Am I being 'disgusting' for letting my dog pee and poo out of my garden?

As, according to a woman I've just past on my wall with my dog I am hmm

He wee'd up a lamp post and pooed on the grass, but I did pick it up!! She tutted me and told me he should be better trained?

Just thought I'd give it to mn! AIBD??shock

So if it's ok on public ground why not in your own garden??

JustAShopGirl Fri 18-Jul-14 10:57:05

Hahahahaha - really? Well, mine is really badly trained - since he now waits for his walks to go poop.... (and I always clean it up)

No, the woman IB ridiculous.

What are you supposed to do? Carry a bucket around to put under your dog? Daft bint. What did you say?

LiberalLibertines Fri 18-Jul-14 10:58:25

Tiffany I'm sure it goes in the garden as well, but dogs do need walking you know hmm

To be honest as long as you pick up after your dog I really don't see the problem.

Honestly, the anti dog brigade are becoming more and more bizarre.

No, of course YANBU.

My dog will not poo or pee in either of our gardens she does have 'poo spots' when we are out and I always pick up after her YANBU!

What an odd woman! YANBU! Okay, I guess it is a bit gross when you think about it, but we're a pet loving nation, probably the majority of people have/have had pets, so taking your dog for a walk and letting them wee and poo in public is fairly standard behaviour! Besides, there are an awful lot of things which I find more 'disgusting' than this!

Though this reminds me of my old dog, who for some reason would only wee over drains (not trained to do it, she just did!), and we used to get people stop and praise us for training her so well!

BreconBeBuggered Fri 18-Jul-14 11:03:12

She'd probably geared herself up to to have a go, and once you picked up the poo, that was the best she could manage.

InSpaceNooneCanHearYouScream Fri 18-Jul-14 11:06:15

Course YANBU. A quick 'Do fuck off dear' wouldn't have been out of place

CoffeeTea103 Fri 18-Jul-14 11:12:38

Yanbu, you picked up after so don't see what's the issue.

Viviennemary Fri 18-Jul-14 11:12:41

I hate dog mess. However, you picked it up so don't see what she had to complain about.

LST Fri 18-Jul-14 11:19:23

I just looked a bit confused an said mmm.. I'm not very witty sad

I always pick poo up. In fact I put my jacket on the other day and then realising how hot it was, took it off and left it at home! of course poo bags were in the pocket!! It took me 4 trips to the poo bin with poo wrapped leaves! grin

And he does wee in my garden and poo. In fact he normally goes for his poos in the garden. But I never thought it would be an issue for him to pee up a lamp post.

But why does the poo have to hit the ground anyway? There are people who stick a bag under the arse when the dog squats... much better.

Course cleaning it up full stop is fine and better than leaving it. I wouldn't stop a dog leaving peemails though, that's just mean but it would be nice for the dogs could pick them up and leave one before being dragged off which I see often.

CaptChaos Fri 18-Jul-14 11:24:55

How weird.

You picked up, so where's the problem?

There are some truly bizarre people in the world.

gamer but 9 times out of 10 you'd end up with dog shit on your hand...

MyFairyKing Fri 18-Jul-14 23:20:32

People are beyond weird.

hoobypickypicky Fri 18-Jul-14 23:20:43

She's a fruitloop. You picked it up, what's the problem? It's what dogs do.

I await the time she meets a cow doing what cows do. What will she do then? Find the farmer and demand he puts a nappy on the cow?

Well, it is quite disgusting when you think of dogs urinating over lamp-posts, pavements, then us having it on our shoes, buggy wheels etc and taking it into the house. I watched one come into my garden and flood urine all over my front path last week while the owner looked on. And don't get me started on dogs who piddle on my foodwaste bin when it's out for collection and which I then have to carry back in to the garden.

However, I don't think it's a training issue but more of a reflection really that keeping dogs in urban areas is actually pretty antisocial fundamentally. But I know that they are great company to lots of people, which is why I suppose the rest of us have to put up with this, along with them sticking their noses in the faces of small children and/or knocking them over, barking, running over to you and sniffing you/jumping up on you/running round your legs etc, and having their owners tell you not to worry because the dogs are just being friendly...

i dont think i could own a dog as i would not like to pick up poo

MyFairyKing Sat 19-Jul-14 00:46:26

Aaa didn't take long, did it?! wink

Aeroflotgirl Sat 19-Jul-14 00:47:28

picking up toddler poo is hard enough, but dog poo ahhhghgh envy

Where I live, you're regarded as weird if you do let them poop in your garden. Unless you hire the garden poop cleaning companies.
