Would it be unreasonable of me to want to punch in the face, the disgusting person who let their dog shit on the pavement outside my house without picking it up? If I see it happen, I will be out of my house in a shot... And if I then happen to see them walk to a car, I will take their reg number, and the next time they park near my house, I'm going to smear that dog shit under the drivers side door handle.
Yes, I have more important things to worry about but it's so disgusting. Luckily my husband realised he had trodden in it before he walked in the house. What are people playing at??

Sparklingbrook Sun 01-Dec-13 23:01:08

Eww. It's vile isn't it? Do you think some owners don't bother as it's dark. sad

Devora Sun 01-Dec-13 23:02:35

YANBU. Wish I could take similar action against the fox who sits on my front path and stares insolently at me if I look out. Come morning, there's always stinky fox poo waiting for me on the path...

Mouthfulofquiz Sun 01-Dec-13 23:03:14

I really hope that I catch them. I'm the sort of saddo curtain twitcher that will lay in wait for days to catch my prey!!!

Sparklingbrook Sun 01-Dec-13 23:03:29

At least the fox hasn't got a feckless owner Devora.

moldingsunbeams Sun 01-Dec-13 23:03:34

someone let their dog do this in my door way the other day and dd stood in it and it went all on the bottom of her bloody trousers.

LuciusMalfoyisSmokingHot Sun 01-Dec-13 23:04:53

Ugh, i hate lazy gross dog owners, i found cat sick on my front path, atleast the owners couldnt help that, bloody cat.

Wuxiapian Sun 01-Dec-13 23:06:19

I cannot abide such blatant foulness.

YANBU about the handle-smearing. Not in the slightest.

Sexykitten2005 Sun 01-Dec-13 23:06:59

Lol years a woman on our base used to do this on my mums path (don't think it was intentional) and mum always used to run my buggy through it by mistake. One day she flipped and took a particularly nasty nappy of mine up to her house and dumped it on her doorstep. Cue massive row in officers mess with my mum saying "well if you expect me to clean up your dog shit you can clean up my kids shit" never happened again. Poo under door handles is deserved....

Mouthfulofquiz Sun 01-Dec-13 23:07:24

Before my mum even had a dog she had been known to march up to people (run after them!!) in her village on the green when she saw people walking away from their dog crap - and then she would dole out a plastic bag and the type of bollocking that only my mother can deliver. I hope I have inherited some of her genes in this area....

softlysoftly Sun 01-Dec-13 23:07:59

YANBU but I have a similar dilemma, there is a seriel dog shit offender on our street, DCs have to watch their step because of it, tricky with a 16m old.

Yesterday I saw the kindly old gent I wave to every day on his mobility scooter towed along by some great white hairy hound.

I saw him hound squat And shit then he buggers off and leaves it, he's the culprot angry

But what can I say? Get off your scooter and clean your shit or I'll chuck it in your basket next time you ride past?

Ohh this happened to us, we have a wide front garden with no wall etc.

Some random let his dog shit on my lawn and he left it there! I went out and asked why he didn't pick up and he told me to fuck off.

Unfortunately for him I knew where he lived so posted DDs open nappy through his letterbox later in the week.

No come back fortunately grin

Mouthfulofquiz Sun 01-Dec-13 23:08:13

Sexykitten - your mum is a LEGEND

Mouthfulofquiz Sun 01-Dec-13 23:09:28

Softly - yes I bloody would. Get him a pooper scoop with a long handle. Just makes my blood boil.

Mouthfulofquiz Sun 01-Dec-13 23:10:01

Inthered - well done!!

softlysoftly Sun 01-Dec-13 23:10:04

My angry sentence went wrong: his and * culprit blush

Mouthfulofquiz Sun 01-Dec-13 23:11:04

I don't know why I made this post before bed. Now I'm too wound up to sleep! Bah!

softlysoftly Sun 01-Dec-13 23:12:14

Long handle scoop is inspired. I'm going to stalk him home and leave it on his doorstep with "merry fucking christmas love xxxxc road"

ananikifo Sun 01-Dec-13 23:12:49

YANBU. I someone did this outside our house and I ran the pram wheels through it. It's disgusting and as I had to clean it off the wheels I was fuming.

