Second that. We walk our dog in the landscaping. (That tells you something about the standard number of shrubs provided in a spec home!) Took about two days before he caught on that we weren't going anywhere till he peed. Now it's ritual for him. We don't want him killing our grass, let alone someone else's. When we get around to doing some more landscaping, there will be a dedicated spot for him. Poop's different--you can pick that up and no harm done to the grass.

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.
We take our dog on a golf cart ride after he does his business in our yard. Like you say dogs understand and like a routine. Remember, you must be the pack leader to give you pet a happy life.

We have a hundred or more new folks moving in each month and may not know the rules.

Cannot say that I can tell the rule following dog owners by all the dead spots in their lawns due to female dogs peeing. Bushes are kind of hard to pee in for female pooches. So, most dog owners with female canines in the Villages would have dead spots from the urine. I have noticed dead spots in lawns but they look like it's from cinch bugs.

My dog usually pees at Doggie Doo Run Run. The only good sized dog park anywhere near the Villages. The dog parks do have spots of dead grass from where many dogs have peed over many days.

Yes, but further to CFrance's comment, some old dogs need to go more than once and although they have relieved themselves dutifully and responsibly before they have left the comfort of their own domain, the excitement? the joy? the relaxation? of the walk brings on another moment when they need to relieve themselves. It happens ...to the best of us.

As a dog owner who walks the dog, I ALWAYS relive myself before I go for a walk.

My pooch has to mark his territory while taking a walk by going at every other place some other dog has pee'd. So, I rarely take him on walks in Lynnhaven because he has to stop and pee every ten feet. It takes a half hour to go 600 yards unless he is all out of pee.

Seldom though are there any bald spots on lawns where all these neighborhood dogs have been marking their territory.
