Default walkin' the dog

the recent leash thread and the multitude of poop threads in this forum have made me wonder...why do dog owners take their dogs for their am/pm constitutional BEFORE they have taken care of business instead of AFTER they have used their OWN property for same. growing up with our dogs, not one of us was allowed to take the dog off property until AFTER they were properly relieved. just wonderin'......

Probably because of the fact that so few Villages homes have fences. Most of the dogwalkers in our neighbor clean up after their pets when they walk them.

sorry, but my dogs need to walk before they can do their business - can only walk around in circles so many times in your yard - I feel fortunate we have a pump station area where they can relieve themselves, I can pick it up, and no harm done!

if you take them to yoga, it works faster than walking

Not having a fence is not a reason, it's an excuse. We have two dogs in a designer with an invisible fence. The dogs stay in our yard with either my wife or me outside with them until they take care of business. The dogs know the routine so it's no problem at all. There's no way I'd walk dogs and let them use a neigbor's yard for a latrine. That's just rude and inconsiderate. Your dog should use your yard and only your yard.

Excellent Bluedog, as a dog owner we also never allowed our dog to mess in other peoples yards, dog urine especially females can kill grass..
