Neighbor Walks Dog and Allows It to Pee and Poop in My Yard?

This young man who lives behind me on another street walks his dog (on leash) around the block which includes my street. I have nicely asked the owner not walk his dog in my yard and he called me all sorts of names and still intentionally walks into my yard to pee on my plants and trees. My husband sees him do this after I asked him not to, then when my husband tells him not to the young man didn't run his mouth, but intentionally lead the dog over and had him pee on my husband's work van on the side that we could not see. How can I stop the dog from walking into the yard?

I had this problem and spoke to the neighbor asking for him to either pick up after his dog, or walk him somewhere else. I got ignored. So every day I took a shovel and picked up the poop and set just over the property line where people walk along the edge of the road. Pretty soon there was quite a pile of poop to where you had to walk around it or step in it. Our walker got the message and now walks with a plastic bag to pick up after his dog. And he still walks on the other side of the street.

Did you think of a fence? That would keep all animals out and protect your garden.


Or just pick up and save poop in grocery bag and when full deposit it on dog owners porch! Works like a charm!

Not all cities allow front yard fences because of new laws plus not everyone wants a fence. I agree with Lizzyanny to return the deposit to it's rightful owner. If this guy dropped a $100 bill he would want it back, so treat the poop like it's a $100 bill. You can always wait for him and start watering your yard when you see him coming or just sit out front and enjoy the evening.

This lady does it all the time to me after I asked her several times politely not to come through my yard with her dog. Now she comes through on purpose just to piss me off!! I want to try to find something very sticky to lay down right where she walks through so she won't do it again

I hate to say it but this kid seems to need attention. As long as you make an issue about it he will continue to do it. Have you tried placing warning signs on your lawn? Like - Warning dangerous pesticide has been applied on grass? If he loves his dog it might work.


Have you tried talking to his family about this? Have you called the police to report his trespassing? It is against the law for someone to come on your property - post a no trespassing sign. If you go to Radio Shack you could probably buy a cheap monitoring camera, mount it near the trespassing sign. Good luck.

I have the same problem except its my front garden which has a footpath on its edge and also its an elderly lady who walks her dog on the footpath, she stops every day while he pees and pops, she has now started to wave at me while I stand staring at her through the window! I'm going to try putting jeys fluid around the periphery its meant to keep them away (possibly any other very strong smelling disinfectant may also do the trick), apparently grounding up fresh chillies and spreading it around the border is useful too.


Hope this helps!

There are other answers to this. It seems like you covered the basics for "normal" neighbors, but this one is a bad neighbor. Here's an article that details the steps you can take up to and including police and legal action:

As the article details, it's important to collect evidence that can't effectively be challenged.

Not having solid evidence gets into a "he said, she said" scenario that leads to bad feelings and no resolution.
