Anyone know clever ways to keep the dogs away and keep your lawn poop free?

Can't always catch them or their inconsiderate owners...

There is supposed to be some sprinkler system that detects them on your yard and will automatically come on and only stays on for a few minutes. You can also find signs online that you can put up in your yard about the "poop free zone". Below are some of the links I found.

Here is a link to another thread on C-D about this same subject.

Our solution: A 170 pound English mastiff that does not like other dogs. We have to clean up her poop ourselves, but we trained her to poop only in one place. No other dogs ever come into our yard, or if they do she eats them before they can poop and we do not know about it.

See, that's why she's 170 pounds.

Well, dunno how clever an idea it is, but it's 100% effective: a 4-foot stockade fence, or any other kind of fence that won't allow a small dog to sneak through any gaps.

Stockade has the additional advantage of discouraging cats and other animals as well. Cats can climb over it and get into your yard, but they don't enjoy feeling "trapped" behind it, so you get fewer visitors than if you're fence-less.

Remember, good fences make good neighbors
I also believe in keeping my own pets in my own yard (dogs fenced!) and not letting them run riot all over the neighborhood, annoying everybody else, but I believe that's another forum.
