    Default Stopping Dogs Toiletting Infront of House

    Is there any way of stopping dogs doing their business infront of my house? There are dogs on my street which are allowed to roam free on our street... I never get to catch the owners though.

    Since Milo loves playing with every single dog he sees so, I tried leaving him out in the front yard to distract the passing by dogs from defecating infront of my house. I don't know if it's because my fences are too high so he can't see or if Milo just can't sense that another dog is there, but lveaing him out there didn't solve the problem...

    I've also tried spraying some vinegar on the common spots but doesn't seem to work...

    Any ideas guys?

    good way to stop them call the council, its illeagal to have your dog roaming the streets.

    not to mention dangerous to them possibly getting run over.

    the fine is enough to deter a person to keep their dog safe

    (when we first moved to this area tessa got out and walked a block before getting picked up,

    cost about $80 to register her to get her out then the council sent me about $220 in fines.

    (not so bad if they are registered)

    I agree about calling the ranger. If you can catch the dogs and hold them till the ranger gets there, that will help or at least get their rego tag if they have one.

    And meanwhile, buy some menthol moth flakes and sprinkle those liberally around where you don't want any dog crap.

    Years ago there was this idea that since most dogs do not mess near their water , that plastic bottles full of water placed around an area would stop stray dogs using that area as a toilet, this seems to work to some extent on dogs that have not been used to being tied, or locked up, and HAVING to go near their water source.

    I've seen dogs pee on bottles of water, so I don't think that plastic bottles full of water do much except provide habitat for mozzies.

    I've also seen (mostly female) dogs pee in and drink out of the same puddle of water at the same time. Weird but true, and more than one bitch.

    And I've seen dogs crap on the edge of water - like sea water, but I really don't think dogs care about whether they crap in or near a water source.

    Dogs love to sniff other dogs' poo, and that's a common way to transmit really nasty doggy diseases and yet they still do it.

    What I do know is almost all dogs sniff the ground thoroughly before crapping and something like menthol up the schnoz (or vicks vapour rub on smaller spots), will move them along promptly.
