How do I prevent a dog from pooping on my lawn?

I am having a problem with one of my neighbors. I do not know which one it is but I awake each day to a little gift on my front lawn.

 

How do I get the neighbor to clean up after their pet or prevent the pet from pooping on my lawn?

Put up a camera system and you'll soon figure out who the culprit is.

Sounds like you need the invisible fence with a little spark to keep pets out.

i love that picture btw, well.... thats a tough one, first question is are they walking the dog? or does it roam loose over to your area? if they dont know, they cant fix it.. other than that..... collect it and put at their doorstep lol.. then list and move! :)

Rose I am still not sure if the dog is to be blamed or the owner.

Mike after I put the cameras up I will collect the samples to aid with the relocation of the turd in question. I am not quite ready to relocate yet though.

An invisible fence is to keep a dog in and not out lol.  It's tied to a collar around the dogs neck.  Search the internet.  Cameras are a good thing these days aand for more than neighbors dogs.

The only thing you can do is put a camera so you can find out who's it is and let them know. Hopefully you have nice neighbors and it will get taken care of.

A security camera will provide the answer.

This is not an unusual problem.

I can't say I've ever seen a post about poop before, but it certainly caught my attention.  Can't wait to hear what your security camera finds.

Wireless cameras are fairly common these days, I have one produced by DLink that I bought from Walmart for around $80, can see who is outside my office on my smart phone or computer.

Before you pursue this, ask yourself, do I want to fight with my neighbors or do I want to live in a harmonious place and save my energy for more productive pursuits.

Personally I would just ignore it, let the droppings dry out a bit and pick them up on mowing day.
