Why? Wouldn't the dog just move over a little bit and pee where there is no pepper?

I have three shelties. They have been trained not to pee on other people's lawns. They also only poop in an area we made in our yard for them. It is to the point where my younger dog runs to the back of our yard after a walk to do what he needs to do. We only go about a 1/4 mile near houses to get to the local bike path where they can pee their little hearts out but one of my neighbors freaks out about my dogs even walking on "her" lawn. I say hers because there is no sidewalk. Side walk in front of the other houses, just not hers. Very weird. But she tells me she expects me to walk in the street with them and gets mad when I refuse. Another neighbor warned me she was putting out poisoned balls of white bread to keep dogs off "her" lawn. Some people are nuts.

I think most people understand they need to "Curb" their dog which entails keeping it on a lease, cleaning up, and walking near the curb. I do this on a consistent basis but sometimes dogs meander on a portion of people's front lawn.

It's not on purpose, but sometimes it very hard to stop your dog from urinating on another person's lawn. People get so defensive about dogs being on their property and some people are are making nasty comments to me when I walk my small dog in Ventnor, NJ.

The people in Ventnor, NJ are very nasty about dogs on their property--as I was told my dog must stay on the curb. If you don't want anyone near/on your front lawn property, then don't buy a house on the corner of a busy street! Live in a more rural or densely populated area!

We keep our dog on the curb side on the grass (off the lawn connected to someone's home) and we sometimes get yelled at by irate neighbors. If we go into a neighborhood without sidewalks and our dog needs to go we try to keep her as close to the street as possible and of course clean up the mess.
