I think the issue here is the extent that the park goes to in enforcing its rules. Some parks will say "here are the pet rules, please follow them, ok." Others will say "you are being watched. If we find you failing to obey all rules, you will be evicted." This in unnecessary. Rarely will I find a park covered with poop. Rarely will I find one with none at all. Let's just agree that common sense and courtesy is always appreciated.
Glad you are all enjoying my thread.

Mainlander, I certianly hope that you will follow the rules and leash your dog. Rules are rules and all are everyone to obey or take it upon yoreself to get the rules changed through proper channels.

I know you say your dog is well behaved, but I was recently bitten by a neighbors "well behaved and trained" part Lab dog. I was riding my bike on a public street. All dogs are animals and are only obidient to a certian degree...some more than others.

SO please leash your dog as required.

I clean up after my dog 100 % of the time and it really bothers me to see landmines from other dogs. If im caught without a bag I improvise. Find a leaf or a piece of paper.

Cleaning up after your dog % 95 of the time is irresponsible what ever the reason. 5% is alot of poop.

Yes, rules are rules. Even though your dog is trained, you never know. And I would hate for my grandchildren to get hurt by a dog that isn't on a leash. And I am sure you would hate that, also. Wouldn't it just be easier to put a leash on your dog????

I ALWAYS pick up after my two pugs 100% of the time,I would be embarrased not to.I am responsible for them, not somebody else. As far as leashes, I say leash them or keep them inside. I can't count the number of times my dogs and I have been attacked by the so called "Well behaved and Trained" dogs not on a leash. Then from the owner I get "I am so sorry, he has never done that before".Lets all be responsible pet owners.Unfortunately in todays society some people think the rules apply to everybody but them

I (almost) can't believe nine pages of dialogue on this subject. My wife and I often joke about how the retired generation seems to have a favorite hobby - collecting dog poop!

Sorry, guys, just couldn't resist. Yes, we're retired, too; no, we no longer have a pet - but lots of "granddoggies," as my dil says, which we visit fairly often.

I am not retired but after nine pages I couldn't resist to chime in. My issue is not with dog poop but with people who think the rules apply to everybody but them. It goes for evrything in life not just picking up poop. If there are rules it's for everybody else for some people. It could be driving rules, HOA rules, you name it, rules don't apply to them!

Love the comment about the retirees having a new hobby--dog poop collecting! Have you ever thought that dogs must really think they are very, very special! So special we even keep their poop in little bags,(LOL)! I am a retiree that definitely cleans up after her dogs.

It often appears that dogs are leading us around on leashes and we pick up their poop. How must this look to an alien from outer space looking down on us. They would obviously deduct that humans are slaves to dogs and that dogs are the intelligent life on earth.

All the rules in the world won't help some people.

and the RVrs that are offended by dogs will be happy too.
Lest we all confuse the issue, it is not the dogs that offend us. What is offensive is someone else's dog poop on the bottom of my shoe, and even more so, the owner that permitted it to happen.

We love dogs, and dog owners, just not the inconsiderate ones - and I'll bet it's the same with you. I suspect the inconsiderate ones are keeping mum and ignoring all of this. I doubt seriously we'll see them posting here, and for the same reason that their dogs are a problem for the rest of us.

blacktie...You are definitely on the mark with your post. I doubt very few "non-pet pick-ups" will post here.
I have always "marked the spot" if I do run out of bags- and I will walk back to do "clean-up"

I usually carry a extra bag or two when I have the dogs out. I graciously offer the offender an bag in case they do not have one and have been told....
-Thank you...maybe once or twice.
-Never mind I have one...they dig it out of a pocket
-Why don't you mind your own *@^%*(@^%% business...next stop is to the office to report them.

But you are right. The ones that need to see this are not the ones to read this forum...you need to be able to read first.

Ken
