One Homeowner's Technique For Shaming Dog Owners Who Let Their Pets Poop In His Yard

August 17, 2018

This is a very short video highlighting one Australian homeowner's passive-aggressive technique for shaming dog owners who let their pets crap in his yard. I feel his pain.
Honestly, sometimes I feel that I'm the only one in my entire neighborhood who picks up after their dog. And I feel like not is a sign of irresponsible pet ownership. Like, if you can't pick up after your dog, what else aren't you doing? You signed up for this. And some of these big dogs, man -- they drop turds you'd be shocked to see left in a toilet. Like come on Hulk, learn how to flush. I wonder how effective this technique is. Of course in my neighborhood it wouldn't be effective at all. People don't care if you post their picture, everyone feels so entitled to live their best, laziest life at the expensive of others that they'll let their dog poop in your yard, KNOWING YOU'RE STANDING RIGHT THERE, then walk away when you try to say something and yell over their shoulder that that your bushes look like shit. I've witnessed it.

Keep going for the whole video, but the gif is pretty much it really.

Thanks to Wendy, who informed me she uses the ol' pick it up yourself and toss it on the owner's porch technique. Classic.

    I had problems at two different houses with neighbors letting their dog(s) take giant dumps in my yard, one of them directly in front of my mailbox. I resolved both problems in the most courteous and civilized way I knew how: I ran outside, scooped it up with a shovel, and before the neighbor could get back inside I flung it all over their driveway and said, "You forgot something!"

    This is glorious.

    I lived in a building where I made a few extra dollars by mowing the lawn / shoveling the walk depending on the season. The lawn area were a pair of rectangles maybe 10 x 6 - not a particularly huge lawn.

    The amount of poop left behind by the other tenants (a whopping whole 5 other apartments) was obscene. There was one dude who let his big dog make bigger poops than me just all over the lawn. There was one lady who would purposely walk onto our street to let her dog poop on our lawn.

    It got so bad the bylaw enforcement officers for the city started leaving notes because of how nasty things would get.

    I really don't miss that building. Especially considering there was a murder in my old apartment earlier this year (and in small town Canada that's pretty rare - like once or twice a year in the greater overall area rare).

    Outrageous! This cruelty must be stopped! #poopshaming #mepoo

    I almost want to go shit on these people's lawn so then they'll have my shit on the lawn and they'll print out a picture of my butt for passersby to see.

    BOYCOTT SHAMPOO! DEMAND REAL POO!

    My "favorite" is when people will pick up their dog's poop with a bag, tie it off and then fucking drop it, leaving it as a packaged shit for.... what? WHY? Do you think you're doing good by keeping people from getting it on their shoe? Might as well carry around some goddamn little flags and just flag the fucking turds. GODDAMNIT take it with you and throw it away you lazy motherfuckers!

  • GeneralDisorder

    I thought the whole point of picking up your dog shit was to throw it at your neighbor you don't like when you get home.

  • I have never seen anyone do this. What the hell? Why would anyone think this is an appropriate way to handle their pet's waste?

  • Bling Nye

    I see it mostly on trails; I've talked to people about it and some have claimed they're leaving them there on the way in, to pick up on the way out, supposedly.... But I've seen them still sitting there the next day... Better to tie it to your dog's collar or leash than leave it on the ground, if you really are too fucking lazy to carry it yourself.

    I have also seen it several times on streets as well, just not as often.

  • Nicholas Conrad

    I also see bags on the trailside frequently, but we do always pick ours up on the way out. We use brightly colored ones, and tie them off on tree branches around eye level to make sure we don't miss them.

    On trails, you might as well just fling it off the trail into the wilderness. It's not like animals don't shit out there everyday anyways.

    *Without bagging it.

  • Bling Nye

    LOL I'm glad you added the caveat. ;)

    I have far, far less of a problem with the fling, but I am personally a firm proponent of "pack it in, pack it out" and while it seems like a dog turd here and there won't make a difference, it can potentially compound with the more people that do it.

    I've seen wilderness get significantly impacted by behaviors that seem fine if just one person does it but multiplied by hundreds and thousands in a season or over time, the effect is significant. Not to mention you have wild animals shitting over a large geographic area, wheras the dog shit would be concentrated within average flinging distance of the trail.

  • TheQiwiMan

    In a truly civilized society, anyone who has a dog and doesn't clean up after it would get the guillotine.

  • Christian Hansmann

    I think the Germans tried that already.

  • Bling Nye

    A little extreme... Just a little though. I'd settle for the owners getting a lifetime sentence of requiring their home to be a designated shitter for the homeless, open 24/7.

  • WhiteEagle2

    The logistics of that would be too difficult. Just give them 100hrs of community service cleaning public restrooms.

    Better yet, community service cleaning up dog shit at dog parks. No gloves allowed.

  • Jenness

    We already have that, it's called San Francisco.

  • Bling Nye

    Well if we're getting literal, I'm fine with that too. :)

    Wouldn't mind if a dog walkers flash mob showed up at the park during their shift either.

  • Corky McButterpants

    No hands allowed... and put in on TV; be more entertaining than kartrashians, etc.