Mouthfulofquiz Sun 01-Dec-13 23:14:50

There is literally no excuse for people who can't bend down to the floor.

ReluctantBeing Sun 01-Dec-13 23:15:53

Pisses me off too. Picking up poo is part of dog ownership.

I wish cat owners would clear up their pet's shit too. I share a front lawn with next door neighbour. Her 3 cats always shit on my side of the lawn

DownstairsMixUp Sun 01-Dec-13 23:16:13

Also hate it to. angry lucky it's not too bad here because we are by the beach and have plenty of dog poo bins but there are a few. Wish I could see them to smear it under car handles, pisses me off no end!

Lottapianos Sun 01-Dec-13 23:20:23

Just disgusting. Owners who don't pick up after their dogs deserve to have their own noses rubbed in it

peggyundercrackers Sun 01-Dec-13 23:23:12

if you know where they live dump it on their doorstep and put a bit of paper on top of it and set it on fire then knock on their door. they will open door and on seeing the fire should stamp on it thus covering them in it.

Mouthfulofquiz Sun 01-Dec-13 23:23:25

Noarmani - just chuck it back over the fence. Or let it dry out a bit and leave it in a nice line along the path.

GideonKipper Sun 01-Dec-13 23:26:48

NoArmani I agree. I remember a thread on here relating to cats shitting all over and it got very heated.

Mouthfulofquiz Sun 01-Dec-13 23:26:57

Or could you do a long poo, save it, and pop it over her side of the lawn??

HesterShaw Sun 01-Dec-13 23:34:29


We had a similarly charming neighbour. I once caught him and asked him to pick up his dog's shit rather than leaving at the end of our path every single day. The next morning he'd flicked it over into the drive, just by the car door. I didn't notice, trampled it into the car, and through the house before I did. I thought DH was going to explode with fury. He went round his house, and it didn't happen again. Apparently the wife was mortified about her husband's behaviour.

Tulip26 Sun 01-Dec-13 23:36:12

Phone your local council, in some areas serial offenders can be BANNED from walking their dogs.

SweetPeaAndPumpkin Sun 01-Dec-13 23:40:55

I think this thread has the worst advice on it I have ever seen.

Please, please, please don't set fire to a piece of paper outside a front door. You could inadvertently start a fire WHICH CAN KILL PEOPLE.

Posting it through a letterbox is fine by me though.

sandgrown Sun 01-Dec-13 23:47:15

My elderly aunt lived in a dodgy area and had burning paper through the letterbox.her escape was blocked and she had to be rescued. She could have died but her cat woke her by pawing her face. I am a dog owner who always picks up poo and it annoys me when others do not as we are all tarred with the same brush!

FloozeyLoozey Sun 01-Dec-13 23:50:50

I work in a dodgy part of town and often see dogs shitting without their owners cleaning up. I'm too wimpy to confront them as the dogs are usually staffies or similar and the men look like they'd stab me for saying anything, so I suffer in silence and have to study the pavement intently when walking along.

notundermyfoof Mon 02-Dec-13 00:14:40

Urgh yanbu at all! There is a serial shitter in my street, literally every day we find or step in a fresh pile angry . So far I have no idea who it is but when I do they will be getting a turd posted back through their letterbox, fucking disgusting people!

longingforsomesleep Mon 02-Dec-13 00:22:11

I often wonder why riders think it's ok to let their horses shit in public places? Having carefully cleared up after my dog on the beach this morning I was very unimpressed to find I'd stepped backwards into horse poo. Admittedly the riders would need to take a bin bag and shovel with them but it always amazes me that they ride along beaches, roads etc leaving a pile of crap behind them without batting an eyelid.

