Default Neighbors dog messing in your yard?

So I've bin finding multiple piles of dog sh!t in my front yard. Big piles, way bigger then my dog and I clean up my dogs mess every time he goes. I've found piles in my driveway next to my mailbox, in my driveway 2 feet next to my truck etc..... So I just went on my front porch and saw a yellow lab sh!tting next to my truck, baam caught! So now that I know I'm not crazy I start to follow the dog hoping he runs to his home so I can politely confront the careless dog owner. As I start to follow him I see the dogs owner behind my home calling for him. Perfect, I ask the guy if that's his dog and inform him that he's bin sh!tting all over my yard (and my neighbor next door's) yard. He was very apologetic and said he was unaware his dog was doing that. He said it wouldn't happen again. My question is, if he let's the dog roam the streets free for extended periods of time how is he gonna stop this? Two what do I do next when it doesn't stop? Please no smart ass answers like "build a fence". I am an animal lover and don't wanna have to call animal control or have to threaten the guy. One thing that really bugs me is irresponsible dog owners. If you own a dog it should stay on your property unless they are on a leash or doesn't leave your side. The dog may be harmless, but there are always children playing in my yard ages 3-11. How do I know the dog is friendly? Suggestions?

If there are always kids playing in your yard and this dog has been doing this for a long time then he or she is harmless. Right?

Re the poop. Scoop it.

Pick up a few pieces of poop or start a feud with the neighbors...easy decision for me!

This.

We have a few dogs that roam the neighborhood. They're nice. Once in a while I have to scoop some poop but I still manage to get by.

I racked the twelve gauge that stays next to my front door (for girl scouts and pizza delivery men) to scare them off but they ignored me.

Well, first we need pics of any and all wives/GFs/mistresses.

Then, we can advise on whether it would be preferable to build an outdoor wedding facility or set up cameras, rocks at the end of your driveway, or install a GPS tracker on said dog.

I'm thinking outdoor wedding facility.

I occasionally get the random pile of poop which is fine but:

When my kids were young I started finding 2-3 piles of poop EVERYDAY in my yard (we don't own dogs). I realized the next door neighbors dogs were kept indoors 23.5 hours a day and when let out were dropping logs in my yard (1 big, 2 small dogs). I asked them several times to control it.....no change. I started shoveling/throwing the poop on their paved driveway......no change cause they didn't care about anything!

So I first asked nicely, then a bit more aggressively that I didn't want my kids playing in their dogs poop. Finally I left a plate of leftover hamburgers out in the area where the dogs pooped every morning before the owners went to work...........only I stuffed laxatives in the hamburgers. Felt bad for the dogs but the owners just didn't care about much of anything. I can't imagine the scene in that house at the end of that day but the dogs never shit my yard anymore after that.

I think anyone who lets their dog do their business on someone else's property should be confronted. I own a dog and I know sometimes they can do things quickly, even on a leash, but a consistent mess is on purpose. You spoke to him, he knows you know, now wait. If it happens again, scoop it up and save it. When you see him again, give it to him, tell he forgot something and stress that it will not happen again.

With all due respect, that sounds like problem with a three year old and not a dog or neighbor.

Animal control is your best bet, hit him in the wallet.

I deal with this every summer at our cottage. The jack ass neighbor lets his dogs out to free range and they crap in my yard all the time. Each year I scoop it put it in a bag and throw it right next to his drivers side car door. When he doesn't get the hint the bag goes on his front porch. After that no more bag and repeat, place, the crap until they get the picture. What really chaps my ass is that we are out with our dogs each time and pick up after them. Usually what happens is his wife is the one who scurries around cleaning up after the dogs, while the prick husband sits inside.

I would recommend the invisible fence and a pissy mail lady.
