I am not a dog owner and not a pet person.

I am taking a dog for a walk in a nicer neighborhood. Do I stay to the street or let the dog wander in people's yards obviously picking up the dog's waste or do I keep to the road? Thanks!

Different cities have different ordinances, so you may want to check that...

Also, most dogs I've known won't poop in the street... they want grass. *Except one mutt I owned that had no problem doing it on my carpet*

Whatever you do... make sure you clean it up. Nothing worse then seeing, smelling or stepping in dog crap!

Why are you walking the dog?

A favor

The dog is cute but the dog etiquette escapes me

As long as the dog is on a leash and does not wander too far from the side walk then it is ok to let them have some dog-fun and sniff around. And always clean up their poo. Also, keep the dog close when you are approaching other people. If you approach another dog they will both want to sniff each others butts and that is usually ok, just take some queues from the other dog owner in case the other dog should not be approached (ie, the other dog may be overly timid or overly aggressive).

Otherwise, just enjoy your walk!

Please walk the dog in the street or on the sidewalk. Do not let the dog wander around in anyone else's yard. Please! Even if you clean up the poop. It's someone else's property. Stay off it.

We put up a low fence around our yard just to keep dog walkers from letting their dogs in our front yard. They trample plants, chase away the birds, and leave poo (even when the poo is picked up, there's often a poo smudge left. I do not like smelling poo smudges when I'm gardening.)

Btw, I *like* dogs, had a series of dogs as kid and college student.

Stronger- I felt the same way but then I thought it was cruel because he wouldn't be able to poop or pee unless on the road which I didn't think would happen.

I am not a dog person so I felt stronger about sticking to the road.

Thanks- it since to know that there are thoughts on this- I was going back and forth

By the way I read your post quickly and thought you wrote you had a dog and a college kid. I figured you would let him inside the house

Here in DC, it's "normal" to let dogs (on leash) walk on the part of the yard that falls between the sidewalk and the street, but not in people's yard right next to their house. And always, always, always clean up whatever your dog leaves behind.

I'm always uncomfy letting my dog wander on part of a property even when on a leash. I always bring bags to carry poop, but I still try to keep him near the sidewalk part to do his business. And if someone happens to be outside in front of their house, I will not let him go period. That would just be too weird. There are times I have forgotten a bag and have felt horrible about it. But we are human and forget.

Same here. I love animals. I love dogs. I absolutely hate it when people walking their dogs let their dogs pee & poop in my yard/on my plants. I have lost plants because they got peed on one time too many (plus had plants trampled & broken). And then yes, the smear left behind from dog poop. How is that acceptable to anyone? It's disgusting. Makes me want to follow the person home & take a crap in their yard.

Probably the main reason why I'll never have a dog.

Can't stand the smell. Not too many things worse than the stink of dog poo.

That and having to handle the bag of crap and carry it for the whole walk.... It takes a strong stomach. And a large animal dumps quite a load.....

TJ/

I had cats before and that is bad enough. Won't have any more because they love to roam pooping and killing birds to boot. Keeping them indoors is difficult, they just want owwwwt!

I think I filled my quota with two Siamese x 18 years. The carnage was unbelievable.

Horses, on the other hand, are just all-around lovely. Is that because they are vegetarian I wonder?

Fireproof,

Dogs in general have no trouble pooping and peeing in the street. If the dog you are caring for has this problem, walk him or her around the owner's yard until the pup had done his/her business. Praise the dog for doing its biz, give it a treat, then walk around the neighborhood. Keeping off the neighbors lawns, of course!

Eta, I just work with college kids. I'm not sure they're all trained!

Just a note on dog behavior. Our dog didn't like other dogs, If you don't know what the dogs temperament is be careful not to let the dog around children and other dogs until you find out if the dog is ok with that.

Fireproof, if it's possible and close, I would take him to his own yard for potty time, and play time, that is what's familiar, and less likely to create any behavior issues.

I can't answer the question about other peoples yards, as I live in the country, and my dogs generally poop at the edge of the woods. They don't like it in their yard anymore than you do. My current dog, a lab has her favorite pee spot, and a favorite poop spot, and these will change occasionally, but for the most part stay the same.

I can't imagine not having a dog because of the poop. That just seems foriegn to me. I guess that's because I am a dog person first, and animal person second.