GideonKipper Mon 02-Dec-13 00:34:16

I have thought the same but apparently horse poo is fine because it doesn't contains any parasites and it's basically just grass or something like that. It ain't fine to me when my dog rolls in a pile of steaming horse shit, it bloody stinks.

GideonKipper Mon 02-Dec-13 00:35:38

Oh and it's dangerous for a rider to have to dismount and clear up the crap whilst holding on to their horse at the same time.

longingforsomesleep Mon 02-Dec-13 00:41:29

well my poo doesn't contain parasites (I don't think) but I don't think people would be happy if i left it lying about ....

my dog doesn't just roll in horse poo, she eats it ...

longingforsomesleep Mon 02-Dec-13 00:43:42

and they tend to ride in groups round here so the rider of the offending horse could shovel while someone else held the reins of their horse smile

MrsLouisTheroux Mon 02-Dec-13 06:42:08

Yes, apparently horse poo isn't a nuisance at all. hmm
It just dissolves into the ground with the lightest patter of rain.
The fact that a friend of mine ended up in hospital for 6 weeks after coming of their moped after skidding in a pile of it still doesn't make some people think it's a problem.

teaselweasel Mon 02-Dec-13 06:55:15

Peggy you are an evil genius. I'm in awe.

Morgause Mon 02-Dec-13 07:04:58

My dad used to run out with a shovel after horses had ridden past (we lived in the country). It was wonderful for the roses.

Owners of shitting dogs were offered the same shovel and a plastic bag.

NCISaddict Mon 02-Dec-13 07:28:09

I wonder what happens in our area, very, very rarely see dog poo on our pavements, in fact have only seen it once in seven years of living here. Don't see it in our local parks either.
I wonder if we've got a particularly scary dog warden or just very nice people?
I've got a dog but every pocket of everything I wear is stuffed with poo bags so I'm never caught out.

FreckleyGirlAbroad Mon 02-Dec-13 07:39:14

We too have a phantom dog shitter round our way too and am constantly having to do a shit-slalom down the road with my pram to avoid. I've already wheeled it into the house unknowingly so have learnt to scan the pavement like a hawk!

sexykitten, your advice is genius and if I find who is doing it, will be saving up one of my ds's best yellowy offerings. But I'm sure they are night walkers who are responsible.

emsyj Mon 02-Dec-13 07:41:38

If it's a regular visitor then just look out for them until you work out who it is and what time they walk past then collar them. My DMum did this to a woman who used to let her dog shit at the end of her drive every day - after DMum went out and 'had words' she was never seen again. I think her 'words' may have involved a shovel and my DMum running down the road after her shouting 'YOU'VE FORGOTTEN SOMETHING!!!' like a wild banshee.

tootssweet Mon 02-Dec-13 07:49:11

YASDNBU!!! Some charmer always lets their dog shit on our drive or just by the corner on the pavement. It's always the first place our dog runs to for a whizz so both he, the dc's & yesterday morning DP all trod in it. Never catch them but from the size it's probably a staffie! My evil eye is on the lookout.
Does cheese me off as we do pick up after our dog (& yes I do hand out poo bags to others when walking him!)

monkeymamma Mon 02-Dec-13 07:52:57

Don't smear on door handle, get reg no and description of owner and check yr local council website - they will have a police number and can actually prosecute I believe. Disgusting, yanbu.

CloverCharm Mon 02-Dec-13 09:32:15

It seems to be happening to us too. There's a couple opposite us with three dogs and I'm pretty sure one of those regularly comes and shats right outside the gate. It's bloody disgusting.

