This thread is a joke. Someone else's dog should not be my responsibility. I should not have to pay for new grass, fertilizer, sod, etc. from a dog destroying my lawn. For someone to even think this is acceptable is beyond me. Glad to hear the Town of Hempstead makes this illegal.

Is it really that hard to make your dog poop or pee on the street? No. Just yank the damn leash away from people's lawns, or find some neighborhood spot like others have mentioned. Disgusting.

My question is, who actually owns that strip of grass between the street and sidewalk? I have searched and searched but cannot find an absolute answer. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
Why don't you have your dog just pee on your own property? I would be pissed if someone's dog peed on mine.

Bear traps. That'll stop 'em!
And if you get in trouble you just say you thought you saw a bear and wanted to protect yourself. Hey, could happen. Bears escape from zoo's from time to time...

This was a fun thread to read. I totally agree with those people defending the complaining homeowner. I would be pretty pissed if I saw a dog urinating on my grass, even if it is the strip between the sidewalk and the street. I mow it, I maintain it, and want it to look nice. The fact that the dog owner repeatedly lets their dog go there is just rude. Have the dog go in your backyard or on the street. To make the argument that people have the right to let their dog urinate on this strip of grass because it belongs to the town (which it doesn't, by the way) is ignoring that this is really an issue of common courtesy.

And I will share my perspective on parking. I understand sometimes there is a need for others to park in front of my house. But, if they have space open in front of their house and they park in front of my house anyway, that is just rude. I should not have to look at their car all day just because they don't want to look at it themselves.

Default So I think I may be having the same problem, and need help!

A few weeks ago, I noticed a neighbor looking at my dog and I in a creepy manor. This happened again last friday. I know his direct neighbor, so I called her to inquire about him. I learned that he is "the troublemaker" in town. He causes problems for everyone, in particular, dog owners. Her exact words to me were, stay away from him. She herself has had many problems with him. I come home from work that evening, take my baby boy out for a walk, only to come home to him and his son banging on my back door. I ask him how I can help him, and he starts shouting at me, telling me that my dog pees [mod] language [/mod] all over his lawn, etc. I said, sir I think you have me confused with someone else. He then tells me that he doesn't and that he WATCHES me every morning. Then says, do you think im stalking you. Yes, a bit creepy. Then he starts yelling some more about other nonsense, so I tell him that this conversation is over. I call the police, and they disbatched 2 officers, who came to here my side of the story. They then went to speak with him, and he acted the same way towards them, screaming cursing, etc. They came back to me and said they are putting a report in the system, and if he steps foot on my property again, he will be locked up. Well, this evening, I get home from work to find a page taped to my door section 152-9 Nuisances by dogs. I called the police back, and they tell me that I can not prove that it was him. I don't know what to do! Please, any advise anyone can offer me is extremely appreciated.

I think YOU should go take a dump on his lawn,
like Jim Carey did to his neighbor in "Me, Myself, & Irene"

Erect a No Trespassing sign on the property (who the heck is he to go around to your back door, anyway?)
Follow the instructions the police gave you.
Keep a cheap video camera on you. If he comes to you while walking your dog, tape him, or in the very least keep it hidden and activate it to record what he says.
Don't go near his property.
And yes, if he suggests that he's stalking you, he's stalking you.
If he appears at your door with his son, that's intimidation and harassment.
