To clarify, are you talking about the grass in front of your home or the grass between the sidewalk and road?

I have always been taught that it is ok to let dog pee on then grass next to the road and never to allow them on the rest of the grass. Is this not common etiquette? My dog only goes on the grass on my property but if a neighbor lets their dog go on the strip of grass I don’t mind as long as they pick up poo, they have to go somewhere.



If this was the case, I'd be fine with it but we don't have sidewalks in my neighborhood so the dog is on my grass in the the middle of the lawn.
I don't allow my children to walk on my neighbors' lawns when they walk down the street so I don't see why people think it's ok for their dog to pee on it.
Especially since about five house down from me there is a strip of land that no one owns that all my other neighbors walk their dogs to.



I totally agree with this. Strip next to the road, fine.. my lawn, no thank you. My neighborhood does not have sidewalks so that is not an option, but dog owners can pull them off the grass or walk in an area that is more public. I agree with the children analogy, my kids know not to run or walk on other people's lawns. I find it disrespectful and rude. I dont really understand how dog owners dont think its rude. Some people work hard on their lawns and take pride in it ..either way its their private property, and neither my kids nor anyone's dog has a right to be on it without permission. I haven't noticed any burn marks on my grass from pee but my neighbors have and they get hella pissed off when dogs pee on their lawns.



We don't have sidewalks either so there is no strip of grass and to be completely technical the first 6 feet of our property is technically an easement owned by the town, not the individual property owner. So I guess TECHNICALLY my dog is peeing on town property, not individual homeowner property. Not sure if that makes a difference.

If my dog's pee burned the lawn I would definitely be more conscious of it. But it doesn't. So I am not. And maybe if I had a really large dog I would think more of it. But I don't. My dog probably pees about two tablespoons max.

Also in my neighborhood kids run all over everyone's lawns. In fact, many of the kids cut thru people's backyards. We have parks that you need to go thru certain backyards to get to and the people have signs just asking people to make sure they close the gate after they walk through!

Honestly I don't know that I could live in a place where it was commonplace for people to care this much about a lawn or their private property. Where I am, it's more about community, kids playing in the street having fun and feeling safe. Not about how green your lawn is.




Actually, I am pretty sure we live in the same town and i'm telling you many people in that town don't like having dog pee on their lawn. I literally had a conversation with a bunch of my neighbors about this over the weekend so i have empiracle data lol
Can't it be about community, kids playing and feeling safe AND respecting people's private property? I personally don't have this issue but I'm surprised how you can't see how some people would not be happy about other people's dogs peeing on their lawn especially in an affluent town where people spend a lot of money making sure their house has nice curb appeal and is well manicured etc.

I have a feeling that there are very few brown spots in my area because everyone has inground sprinklers and it probably gets washed away relatively quickly. That combined with the weekly landscaping that takes care of anything else.

Here's a good question - Are people also bothered by people that have outdoor cats that roam all over the neighborhood? Our good friends have one. We love it when we spot it around the neighborhood. He goes in and out of backyards and is all over everyone's front lawns.... Thoughts?

People can be very bothered by outdoor cats.

I’m not because I LOVE cats, but I have read of horror stories (poisoning, bringing to the shelter, etc.) of people doing anything to get a cat away from their property because they consider them a pest.

Or they have the blades on the mower to cut too short which with not enough water, the grass will burn when the weather is warm. Chat Icon

I agree , many people have landscapers and inground sprinklers perhaps that's why i never have brown spots so it doesn't phase me. Just pointing out that', whether your particular neighbors are bothered or not, if they're not, then that's great for you--/ many many people are - so a universal sentiment of "walking my dog on someone's lawn " is perfectly ok , just isn't accurate .

As for the feral cats- huge huge issue that personally i find more maddening than dog pee by far !

Yeah, figured it would. My dog pees on every bush and pole he sees. Never has anyone been out there yelling at him to stop. I could see my dad back in the 80's saying something though as he didn't even like us walking on his lawn. Chat Icon Chat Icon

We don't have sidewalks either so there is no strip of grass and to be completely technical the first 6 feet of our property is technically an easement owned by the town, not the individual property owner. So I guess TECHNICALLY my dog is peeing on town property, not individual homeowner property. Not sure if that makes a difference.

If my dog's pee burned the lawn I would definitely be more conscious of it. But it doesn't. So I am not. And maybe if I had a really large dog I would think more of it. But I don't. My dog probably pees about two tablespoons max.

Also in my neighborhood kids run all over everyone's lawns. In fact, many of the kids cut thru people's backyards. We have parks that you need to go thru certain backyards to get to and the people have signs just asking people to make sure they close the gate after they walk through!

Honestly I don't know that I could live in a place where it was commonplace for people to care this much about a lawn or their private property. Where I am, it's more about community, kids playing in the street having fun and feeling safe. Not about how green your lawn is.




Actually, I am pretty sure we live in the same town and i'm telling you many people in that town don't like having dog pee on their lawn. I literally had a conversation with a bunch of my neighbors about this over the weekend so i have empiracle data lol
Can't it be about community, kids playing and feeling safe AND respecting people's private property? I personally don't have this issue but I'm surprised how you can't see how some people would not be happy about other people's dogs peeing on their lawn especially in an affluent town where people spend a lot of money making sure their house has nice curb appeal and is well manicured etc.