Borntorun25 Mon 02-Dec-13 10:47:06

One of my friends used to find a fresh pile of dog shit every morning right in the middle of her driveway. After cleaning it up daily for a week she'd had enough and laid in wait in her garden that evening. About 11pm a nice old lady came along with her hellhound, furtively looked around then encouraged it off the pavement and onto the edge of friend's driveway to do its business. Friend jumped out of the bushes and shone torch on culprit lady shouting something along the lines of ' wtf do yo think you're doing, pick that up right now!' Nice old lady got such a fright she picked up shit with bare hands and stuffed it into her pockets. Never happened again. grin
Not sure if it would have been quite so effective if perpetrator had been hulking brute with an attack dog though!

candycoatedwaterdrops Mon 02-Dec-13 10:55:55

YANBU, it's grim and gives us fastidious dog poo picker upers a bad name, Slightly off topic but my dog has an aversion to crapping on pavement, is he unusual? He goes on the grass which means it's easier to pick it up and doesn't leave skid marks on the pavement for people to slip on.

Snatchoo Mon 02-Dec-13 11:19:41


I am sick and tired of this, I have three small children, once still in a buggy so run the risk of two 4 year olds AND the buggy being run through it. I walked past about 6 disgusting minging piles this morning.

What with having to walk in the road to dodge the cars on the pavement though maybe it's not so bad hmm

GhostsInSnow Mon 02-Dec-13 11:49:25

Told this tale on here before, but for those who haven't heard it.

We fitted CCTV to the front of our house after some local scrotes gentlemen decided that stealing bits from peoples cars was a good way to make a few quid. It worked, they were filmed, caught prosecuted etc and the cameras stayed up.

One morning I left the house to see a pile right on the end of my drive. Being the stubborn sort I went in, ran through the footage and found the culprit at 9.10 the night before. Oldish bloke with a black and white shih tzu. I didn't know him, but he wore a distinctive hat and the dog was reasonably unusual.

Few days later I was heading out when I saw him, walking up the street with the dog. I stopped the car and jumped out and asked him why he let his dog shit on my drive and didn't pick it up. He tried to deny it, but when I told him the exact time and I'd got CCTV he apologised and claimed to have no bags. I suggested then he knock and I'd have given him a bag. Sheepishly he said 'Would you like me to clear it up?" Er YES.

Came home an hour later, pile was gone. Rewound the footage and there he was picking it up. I've seen him a couple of times since, he always crosses the road grin

Not much to add, except to tell you that my late father-in-law used to pick it up (using a plastic bag as a glove) and put it in their pocket - minus the bag! grin
And what is with people who think that because the poo is out of sight, normally behind a bush/ hedge in a park, that it doesn't count? Do they not realise that children love playing hide and seek round bushes?
And please don't get me started on cats! I would genuinely neuter them all, unless the owner was a registered breeder, and I wouldn't allow many of those either.

Nanny0gg Mon 02-Dec-13 12:04:01

What I will never understand is where people pick up the poo in a bag and then hang it from the nearest tree/bush/fence. Even where there are poo bins not too far away.

Why would you do that? Why??

cardamomginger Mon 02-Dec-13 12:04:28

YANBU. There is someone who lives on our road, who walks their dog off the lead. It frequently runs up the path to our block of flats and does a crap. I can see it happening out of my kitchen window. No idea where the guy lives and I can never make it down the stairs quickly enough to confront them.


crazyhamsterbackonthego Mon 02-Dec-13 12:21:04

Where I live people walk past mine to get to the cemetery to walk their dogs don't even get me started & its the same 8 or 9 old biddies with their dogs every day that let their dogs crap at the end of my drive & no matter what I say they just tut at me and walk away fangry

These same people petitioned for bollards to be installed on the grass verges all along my street as the grass was not perfect as a few people had to park half up on it because of the heavy traffic fconfused

Yet its ok for them to leave Dog crap outside my house fangry

TheHammaconda Mon 02-Dec-13 12:27:22

Someone near us put little flags in all the piles of poo giving the names and addresses of the dogs' owners. Things got better for a while.

I am a dog owner who always picks up after my dog, I find it disgusting that people can leave a steaming pile of dog shit for someone to step in! angry It takes two minutes to pick it up with a poop bag and then stick the bag in the next bin you pass.

Loving some of these stories of revenge.

