When I had a dog, I had a designated place in my own yard for him to do his business, then we went on a walk. What makes people think that letting their dog pee on someone's property is okay?

As a dog owner, I understand your concerns. But, it's sort of an accepted custom to allow dogs to pee anywhere, and to always clean up the poop.

As a cat owner with cats that go outside, well, I've talked to my cats about only pooping in our garden, but they refuse to listen.

Because you haven't mined it properly?

Get a pitbull with a chain that comes within inches of the sidewalk.....that works really well in keeping little hor'devores off your pristeen pee-filled grass!

Great idea LibertyWarrior. Keep dog poop out of your yard by getting a dog and chaining it in your yard.

Why does God allow birds to poop on my car. That is so rude of Him!

Is this the same issue as the Man peeing in Neighbor's yard Topic??

And leaves & pollen covering my car. Simply unacceptable.

What's stupid: the pitbull or people letting their dogs go anywhere they please?

Trust me, a pit bull chained in front of the yard would make my little dog more likely to pee there. My little guy loves those pit bulls and thinks he's one. They'd be best buds in no time.

I guess I just don't understand this? If the pet has an owner, the pet should be doing it's business on the owner's property.

I don't want a cat, if someone does, they should keep it on their own property-if they don't have enough property to let their cat "roam" then have an indoor cat or maybe just don't have one. I don't want their cat in my yard. I don't like stepping in its poop. I don't like it peeing on my flowers. Why, because it's not my cat- it's theirs.

As for dogs (which, incidentally, I really do like), I would never assume that it was okay for me to let my pet use someone's property as a toilet. Taking a dog for a walk does not mean letting it pee on everyone's property- let it go in its own yard, then go for a walk.

Still confused as to how/why it's "accepted". The animal is only allowed to pee on someone's lawn if the owner lets it.

How can people be that clueless and inconsiderate (not meaning you-unless you let your dog pee on my lawn :), just in general)

How does this relate to pet owners being inconsiderate?

obviously, God is inconsiderate for allowing His birds to poop on my car, then.

I am truly wondering what is behind the thinking of pet owners that find this practice okay. If you are disinterested you can, of course, always move on to something else.

How does this relate? Are the birds someone's pet that they are responsible for?

I'm not saying it's "right", but simply a generally accepted practice. Yes, the dog pee is bad for the lawn. It's hard to control where a dog pees; we do have neighbors in the area who don't like dog pee on their lawn and we avoid walking the dog along their house. The cat issue is a difficult one because outside cats generally roam outside without any supervision. Sure, one can keep their cats indoors (we have had both types over the years).

San Francisco will probably be the first to call for mandatory pet diapers.

Might not be a bad idea methinks at the moment because I was within the past hour a victim of stepping in dog poop somewhere around Market and Fremont in the City of Saint Francis. And I am most displeased about this. (Usually it's just human poop ... who the heck is walking their dog in the financial district ... probably the same people who poop on the walk themselves).

I'm curious as to how you knew about the neighbors that you mentioned- did they talk with you/someone or did they just flip out one day when the dog was peeing? :-)

They've made a comment to either the kids or me. And we respect our neighborhood and neighbors so we comply. Last year, I was walking the dog and I suddenly heard someone yell out "Excuse me". I looked up and a woman was at a 2nd floor window. She then said "Is your dog going to pee on my lawn?" So, utilizing all of the skills that I've acquired while obtaining my PhD in sarcasm, I replied "I don't know. Let me ask her." So, she slammed the window down, and we now keep the dog away from her lawn.

BTW: everyone who has mentioned it (maybe 4 people) have been very polite.

I'm wondering why it matters? I've had dog pee kill a patch in the lawn, but only after my dog peed there three times a day every day and only after an extended amount of time. Just seems like having the occasional dog randomly peeing in your lawn is an odd thing to get so upset about.

Depending on the density of the neighborhood and the amount of dogs, it can be a lot of pee. And for female dogs in heat, the pee can be really bad for the lawn.

And what about possums? Who's going to stop them from peeing in your yard? And squirrels and rabbits and birds? Who will stop them I want to know?
