Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
We had just moved into our new house in 2006, when we were immediately met with an interesting challenge: our neighbor freely takes their dog poopy on our front yard. You should explain the problem to your neighbors and ask them politely to keep their dog out of your yard. Just have a friendly and polite talk with them, introduce yourself, offer your assistance, and ask them to clean up the poop. I have two little dogs and they totally are not capable of putting out the huge piles I am finding in my yard.
Our home is our place of refuge & this dog is going to find out where the property lines are!!
I understand the sentiment behind the advice that people have given about just putting up with the crap or putting up fences (good fences do make good neighbors, after all), but at the end of the day, it IS the responsibility of dog owners to control their dogs, and you should NOT be required to alter your life or property to accommodate their negligence. I baste the poo with leftover bacon fat, the next time the dog comes around it takes its last deposit with it. Maybe the neighbors are learning through observance what a responsible dog owner is like & should be like.
I find people get too upset about dogs going on their yards (playing the devils advocate), if you care so much about your yard and your property, then you wouldn’t mind building a fence or having a hedge around the perimeter. If you allow your dog to constantly \go\ in a neighbors yard, then you are disrespecting them in a major way.
I never said it was ok for people to let their dog go on your lawn, and yea I agree with your whole warranted retribution spiel, but if you have some wide open yard basically inviting dogs to squat, its inevitable. We know: On a scale from one to 10 of enjoyable things to do, picking up your dog’s poo-poo surprises probably rank somewhere between zero and negative infinity. When it rains, dog waste left on the ground washes into storm drains and can contribute harmful bacteria to our waterways, including local lakes, streams and beaches. In fact, flushing your dog’s poop down the toilet is one of the best ways to dispose of it, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council.


Unless you’re itching to make an appointment with a plumber, do not flush dog poop that has been placed in a bag down your toilet.
Dog doo-doo can carry a crap-load (excuse the pun) of creepy crawlies, including heartworms, hookworms, roundworms and tapeworms. In some cities and counties, failure to clean up dog poop in public areas is a public offense, and can come with citations and fines. It’s become habit for many dog owners to let their pets relieve themselves, poop or pee on the edges of neighbors lawns or landscaping, but the truth of it is, MOST neighbors do not like it. People see it as a personal attack, and automatically think the dog owners single your yard out and force their dogs to go in your yard just to spite you as a person, when in fact most of the time it’s just the luck of the draw.
If you are aware of irresponsible and stubborn dog owners in your neighborhood, you can shut out the offenders with a fence or a hedge.
People as dense and ignorant as you and Matt often leave me to think that there are only stupid people left breeding in North America. Contrary to what some people might think, dog waste is not a type of fertilizer, and is actually considered by the Environmental Protection Agency to be a "nonpoint source pollutant,” placing it in the same category as herbicides, insecticides and toxic chemicals. If your home is connected to the municipal sewage system, the poop will be sent to a wastewater treatment plant and eliminated of bacteria during the sanitation process. At first, I thought about placing the poop carefully on their front step with a note stating that “your dog crapped in my yard. They might not be as direct as the neighbor you got into it with, but they most likely think irritated or angry thoughts of you and your pets. There is always going to be that one idiot as you call them that will let their dog go on your lawn. I’m in no way agreeing that a person letting their dog crap on your lawn is OK as I stated in a previous post. It would be stupid to just expect them not to if you are already aware of it, it would be like leaving your car unlocked in a bad part of town and expect it to be there in one piece by morning.


Frankly, even if you pick it up it leaves some poop behind, it stinks, it attracts flies to the yard, it’s a health hazard. Just because If I had a dog I would always clean up after them, doesn’t mean another dog owner shares the same code. I wouldn’t want to get anti theft for my car, but if I lived in a bad area I would much rather have it then have my car vandalized. Therefore it’s my responsibility to adapt and be prepared for those types of things, rather then complain and blame everyone else.
You don’t want those disease-bombs sitting around your home or public walkways, so pick up after your dog, and be sure to wash your hands after doing so, or as soon as you can. It became very clear to me: dealing with dog poop in our yards from dogs that are not our own is a universal problem. You can be pissed off at the person all you want for letting their dog poop on your yard, but it’s equally just as much your fault for letting your yard be a candidate and not having any sort of defense. I’d venture to say that poopy in our lawn is a common experience across all cultures, religions, and geographies. What I came to realize is that it wasn’t just dog poo and property rights at stake here, but our overall notion of dignity, respect, and basic human decency were being threatened. Phil show – about dogs and poopy in the yard, but also about feeling victimized, anger, revenge, salvation, vindication, and what it means to be a human. So, I present to you the advice of many random and emotional people about what to do with neighbors that have no regard about where their dog goes poopy.
