to think dog owners shouldn't be allowed to keep their dog

If they don't pick up their shit?

This has probably been done to death but it seriously enrages me so much when I see big piles of shit on the ground or someone walking away after their dog has taken a massive dump somewhere.

Yesterday I only realised I stood in some after the buckle of my baby's sling touched my shoe and I could smell it when putting her into it. Had to spend ages cleaning it and my shoe, plus the pedals in my car sad angry Fucking horrible.

Yanbu. I got it on the pram wheels, wheeled it into the house and got DC out and her crawled in it. angry

As a dog owner, YADNBU - it's vile angry

Another dog owner YANBU

Boils my piss too or the ones who do bag it but then leave it hanging from a tree (WTAF?) on someone wall or next to the poo bin.

I always try and hex them to stand it in and drag it through their house

Dog owner here and YANBU at all. I read somewhere that in Denmark they DNA test all pet dogs and if there's poo on the street they DNA test it and fine the owner. No idea if it's true but it'd be brilliant if we could introduce it here. I've no problem with massive fines for offenders, too, because we always have and always will pick up after our dog. Those who moan about the fines are likely the ones not picking up.

It's catching them. I don't know what the answer is but people who do this are grim. And yes. I have a dog. I pick up. Always.

I'm a dog owner and it's a really hate of mine. I've actually picked up a dog's poo and then given it to the owner. I've also told someone to pick it up. It doesn't always go down too well, but I think we should put these disgusting buggers to shame.

Another dog owner. Streets near me are caked in it. I always carry loads of bags.

In the winter picking up warm poo in a bag is never a chore wink

Wasn't there someone on here a year or two ago who put a poo in the owner's hood?

I'm still laughing about that grin

Another dog owner here and I totally agree.
Makes me especially mad when I tread in some ( not ours )while holding full poo bags( ours)

MipMipMip Fri 10-Feb-17 21:17:35

I agree.

Although I have to point out that my dog has recently started crouching and doing nothing - I promise I'm not just ignoring it! Sure I'm nit the only one.

Dog is fine btw, its just his latest weirdness....

I've stood in dog poo in the park on the way to pick up my own dogs shit. There's a massive problem with huge mounds of the stuff on the pavement around our school. It's disgusting.

IndianaMoleWoman Fri 10-Feb-17 21:22:01

Round here there seems to be trend of picking it up, tying the bag...then chucking the bag. On the floor, in tree branches, in my paper recycling bin...why?!

AlmostAJillSandwich Fri 10-Feb-17 21:25:02

I actually had a "Go that man!" thought in the car the other day when we drove past a shitting dog and i saw the owner shaking out a bag getting ready to pick it up.
Quick question though, if the dog has an off tummy and its really runny, do you still pick up? Solid ok you put your hand in the bag, grab it and pull through turning the bag inside out containing the poo, but if its really sloppy and watery and running down the road a bit like a wee, what's the protocol? You might be able to pick up a little bit of the more solid bit but you'd get the bag covered in the liquidised stuff and surely end up flinging it everywhere trying to turn the bag inside out? Would you begrudge someone not picking up a physically not solid poo? Not everyone will have water on hand to try to rinse down where they went, and that would spread it out making a bigger mess.

^ My dog does this, i end up stood there with a poo bag on my hand waiting to pick up and he just walks off... Clean floor hmm

Saying that YANBU, I hate people who don't pick up, and have taken to giving dog owners poo bags when I'm walking mine and I see someone not pick up, eg: "oh dear I noticed you must have run out of poo bags, it's horrible when you get caught short. Here's a bag, save you going home to fetch one then coming back" huge smile, hand over empty poo bag. Usually they are embarrassed enough that they mumble a thankyou and pick it up

Another dog owner and hater of dog-poo-leavers. Take the dog and the kids out, and spend the whole time yelling at the kids to mind the poo left by someone else's dog. Drives me mad. There are two or three walks round me that really bad for this. One of them is a great walk for a wet day as it doesn't get muddy but all the owners head there and it's the worst for being covered in piles of shit.

I have moved so far up the dog poo picking chain I have gadgets! I now have a little thing that clips to my belt with bags at one end and hand sanitiser at the other - got that after picking up poo and the bag got ripped by a twig as I did so. Yuk. And I have one of those boxes on a shoulder strap that I can put the bagged poo in and clip shut, so if the toddler demands to be carried I'm not swinging a bag of poo inches from her. I like to flaunt them to make my point!

Superhero I was particularly impressed the other DAT when it was pouring with rain and I had to wade across several island mounds that had appeared to pick up.... Nothing. Don't you just love them?!

Wouldn't it be great if people who dump mac Donald's wrappers and containers in car parks and public places were banned from buying mac Donald's ever again!! As a responsible dog owner and most of my dog owning friends are responsible I despair of and am confounded by the mindset of the people who chuck the maccy d debris out of their car window into public places encouraging rats and foxes etc

This is my biggest hate ever. If I see someone's dog pooping and the owner trying to leave it I always say something, I don't care, they're disgusting! I normally do the 'oh, have you not got a bag, here I've a spare one' thing. There has been the odd time I've been out with my kids though and not had my dog with me and no bags and I've pulled someone up on it and I just say 'are you jot gonna pick that up'. This is met one of three ways 1. They say they've forgot the bag and are going to get one (they never do) 2. They look shhepish and actually pick it up 3. So lovely when I was told to fuck off.

Keepingupwiththejonesys Fri 10-Feb-17 22:41:18

That annoys me too Nell, even worse is the fact there's always bins there!

engineersthumb Fri 10-Feb-17 22:43:31

It's almost as bad as cat owners not having litter trays and thinking it's fine for theIreland cat to crap everywhere because "oh cats do that"????

DontTouchTheMoustache Fri 10-Feb-17 22:43:37

mipmipmip my dog does the weird squat thing too! I'm constantly paranoid that people will.think I'm ignoring poo but he isn't doing anything just squatting and grinning at me (I suspect he knows it annoys me and does it for laughs). Sometimes I even trot over with a doggy bag and scoop up leaves just to make sure nobody thinks I'm one of those dog owners!

Cherrysoup Fri 10-Feb-17 22:46:48

Extreme, but YANBU and I'm saying that as an owner of multiple dogs, so feel like I'm picking up all the time. I'm sick of having to avoid other dog's shit.

I was recommended a field when I went to puppy training, so duly went along. Bloody field was like a dog shit minefield, every single step had a pile! Never again, I couldn't even throw a ball for the puppy, it would have landed in shit! Horrible.

DontTouchTheMoustache Fri 10-Feb-17 22:46:48

I also got to the park last week and realised I had forgotten the poo bags and was in a state of fear the whole way round and was contemplating going up to random dog owners to ask to borrow one just in case but also being worried they would think I was a total nutcase but mercifully he did not have a shit.

FeliciaJollygoodfellow Fri 10-Feb-17 22:49:13

YANBU. I used to walk my twins to nursery while pushing my newborn in a pram. One seriously dirty bastard had let their dog do a giant shit at the school gate angry. They'd obviously also dragged the dog so there was a trail of turds which meant I literally couldn't get past without going through the shit angryangry

So that was nice trying to clean in the street outside my house as I live in a terrace and have no access to the back without walking through the house.
