    It's not just parvo either!

    You can also get any of these:

    Roundworm (and any other intestinal worms), Leptospira (sp?) or Leptospirosis, Giardia, Coccadia, Hydatid disease, Campylobacter, Cryptosporidium, E. Coli and I think there are a few others too.

    I never let Batty sniff at other dogs poop when we're on a walk because of these - it may seem silly, but I'd rather be safe! People can catch these too!

    when I am walking banjo around my neighbourhood I am amazed at all the poops! i feel like a right idiot picking up banjos which is right next to other (bigger) ones! lol.
    The first day we set out for his walk i forgot the bags, he did one right in the middle of a road i was going to just leave this one time but i tell you my concious just wouldnt let me! so we went all the way back to get them.
    i dont know how anyone could just leave them without feeling guilty

    Same here.. i don't allow my dogs sniff other dogs poo's either.. you just don't know if it's disease central or not.. & that is a risk i'm not willing too take.

    The offlead park I sometimes go to is well monitored by the users - if someone doesn't pick up - others do. Why? Because we want it to stay an offlead area

    If my dog did a crap next to another crap, I'd pick both up. Might as well.

    This morning at our "dog exercise area", I picked up two other dog craps and a friend picked up another that wasn't her dogs or mine. Frosty did one crap and I picked that up too. There were plenty of bags to replenish supply today but sometimes there are none.

    At a different dog oval I watched a girl watch her GSP do a big crap on the oval, and then she walked off too fast for me to catch up with her so I went back and picked up the crap. I couldn't figure out why she hadn't when she clearly knew it was there. And I went back to catch up with her, and found her coming back with a bag, she'd had none. I gave her the bag full and said "just ask" any of us doggy people would have been happy to share a bag. She seemed to think it very unusual for her dog to crap at the oval, then again she doesn't usually walk it there. My dog seems to save them up for the oval.

    I think people who think they don't need bags because their dog won't crap are a bit deluded. My dog has only crapped on the footpath (verge) once and I picked it up, but I don't assume she will never do it again because she hasn't done any since (despite many opportunities).

    Aw, bummer, I'm deluded.

    Seriously Hy, I have owned dogs who would try to poop as many times as they could on every walk. I'm sure it was a game to them to watch me have to stop and pick the darned crap up all the time.
    Yet, I've owned two dogs who flatly refused (in 9 and 10 years consecutively) to ever poop whilst out and about. It's like they had a phobia about pooping in public. I never carried pick up freezer bags with that dog and bitch, but I sure had to make up for it with the others!

    I am one of the worse for complaining about ppl not picking up after their dogs and then my dog caught me out without bags......oh dear ..... once at training he pooped and I had nothing to pick it up, not even a piece of paper in my car. Then another time he crapped on someone's lawn and I'd forgotten a bag......oops......does that count as an excuse? hehe

    Otherwise I do pickup after my dog.

    The problem of poop on the pavement is shocking where I live in Glebe, Sydney. The walk from my house to the local shops is a poop minefield! A dozen turds in the space of a hundred metres! Anyway, the residents round here are fighting back. We’ve been photographing the bad dog owners we catch and publicly shaming them with a poster campaign around the neighbourhood. This campaign is gathering support and last week we made the front page of the newspaper (Inner West Courier), and Channel Ten did a news story on Saturday. To view the Channel Ten news clip and see the newspaper please visit our facebook page - search for ‘City Residents Against Poop’, or click on the below link. We’d love the support of responsible dog owners. Go onto the page and ‘Like’ us! Cheers, Mr Pooper Snooper

    Hey, it's one thing to promote your cause, but spamming isn't going to help.

    Default Spamming?

    Hi Beloz,

    I didn't think manually posting my message on a relevant thread and including a link was classed as 'spamming'!?

    I just registered on the site, and posted two messages! One on this thread, and then also started a new thread on a similar topic (as this one looked like it had finished last year).

    I'm a real person, not a 'bot' !

    Cheers,

    Mr Pooper Snooper
