Do you think people should clean up dog poop when they are walking their dogs?

The reason I ask is this one neighbor always lets his dog take a crap on our lawn and I'm sick of cleaning it up!  I would understand if it was the kid doing it but it's the DAD and for cripe sakes...I don't have a dog!  I wish people would have some respect!

Yes, I do think that ppl should pick up poop if their dog took a crap on your lawn. No questions asked, it is just the right thing to do!

i hate that

I have two large dogs

and i always carry a belt that is full of bags

I hate going to a park full of crap

people are so rude and lazy

One time i got yelled at...by a man who said i should pick up my dogs poop

as he saw my girl dog squat ...she was peeing

so i told him

PLEASE make sure first before you accuse someone...that infact they are doing what you accusing them of

It kinda ticked me off

as he was very rude about it

OH HELL YEA... I hate it when people let their dog poop and they pretend like nothing is happening. They should be ticketed!

Absolutely! It is completely rude and gross...not to mention a health issue.

Mayeb you should tell the man not to let his dog poop in your yard or if you see him out there take him a plastic bag and ask him to clean it up.

YES YES YES! I have 2 dogs and we clean the poop in OUR yard weekly. If we are walking them or they stray into our neighbors yard we clean it up then and there. We live in a condo and have a community space that we share with the other residents in our building, my neighbor at the end has 2 little dogs and they NEVER clean up the poop. My son and his friends play back there and are constantly getting poop on their shoes and clothes. It's disgusting and unsanitary. On many occasions I have watched them and wanted to go out and pick it up put it on their porch, set it on fire and ring their doorbell. But hubby said that wld be childish *lol*! But it burns me up, it takes 5 seconds to pick the s%^t up!

Absolutely people should pick up after their dogs!!  I have a big problem with that,  considering we live on a large corner lot and people seem to think our yard is common area and they let their dogs crap out there all the time.  I am going to get some signs made but just haven't gotten around to it yet.  I carry poop bags with me all the time (tied to my dog's leash) so I can clean up if he poops somewhere he shouldn't.  It is common courtesy,  and you would think,  common sense,  but some people are just not too smart or polite.
