NO pooping zone! neighbor vent and question

So we have these neighbors, they seem nice enough but they have a dog and they walk him to all of our yards EXCEPT their own for him to do his business and they never clean it up! I have to dodge crap on my way to my mailbox and I can't let my kids play in the front yard without worrying that they're going to step in it. And it's not like they even take him for a real walk. They just walk around to 5 or 6 houses and wait for him to crap and then take him home. I am either going to write them an anonymous letter or put a no pooping sign in my front yard but I'm not sure which one to do. Do I write a letter or do I just put up a sign?

Catch it on video. Most cities have laws or ordinances about picking up your dogs shit.

I don't want to make it obvious that it was me if I do something like that. The sign would be a dead give away. I'm being totally passive aggressive. :/

My aunt scooped up the neighbours dogs poop from her yard and left it in their mailbox with an anonymous note saying please pick up after your dog. Never had a problem again.

I highly doubt anything would happen and I don't want them to get fined, I just want them to clean up after their mutt.

I'd just talk with them. Not anonymously or anything else. Speaking with them on an adult level should resolve the issue.