My son's school run used to be a dog turd dodging slalom but it's seemed better lately - I wonder if the culprit has moved house or had a vexed MNer exact revenge. grin

This reminds me of an old thread...a MN picked up a serial poopers poo, and put it in the owners hood while her coat was hanging on the back of a chair.

I had words with a man who stood and watched while his Wolfhound twitched one out, then covered it with a tobacco packet.
I don't usually watch defacating dogs, but I was at my kitchen window. His response went along the lines of 'at least no one will slide on it'.
I gave him a Tesco bag to collect it in. DD was mortified. DH played no part in it.
I still see him walking up and down our road. Murphy (gorgeous dog BTW) did the biggest turds I've ever seen.

Flossiechops Mon 02-Dec-13 14:42:06

Some bastard person keeps leaving their bagged up dog shit on my front wall. It makes no sense - they go to the lengths of picking it up but dump it there. Twats!

Flossiechops Mon 02-Dec-13 14:42:57

kreecher does it pick it up after him now?!

BitOutOfPractice Mon 02-Dec-13 14:48:28

NannyOgg, my ex used to do that...but...his dog used to shit within 2 minutes of leaving the house so he would leave it somewhere and pick it up on the way back. So that is an explanation

When I rule the world and that could happen any day now I will impose prison sentences for people who do not pick up dog shit. And people who throw rubbish out of the car

misskatamari Mon 02-Dec-13 14:53:21

Urgh - a few years ago someone's dog did this outside our house. Then it snowed. And the poo was still there weeks later when it melted and just would not go away despite pouring water at it. Bleurgh!

misskatamari Mon 02-Dec-13 14:54:19

Could be worse tho - I had a friend at uni who opened her front door one day to find a massive turd and a bare arsed tramp legging it!

territt Mon 02-Dec-13 14:57:39

I always pick up after my dog, its sick those that don't.

The problem I have is the neighbours cat shitting in my garden, im going to end up just killing it one day.

Flossie. I've no idea TBH. The dog tends to stand out amongst the staffies and Basset Hounds (for some reason there are about 8 of them living locally).

Iris445 Mon 02-Dec-13 15:05:18

I had a neighbor who did this, twice a day she walked three dogs who all pooed on the lane around my house!

I asked if she was cleaning up after her dog. I explained that if I caught whoever it was ( death stare) I would be depositing it on their front step.

She huffed and puffed and claimed to kick it to the side if the lane, we had a very tense conversation.

She never walks past now. She goes a different route. I'm very happy, no more shit outside my home.

A group of us in our neighbourhood petitioned the local area about this. We asked people to sign to ask our local council to provide more resources to catching and fining offenders.

We got them to introduce dog mess reporting by text, and reverse a decision to cut dog wardens. Neighbourhood wardens can also take enforcement action against non cleaner uppers.

Wannabestepfordwife Mon 02-Dec-13 15:54:18

Yanbu my town is horrific for it you can't walk into town without having to dodge the poo (counted 22 on a half mile walk today) or where some poor sod has gone through it with a pram and there's skid marks on the the pavement.

Don't get me started on cats we have a gravel drive and all the cats on the estate seem to think its a giant litter tray.

PMDD Mon 02-Dec-13 18:03:53

I am a new dog owner - 10 week old puppy that has lived with us for the past 3 weeks. I have poo sacks in my dressing gown pockets, coat pockets, jeans pockets, car doors etc etc etc.

There is no excuse to not pick up dog poo. I pick up the poo from my own garden too, instantly after she goes.

thebody Mon 02-Dec-13 18:07:24

totally op, it's vile.

VisualiseAHorse - I thought of that thread too! It made me smile at the time.

Yanbu! I had some bastard let their animal do it in my garden last week too & 2 of my dc stood in it just before schoolconfused leaving me to clean their shoes <boak>

Someone is letting their dog do this on my front lawn. Every morning a fresh pile on the grass angry.

I pick up my dogs poop religiously and carry water to pour over any smears if its loose (sorry!). Its not hard and its a tiny part of responsible dog ownership. YANBU OP.
