Why are there so many people in the neighborhood that do not think walking my dog around my block is appropriate? I am very responsible and give no reason for their issues.I pick up his waste dutifully,he is under control at ALL times. yet just him walking on their front lawns sends them into a frenzy! My dog is like my child, and those that have dogs show no emotions toward them and leave them chained in the yards. They yell and speak vulgar language as I walk by. All I can do is pray for them. As far as I know I am not violating any laws!!!

Why? A lot of people are nuts and a lot of the rest are just stupid.

At the other end... when we go walking Cheech is called over and up onto front porches.
Conveniently he is (almost) never hooked onto a leash so he can do just that...
otherwise he'll be poking and sniffing and chasing after squirrels and rabbits as we go.

Nope, don't walk across peoples lawns with your dog. Use the sidewalks. And if there are none available where you live take your dog to an appropriate area where you can walk him.

I would not want people using my lawn as a walk way, very soon there would be a noticeable trail on it that they've made.

I take my dog on frequent walks and he is never, ever allowed to walk on private lawns.

OP, most likely they are thinking of a scenario like this:
Dog Owners let Dogs Poop And Urine on my property

"around your block" is quite different from letting him walk on other people's front lawns. For one thing, if he is on a long lead, he is not under your control. Is the waste you are dutifully picking up on someone's lawn?


Find a place for him to relieve himself and take him there every time. Clean up after him. Walk him around the block a couple of times on a short lead.


If you want him to ramble, find a dog park.

THIS is what they likely have issues with. Keep your dog OFF their lawns. He has no business walking on their lawns.

I have a dog. I walk him. I let him pee and poo on MY lawn and on public areas, but never on other's lawns. I detest when others allow their dogs to do their business on my lawn.

Will have to agree with PeachSalsa. Before I had a dog I was similar to those you speak of. I was never vocal about it, but definitely got agitated when people walked their dogs on my lawn. Many wouldn't pick up their dog's poop, or the dogs would go through our flowers. Many take pride in their lawn/gardens so that's probably why they get upset.

Now, I don't allow my dog to walk on others lawns, and definitely not relieve himself.

This sounds so bazaar!

Do you think all these people have no emotions toward dogs in general or are bothered by you walking your dog on their front lawns??

I'd be ticked too if you walked your dog on my lawn and, I have a dog! Dog urine kills grass. Dog urine causes other dogs to mark in the same space. I don't want dogs, especially other dogs using my little yard as a bathroom. I also use that same thought process for my neighbors- and do not walk my dog on their lawns!

Yikes!
