Default Time to walk the dog.

Curious. How many people here walk their dogs and how many have them go in the yard? At the old house, she had her own "spot" where she pooped... here we walk her.

Large back yard. The Golden would go into the woods to do his business. Our Newfoundland hasn't figured that out and still goes in the yead (about 3 acres with invisible fence).

My pooch is accustomed to atleast 2-3 walks daily. He knows my schedule so well I couldn't get away without walking him. In the long run it's healthy exercise for the both of us.

So do you pick up after your animal when it bombs the neighbors yard?

Newest neighbor was walking her little pup. Dog stopped right in front of my house and dropped a dog deuce right in front of my house. Before I could get to the door and tell her, "thank you" she had already picked the little poop up in a plastic bag.

Hopefully I will catch her next time and tell her that I find picking up dog poop is disgusting and please, don't do it in front of my house.

Walk my dog twice a day to poop during a walk.

I had a dalmatian for 16 years.

He was an inside dog (I mean INSIDE!).

He would go out, handle business, and back in FAST.

No sniffing around nothing. Pee, poop or both and back quick!

Miss that dog.

Oh and we always had a fenced yard (a prerequisite for me in home buying).

Three acre property with about a half acre of it woods. Both dogs do their thing in the woods, and have full run of the fenced property. No walking or poop scooping here.

Clear?

Not really. You didn't mention anything about "attractive young lady" in your first post. But to your point, you are saying that if the person walking the dog is a female, and attractive in your opinion, then her dog may shat in your yard and she does not have to pick it up. Well, you are certainly entitled to your opinion...

Picking up after your pet is not only a matter of decency and respect, it's also a matter of preventing the spread of disease. She did the right thing in my book.

You asked for more information. You got it and now you are crying that I gave you more information.

Please, show how animals pooping outside spread disease.

They need to start shooting all cows and rabbits and raccoons and birds and seals and elk and badgers and horses and crabs and sheep and snakes and....

Pretty sure there one or two "animals" that shit outside.

Seriously. Take a dump outside... you will feel better and you won't kill any of your neighbors.

Nope, not crying.

Google.

You have "all cows and rabbits and raccoons and birds and seals and elk and badgers and horses and crabs and sheep and snakes" shatting in your front yard?

Pretty sure there one or two "animals" that shit outside.

I'm pretty sure your math is incorrect.

Seriously. Take a dump outside... you will feel better and you won't kill any of your neighbors.

Funny, I've had to take plenty of dumps outside. I did feel better. My "neighbors," and I use that term loosely in that I am not implying the common residential area the way you understand it, did not get killed because they did not consume it, nor did they crawl through it or step in it and track it into their living areas, thus preventing the contamination of fecal matter, which can spread diseases, cause infection, and even be fatal as hard as that may be for you to comprehend.

Check out #1 there tough guy

"#1. Disease Control

There are several very common diseases that can be transmitted to dogs, cats and people through feces. These include giardia, roundworms, salmonella, and Ecoli. In addition, your dog can spread or contract parvovirus or coronavirus through infected feces. All of these diseases are very serious and common and every effort should be made by pet owners to keep their pets and family away from potentially infected feces."

She is a 14 year old black lab and we simply let her out one of the doors. She has bad knee's so when she isn't feeling good we let her out the front door to do her business. She never leaves the yard and usually does her #2 in the side yard which is great. The back yard is fenced in but we have a deck on the 2nd story of the house and she has a hard time getting back up the stairs sometimes.

I have owned many dogs in my life but she is the only dog that we can let out and doesn't have to be watched. She will do her business, sniff around for a while and then bark when she wants back in the house.
