I really think you should talk to them.  You could end up getting in trouble with the city if they come out and see that their is dog poo in your yard because they will assume that it is yours.

Maybe leave a note on her door?  And if she doesn’t respond after doing that a few times, maybe you should report her to the city.  Unfortunately, I don’t think she will just stop on her own since she has done it already.

WOW. I would collect it all and leave it on her doorstep with a sweet card saying “I just realized you forgot some stuff at our house! Have a GREAT weekend!”

Can’t call the cops if you take pictures of the dog doing it when she doesn’t know you’re looking–as soon as they see the pics of her and the dog pooping on YOUR lawn, they’re going to laugh her out of the neighborhood.

I’d seriously pile it up on her lawn. Her dog, her problem, especially if she keeps trying to avoid you. Not cool and she knows its wrong, but she also thinks you won’t open your mouth!

I think you should mention to her that you would appreciate it if she would come clean up the mess her dog has made as you would hate to call the police because in most areas it is a crime as it’s considered littering and if she doesn’t follow through you can do what my Fiance and I do: One of the neighbors tosses garbage and dog poo into the big field in front of FIL’s house (their field) and never cleans it up, so we just started going down there every so often and tossing it all back at once…we try to time it right before a party or before a football game because they watch them from their hottub in the backyard. Or if you don’t want to be that confrontational maybe just leave a note and a bag/box of “doggie bags” from like Petco/Smart saying that maybe she could use those to keep the neighborhood clean. I hate it when people do this kind of stuff.

My dad went so far as to put a “hot” wire around our yard for about a month because dogs were literally killing our expensive boxwoods. The dogs bumped into it and yelped a little and didn’t come back and miraculously it was much cleaner because people couldn’t complain about it since their dogs were offleash when it happened and in our area at least, that’s illegal.

That sucks! I hate it when people at our apt. complex don’t pick their dog mess up. Maybe you could kindly say something to them next time you see them walking the dog?

If you don’t feel comfortable doing what the above gals have said – which I totally would feel comfortable but understand if you don’t – what about taking a picture of your front yard, encolsing it w/ a note and putting it in her mailbox?

If you don’t say anything it will most likely degrade from here, I mean what happens if you have kids and they want to play in the yard, but she complains about the noise? Are you going to tell them they can’t play outside because of this lady? I guess you could think of it this way…if she was walking and eating a snickers bar everyday and threw the wrapper into your yard, would you say something or would you let it happen because you don’t want to upset her. She probably told you the story about the other college kids to scare you into not saying anything. If nothing else, I say check out the neighbors yards, maybe she’s letting her dog do the same to them. I mean if everyone complains she might just change her tune.

You should really talk to her because she’s the only rude, heathen one here. Usuing your front yard as her doggy-litter is definitely NOT something that civilized people do. You should be mad at her, not the other way around. But I think talking it out in a casual way would be best. Maybe even try baking cookies and givig those to her while bringing up the dog situation?

What’s that saying … “sugar is always better than vinegar”?

It’s probably going to take a LOT of sugar, this one sounds like she’s made of a lot of vinegar. πŸ™‚
