Is anyone else really fed up with dog poo in London?

And, can anyone else tell a mile away who's the culprit?
It's everywhere and I can't bear it, it's so rude and inconsiderate to those who live in your neighborhood; and when I see you in a hoodie on your mobile walking your pit bull off it's lead, I'm on to you.

Oh right cos it's only 'hoodie's' with banned dogs who don't clean up their shit? biscuit

It's mostly the early morning dog walkers here who don't clean up. I live on a busy school run and it's like dodge the dog turds every day.

Unlikely to be early morning walkers, worra. They/we tend to be the responsible ones.
How fresh are those school run turds? I bet they were delivered the night before...

No, really it's the early morning walkers that are the main culprits.

As well as being on a school run, were right round the corner from a park so that doesn't help. The dogs need to cross there legs til they get there lol

So, the owners of banned dogs are responsible on balance? Because in my own experience, if they're young and have banned dogs, they are not cleaning up dog poo. Is anyone seriously in disagreement with this?

Tchootnika Sat 13-Aug-11 19:34:45

How about running after culprit owners with poobag/nappy sac/Tesco bag/old sock and politely saying "I think you need this?"
I do this - but my pockets are generally overflowing with (empty) poo bags(and I swear it's always p.m/weekends when the poo-dumpers appear).

What I'm in disagreement with is your OP

You can't tell the culprits a mile away as they don't all wear hoodies and keep banned dogs.

People need to clean up after their own dogs no matter who they are.

What with everything going on in London the OP gets worked up about dog shit grin

I rarely see dog poo where we live. People round here tend to clean up after their mutts.

IN my area its business men who DRIVE to the play-park in their BMWs, let their dog jump outta the boot and take a crap then jump back in. Nice. I have nothing against BMWs by the way grin

On a side come we never see white dog turds anymore, when i was a kid, the streets were rife hmm

YABU to generalise about the culprits.

But YANBU about the poo, there seems to be more of it these days, or at least I notice it more.

LolaRennt Sat 13-Aug-11 20:04:54

There is a long thread on that very subject Jess, I believe they decided it was because it gets cleaned up quicker now a days

MrsCampbellBlack Sat 13-Aug-11 20:05:07

Well i live in a lovely village and no banned dogs here but still we have a dreadful problem with dog shit.

It is driving me mad - twice in one week on my drive and right outside my house. I am obasessively watching my lane now and when I catch the culprits I will be bagging the mess up and giving it back to them.

It is not on and its an awful lot of people who aren't clearing up round here unfortunately.

JessKM Sat 13-Aug-11 20:25:13

I blame david cameron...............
grin grin grin grin grin grin grin grin grin


Saski Sat 13-Aug-11 20:29:17

I do watch, and generally the culprits are a bit too scary to apprehend.

Saski Sat 13-Aug-11 20:30:26

I don't really blame anyone apart from the council; if they can take such a hard-line stance on parking violations, then certainly, they can sort out dog poo?

Nancy66 Sat 13-Aug-11 20:46:57

Dog poo is definitely reappearing in a bag way in london.

My walk to the station in the morning is 10 minutes in that time I easily dodge about 5 or 6 pavement turds

Gillg57 Sat 13-Aug-11 20:53:21

'Don't blame anyone but the council' says a previous poster. Why?!?!?! I assume the dog owner noticed.

Perhaps councils have been cutting back on their street cleaning budgets?

MrsCampbellBlack Sat 13-Aug-11 20:58:22

The problem is that some dog owners just don't give a shit so to speak and nothing is going to make them pick up really.

We have bins all over our village for dog poo disposal and still some people choose to just let their dogs poo wherever. Its bad enough on pavements and lanes but for me on my drive was a step too far as I ruined a pair of suede shoes stepping in it.

I put up a polite notice requesting people to clear up and not let their dogs poo on my drive - next morning - huge dog poo right by my car.

What can you do though other than shove my DH out there 24x7 with a menacing look on his face wink
