neither do any of my neighbours for about 10 houses around. The first time I noticed I stood in the flipping thing!!!!
Short of buying cctv or sitting waiting with my air rifle is there much I can do?
Trouble is I have no idea when it is happening, my front gardwn is pretty big so often may not notice it for a few days after it happens.
Rather angry!!!!Posted 6 months ago

Don’t seem very chilled to me
It’s actually an ironic nickname that was given me at uni because I was always losing my shit. True story! Not the 76 bit, that’s my lucky number… not my birth year which is annoying as it ages me 6 years.Posted 6 months ago
We get fox shit in ours. While its the same as dog shit it somehow makes its less bad. I quite like having the foxes around

This would be fine. It’s more the owners lack of respect that has me angry. Picking up for pooh occasionally would be fine.

A friend of mine had this. He bought a motion activated wildlife camera. This tecorded the time that a lovely man walked to his garden and let his dog off the lead to lay its eggs in his garden. Two consecutive days showed it was at 4am. He then sat in his car and set his alarm for the time the offender arrived. Whilst dog was mid-poop he got out and told the owner this was a pattern and he had video evidence. It stopped.Posted 6 months agoSteelfreakMember
We regularly get faecal matter deposited in our garden.
Sometimes it’s obviously a cat, but often in is of indeterminate origin (could be large cat, small dog, badger, fox etc).
Recently a friend of the kids stepped in some and walked it everywhere, which was far from amusing (o how I seethed as I cleaned it up). If this were the USA I would currently be camped out with a bazooka!Posted 6 months agofunkrodentSubscriber
Fox shot is black and sticky. Almost tar-like substance. Very individual smell. My dog used to think it was the canine equivalent of Yves St Laurent. Which meant many repeats of indignant dog being chucked in a river. If it’s small, thin and brown it’s probably a cat. If it’s large and piled up and drinks it’s probably a dog. As suggested before your best bet is to try to catch dog and owner in the act. Good luck with that though, probably means a few early mornings, some others dog owners are early birds..Posted 6 months agoCountZeroMember
Why don’t you pick it up and dispose of it? Probably take less than two minutes.
Why should anyone have to dispose of someone else’s dog shit dumped on their lawn?Posted 6 months ago
Next time I walk past your house I’ll take a dump on your doorstep, as it seems you’re amenable to havingyour property used as a shithouse.timbaMember
On a couple of occasions I’ve seen (different) dogs do this, gone out and the (different) owner has said, “It’s ok, I’ll pick it up”Posted 6 months ago
Why do they think that it’s acceptable, regardless of the intention to clean up (or not)?
Irresponsible dog owners with extending dog leads, pah!5plusn8Member
I have ultrasonic repeller things in the front garden. They have been effective on cats dogs and foxes to date. Unfortunately they have all started crapping on the pavement or road near where they used to crap. Out of range of the device. At least I can hose that area downPosted 6 months ago
