Stopping other people's dogs from going on my drive

I have at least one person who kindly lets their dog do its stuff on my drive and leaves it. I have a little girl and I have to do something. I cant wait this person out (due to working and layout of house) and a whole new CCTV thing is not an option. I also have a cat.

Is there any repellent I could use that won't be horrible for the other dogs walking past (of which there are a lot) and cats?

Could you try an angry sign? 'Don't let your dog shit on my driveway you filthy bastard' or similar?

You need to confront them you know who they are if they are leaving dog poo what elsecan you do

Contact the dog warden and explain what is happening. Hopefully they will be able to give you some advice.

Gates/signs not really an option as it's a drive way, that's why I was thinking repellent or maybe deterrent is the right word, nothing too horrible but the dogs/cats won't want to go to that exact spot (same place pretty much) and not deter them (especially my cat) from the whole area

That's awful I'd leave a sign saying"please pick up your dog mess, if your dog fouls my drive I will report you using the surveillance cameras which are installed"

You can put gates over a driveway.

Buy some playground chalk ( the big, thick sticks ) and write a message. Something along the lines "Do not let your dog piss and shit on my drive you selfish fucker" should do it.

Lol chalk is not a bad idea, I'd have to keep the swearing to a minimum as it's by a school but so tempted. Checking the weather forecast now for a couple of dryer days

Swearing is optional 😁 as long as you get your point across.

Gold spray for the turds?
Ask the neighbours who it is?

I don't get dog owners like this - I feel embarrassed if mine starts weeing on someone's drive, and promptly haul off into the nearest gutter.
