I have been cleaning up after a neighbour and their dog for about a year...We live in a block of flats and they always leave a muddy mess outside our front door.
I reported it to management company as i got fed up of cleaning it up every other day. We also jet washed the outside stairs, bought a door mat for the communal front door and a little sign to say please wipe your feet. Still they carry on....And still i go out and mop it up.
I am currently 29weeks pregnant and struggling to get around so mopping up is getting harder. I did it yesterday and within an hour their were muddy dog prints....I got upset as i am fed up of cleaning it up. So DH gave them a knock this morning and asked the woman to please clean up as we are constantly cleaning up. She said fine.
Next thing we know her DH comes back home, bangs on our door and starts going off, so i came out and started recording him so he toned it down a bit. But we were called pathetic, need to take a look at our lives, crazy, borderline harassment, and so on. I have called the police who say its low priority. But I'm terrified to go out my door now. A friend has had to come home with me until DH gets back. DH is working away for a night tomorrow and i am sick with worry.

Would you be offended and kick off if someone asked you to clean up mud after your dog?

I wouldn't wait to be asked to clean up after my dog. Your neighbours are arseholes.

What a shame. He sounds like a total bully. Feed the dog chocolate laxatives through the letter box so it shits all over his house! grin

You need to stop cleaning up after them! The neighbours have no incentive to clean, they are happy to let you do it. The management company aren't really going to be bothered as it's being cleaned -by you!

We have a history with them and i refused to interact with the woman and the mess started when she realised i wasn't going to let her use me anymore. So i am pretty sure she does it on purpose.
My DH is one of the gentlest people you'll ever meet as well. They know this about him as well. He was polite as always.
The bloke made out we waited for him to leave to intimidate his DW. That i got really close to him when i pulled up outside in the car. That i put a notice up about their smoking indoors (it was actually a neighbour, i did write on it to add that the smell in the hallways was awful). She tried to be friends with me and talk to me but i didn't do anything.
I did say to her well done, need a man to talk for you, as she was eaves dropping on the whole thing then came out shouting in a towel so her DH came back. God knows what she said to DH to exaggerate it as i know she loves playing victim and DH doesn't realise how much she lies to him!!

Are we talking about dog poo or just footprints?
