    I talked with my neighbor after stepping in one of the knee deep piles left by his pony-sized Danstiff. He is a good guy, but, they kept letting the dog loose. One day, when they had company, the dog popped over for a poo. I bagged it up and did a really nice arcing toss to the middle of their driveway, with a nice "plop" when it hit. Some of the guests were out front...and almost immediately, someone pulled in with a car running over it...a nice touch. I've only seen the dog loose one or two times since. We are still on speaking terms. ;)

    The hard way would be that you would warn your neighbor very friendly telling him he should better not let his dog into your garden because you had laid out poisonous bait against rats...:(

    Two words: Ca Tapault. Although I imagine there's a steep learning curve.


    Since the dog is just being a dog and the owner is stupid, you have to figure out a way to make the "stupid" hurt the owner and not the dog. You have to make your yard unattractive to the dog owner.
    From what I can tell, tempera paint is safe for dogs and there are other paints that people use to paint their dogs (so they don't rust, I guess).
    Anyway, maybe if you got some dog safe green tempera paint and sprinkled it in your yard, the dog would track that into the owners house.

    Before you dismiss the paint idea as ridiculous, just remember that I started with catapault.

    Or you could ask your neighbor if he's noticed any copperheads in his yard lately because you've seen one in your yard three times in the last two weeks.

    I'd just pick it up if I was the neighbor but maybe you don't let him in your yard? Easier to ask him to pick it up than watch the dog every two seconds. My dog has an electric collar so he doesn't crap on other people's property unless I walk him, but then I pick it up.

    This is why people put up fences.

    If you'd like an entertaining way to silently deal with this problem, I've got two words for you.

    Bacon grease.

    Just go out and pour a little bit on each little offending pile, and they'll soon disappear.
    No muss....no fuss.

    Plus - just think about all the poop and bacon flavored kisses they'll be giving their owners.


    Bacon......it makes everything better!!

    Chocolate is toxic to dogs and the right amount can kill it.

    If someone did that to my dog they would deeply regret it.

    Good fences make good neighbors.

    No worries bro, like I say live and let live, I'm just one of those cynical types who's sick and tired of the propaganda that oozes out of every NRA press release. Simply put the executive board are principally lying dogs who exist only for their own edification and enrichment. They do not care one iota for the safety of their members nor the public at large.

    All joking aside.

    Find a good size roadkill (like a racoon)

    Pick it up using a heavy duty garbage bag inside out.

    Put it downwind from your house, like in the far bushes.

    The dog will naturally come over and roll in it, to take on it's scent.

    Assuming it's an inside dog, the owner will then be forced to keep an eye on it, because otherwise it will need a bath 5x a day.

    "Awwwww....Rusty!!! No! No! Goshdammit, WTF is that???? "

    If the neighbor tells you about the carcass, tell him you already called the city, and they said they were coming to get it - to test for rabies.

    My dog once ate a still wrapped, 2 pound, double decker valentines day heart.

    Ate all the chocolates, including the foil from the wrapped ones.

    I called the vet:

    Vid: Hey, my dog just ate 2 pounds of chocolate candy, including the foil.
    Vet: OK, is she showing any signs of distress?
    Vid: No, she does not even seem ashamed of herself .
    Vet: Keep an eye on her, and try to keep the candy out of her reach.
    Vid: So she does not need to come in? Chocolate is not poisonous to dogs?
    Vet: Not really; although just like people, if you eat too much, you can get sick.
    Vid: I just thought....
    Vet: Yes, we get a couple phone calls a day saying that the internet said this or that....

    So the vet did not even want to scam me out of an office visit.

    Dog was fine, and crapped out the foil shards the next day.

    Dogs have died or gotten REALLY sick eating chocolate, that's been known way before the internet. Not a one size fits all warning but always err on the side of caution.

    To tell someone to give the neighbor dog chocolate though knowing it could possibly cause harm is douchebaggery x10.

    I can not use anything like that due to the fact that it's a public sidewalk in front of my house and responsible dog owners walk their dogs by my house daily. I need a way to single out his dog, and only his dog - which is not going to be easy. Looking for some way to discretely but safely annoy and discourage his dog from coming onto to my property.
