    You are probably right Ozeymum. Ours must be very industrious as the pooh is demolished really quickly.

    I hoped it might have been cane toads. It would be nice to have something nice to say about them. The poor little guys didn't ask to be here and it's not much fun being Public Enemy Number One.

    I pick up the poo a couple of times a day, bag it and bin it, and hose down the area. In summer though it still smells of urine a bit - not such a problem once the rain comes - but does anyone have a solution to that?

    Are your dogs desexed or entire Sandy? Entire male dog pee really stinks. A few months after desexing it doesn't exactly smell like rose water but is certainly less pungent.

    Perhaps you could train your dogs to use the bottom of the yard, as far from the house as possible.

    Yes, both are desexed. Their run is attached to the house, and unfortunately I can't send them further away to toilet as we're surrounded by bush and it's unfenceable. It's Ok once it rains, but with water restrictions it can be a bit of a problem.

    Vinegar is good. You can buy a 2 litre 'no name' brand bottle of vinegar for a few dollars. Pour it over the areas that the dogs wee a lot, leave it for a few hours and then hose off. Your backyard will remind you og chips and vinegar for a while but it sure beats the smell of urine!

    I use vinegar a lot for all different dog things.

    There's always more poo - it is creepy!

    It seems to multiply out of proportion to the number of dogs though...

    We have eight big ones here at the moment... ARRGHH!!! The Poo!!!

    I wonder what would happen if I bagged it and put it at the gate for $1 a bag like some folks do with horse poo....
