Is there a rule/law against this? It is disgusting!
Do a search on "dog poop".

If people used their own yards for the dog to eliminate, they wouldn't have to pick up each and every time.

I'm fortunate to have a small dog so I don't have to carry a large bag. What always do is carry extra plastic bags (sandwich bags - these are very inexpensive compared to commercial dog bags) That way I will have one to offer to someone not picking up after their dog. I have done this several times over the years. They are always friendly. Just a friendly reminder and no need to be nasty. I did run into an older woman who was walking away from her dog's deposit. She informed me that "I never pick up that stuff!"

Didn't you see the post some months back about a neighbor who let their dog eliminate in their own yard, and the neighbor didn't pick it up, in their own yard. The person who posted was furious. Ok, so here you have someone using their own yard and someone else not liking that. You can't win. There are always going to be a few who don't pick up. Maybe it's health reasons.

My husband recently had a very serious back operation, on the days I work he would have to walk our dog, but he couldn't bend down to pick up. So when I came home from work he would tell me where the dog went and I would go back and pick up. So please don't say most dog owners are irresponsible. I also have picked up after other dogs, just maybe their owner for whatever reason couldn't bend down that day.

We pick up each and every time after our dogs go. We don't want the flies that would be attracted and subsequent maggots, and don't want the smell either. How gross!

Yes, we "pick up each and every time." To not do that is disgusting!

To Love2Cruise: There are scoops you can buy which your husband can use without bending down. The pet stores have them.

Yes we did look at the scooper option, but walking cane in one hand, dog on leash in other hand, no room for scooper. However he is better now and can go back to stooping, just not bending.

Glad to hear your husband is doing better. We use a narrow leaf-type rake and a dust pan with a long handle, which works very well for us.

Everyone should use what's best for them, even if it's a plastic WalMart bag!
