Is anyone here aware of dog curbing laws or ordinances that exist in the Kansas City area? I have looked online but don't see anything specifically relating to this.

We have a neighbor that routinely uses his neighbors yards to let his dog poop on and never cleans it up. The church nearby where he usually had the dog poop put up a "Please curb your dog" sign and now he avoiding it more and using our yards. It's ridiculous how lazy this dude is and given his behavior so far I doubt he's going to be persuaded to clean up after his dog. However, the threat of a fine if reported (however unlikely) might help.

Sorry, I can't answer your question. But I'm with you in spirit 100%.

Some areas are better than others with keeping dogs under control and, interestingly, the area where I live now is among the best I have ever seen. When I lived in the KC area many years ago, dog control was generally poor.

People like your neighbor need to be sanctioned hard for their irresponsible and disrespectful behavior. I wish you the best of luck in dealing with this. Unfortunately, from my experience, dog owners can be among society's most difficult people to deal with.

You don't need laws to handle misbehavior.

No idea. I've had dogs when living in several different metro communities, but we always pick up after them, so it's a nonissue. Where we are now, the parks and walking paths all have city-installed biodegradable bag dispensers that are well-stocked, and non-overflowing receptacles to toss poo bags into, which I think really helps encourage people to clean up. I've never noticed a big poop problem around here.

I do really hate it when I'm walking my leashed dogs, they poop, I pick it up, and I STILL get the stinkeye from somebody.

Where I live in Waldo, there are quite a few neighbors, including myself, that put poop bag dispensers in their front easements/curb strip to entice local dog walkers to pick up. I myself have forgot to grab a bag before taking my boxer for a walk, so these come in handy.

At the very least, can you get 'em on trespassing? They are entering your yard and leaving biological waste.
I did find this interesting service and report on the problems of animal waste: Environmental Concerns about Pet Waste

I also found this:
https://www2.municode.com/library/mo...S14-19DIMAREWA

This says: "It shall be unlawful for the person in control of a dog, cat or other animals or fowl to allow the dog, cat or other animals or fowl to deposit manure on public property or on the private property of another person."

Also, I just learned that Kansas City, MO allows the keeping of the usual dogs and cats, and also Vietnamese potbelly pigs and ferrets as pets. Ferrets...a friend of mine had one as a pet when I was in high school. But pigs? We made bacon out of them... >_>
Also, I just learned that I need to have a license for my cat when I move to KCMO. Luckily they're pretty cheap.
