What to do with dogs that think your lawn is a bathroom | WTOP

By Mike McGrath

Dogs are cute, but what about when they mistake your lawn for a toilet?

I would set up a motion activated sprinkler and adjust it so that its blast of cold water falls right at the edge of the lawn at its furthest arc. That should spare pedestrians while still sending a strong message to those thoughtless dog walkers.

Some thoughts:

  • Put out a bunch of those little lawn flags that indicate pesticide application, and post a sign or two that says: “Warning; this lawn has been treated with a chemical dangerous to children and pets!” (And hope that these losers can read.)
  • Put a “nanny cam” up outside, catch the owners in the act and post the video to YouTube.
  • If you know where the “walkers” live, consider returning their “gifts” — to the first place they’ll step on as they exit their front door.
