Would you knock on and ask them to stop letting there dog go outside our house or aibu?

I can't stand the smell of dog piss I have a dog but he goes out the back.

It's well away from your garden. YABU.
Unless you bend at the knees and sniff it up you won't smell it above the usual traffic fumes

As someone who’s dog just won’t go in the garden, I’ve sympathy with the neighbour a little. Ours sometimes wees on the way to the park (a two min walk) although we try to make sure he doesn’t.
Does your neighbour just walk him on he street or is he just having a slip on the way somewhere else?

As it's going on the pavement and not on your property, then yes you're being unreasonable, the dog is permitted to pee there. And you can't stop every dog peeing there.

Dog pee just gets washed away with the rain though, so I'm not sure of the issue.

YABVU. You want the dog to cross its legs for a minute and piss outside next door's house instead?

Rather than take a photo, pour water if it bothers you 🤷‍♀️

I can understand your irritation. One of my neighbour’s dogs pees on our gatepost every day, then my male dogs pee on top of it if I don’t catch them quick enough and it’s just getting smellier and smellier.

You just need to Chuck a bowl I’d water and washing up liquid over it and it’s gone though.

YABU and a bit ridiculous .

Bucket of bleach/disinfectant/detergent over the area might help to deter it.

You're being utterly ludicrous. It's the pavement not your garden.

Janedoughnut Wed 20-Mar-19 09:35:52

I wouldn't like it but I don't think you can say anything without looking a bit odd.

Can ibe nosy and ask if your gap is a large path or a small driveway for a smart car.

jeanniebrownhair Wed 20-Mar-19 09:36:43

and that is why I ask people to take their shoes off when they come in to our house smile

OP I think if you pour disinfectant on it the dog won't pee there any more.

flumpybear Wed 20-Mar-19 09:36:47

Take your dog to piss outside their house shockwink

countrygardenx Wed 20-Mar-19 09:37:28

Honestly I just can't bare the smell it's so strong never known dog pee to smell like it.

BigButtonsOnMyPhone Wed 20-Mar-19 09:38:18

I work at home and used to watch dogs weeing on my gates all the time - I think once one dog pees somewhere, they all do. I bought a spray from the garden center and put it on the gates - the peeing stopped immediately and has never restarted.

GreenFingersWouldBeHandy Wed 20-Mar-19 09:39:59

Just slosh a bowl of soapy water over it. Sorted.

YABU and a bit precious over the pavement outside your property.

They do. OP would be better off getting outside with some strong disinfectant & that might deter any and all dogs.

ChardonnaysPrettySister Wed 20-Mar-19 09:44:35

It’s on the pavement.

YABU

Chuck some bleach on it

Sorted

Climbingahoneytree Wed 20-Mar-19 09:47:30

YABVU. It's a public pavement.
Slosh some diluted disinfectant over it but dogs pee over other dogs pee.
If you speak to your neighbour about this I would expect a bit of a bad reaction rightly so

countrygardenx Wed 20-Mar-19 09:47:43

I know it's on the pavement but when DS jumps out of the car there is usually a puddle of piss. Any hoo I will try disinfectant see if that works!

SauvingnonBlanketyBlanc Wed 20-Mar-19 09:48:49

Zoflora the pavement

GreatDuckCookery6211 Wed 20-Mar-19 09:48:50

Are they with the dog when he pees? Just throw some hot water and bleach down, he’s obviously got into the habit because of the scent. Tbh you can’t stop a dog from cocking his leg for a pee once they started!