I am sure with the money these people have they can get their landscapers to put in some sod over the area if it is the same place all the time. Does sod burn? Chat Icon Chat Icon



Sod is just pre grown grass so yes, it will burn



Yeah, figured it would. My dog pees on every bush and pole he sees. Never has anyone been out there yelling at him to stop. I could see my dad back in the 80's saying something though as he didn't even like us walking on his lawn. Chat Icon Chat Icon



Yeah it doesn't bother me either. The only thing that really pissed me off was when someone left a steaming pile of dog poop on our lawn. I look outside and see DH going out there with a big shovel and scooping it off the lawn and then had to throw it in OUR garbage to stink.
I was SOOO pissed.

To clarify, are you talking about the grass in front of your home or the grass between the sidewalk and road?

I have always been taught that it is ok to let dog pee on then grass next to the road and never to allow them on the rest of the grass. Is this not common etiquette? My dog only goes on the grass on my property but if a neighbor lets their dog go on the strip of grass I don’t mind as long as they pick up poo, they have to go somewhere.



If this was the case, I'd be fine with it but we don't have sidewalks in my neighborhood so the dog is on my grass in the the middle of the lawn.
I don't allow my children to walk on my neighbors' lawns when they walk down the street so I don't see why people think it's ok for their dog to pee on it.
Especially since about five house down from me there is a strip of land that no one owns that all my other neighbors walk their dogs to.



I totally agree with this. Strip next to the road, fine.. my lawn, no thank you. My neighborhood does not have sidewalks so that is not an option, but dog owners can pull them off the grass or walk in an area that is more public. I agree with the children analogy, my kids know not to run or walk on other people's lawns. I find it disrespectful and rude. I dont really understand how dog owners dont think its rude. Some people work hard on their lawns and take pride in it ..either way its their private property, and neither my kids nor anyone's dog has a right to be on it without permission. I haven't noticed any burn marks on my grass from pee but my neighbors have and they get hella pissed off when dogs pee on their lawns.

Yeah that would annoy me. People walk their dogs on the other side of my street and if anyone they allow them to pee and poop over there but I always see people pick up the poop.

Im sorry, you cant compare a roaming cat peeing all over the place vs. a dog that is on a leash with the owner in control of where it goes to the bathroom.

I wasn't comparing. I was just asking if they bothered people. But a roaming cat is at the discretion of the owner if we are talking about outdoor cats that are pets, not strays. If I choose to let my cat outdoors to roam freely I have to assume it is peeing and pooping on lawns no? And doing whatever else - going into people's backyards, walking across their private property etc.

People letting their pet cats outside is a big pet peeve of mine not because of it peeing on lawns but because of the dangers you are putting that cat in by letting it outside at all.
It's just something I feel very strongly about as a cat owner

agree. All that cat needs to do is end up in a yard with a Dog that has a high prey drive (and the obvious - hit by a car)


Wild animals and stray animals is not the same as a dog on a leash controlled by their family member. No comparison. Oh and I have a landscaper and sprinklers - still have pee spots in the backyard bc that’s where my dogs pee. Front - none. So the water washing it away from your sprinkler isn’t exactly gonna do anything unless if turns on immediately after the pee and helps clear it

neighbors- WWYD?

We have sidewalks and when we walk our dog we walk here on the street or I walk her on the sidewalk on a tight leash so she doesn't pee on my neighbors lawns. I do think it's rude for dogs to pee consistently on peoples lawns. With that said around the corner from us is public property and once we hit that on our walk I let her do her business on the grass.

I have to say 95% of my neighbors with dogs do the same as I do. I would be very annoyed if one of my neighbors consistently allowed their dog to pee on my lawn and make burn spots.

In the past week I’ve almost run over my neighbors cat twice and almost locked it in my garage (ok I’m exaggerating about the running over but he has been under my car and it’s creepy that after I back out of my driveway, I look forward and he’s staring at me lol)

Right but an outdoor cat that is someone's pet is not a wild animal - it's a pet that someone chooses to let roam freely around the neighborhood.

Re: neighbors- WWYD?

Here's a good question - Are people also bothered by people that have outdoor cats that roam all over the neighborhood? Our good friends have one. We love it when we spot it around the neighborhood. He goes in and out of backyards and is all over everyone's front lawns.... Thoughts?



Yes.

It's gross and inhumane for reasons others described. And I'm not particularly a cat person, but I am an animal person and a "keep your fukking pets safe" person.

One day I smelled urine by my front door. I was annoyed but forgot about it. Then the next night it got really cold, as in close to single digits. I heard crying outside my front door and it was a cat. Long story short we took it in - my dog had a shit fit but we managed - and the next day brought it to the town to see if the owners would claim it. To my surprise, they did. Long story short this cat has been found roaming the neighborhood in the freezing cold a few times by others in the area. We have agreed that if we see it again we are keeping it. The whole thing made us so p!ssed. The night we took it in we ran out and bought cat food which it absolutely inhaled. We know where the owners live and it's not super close - a few blocks away, which means it wandered quite a bit. It's obviously not well cared for.

A bit of a tangent but that brought back infuriating memories.

I actually have my one cat now because of owners who did that. They would put this poor baby out in snowstorms and blizzards. Luckily the neighbor worked with a cat rescue and when she saw this happen more than once she took the cat in during a blizzard, called the SCPCA and the owner was fined for animal cruelty and agreed to surrender the cat to the rescue. The neighbor who took the cat in fostered her until we adopted her through the rescue.
She's a total love and I'm so glad we got her out of that situation. I really don't' understand how people can be so cruel to their pets.

An outdoor cat is not on a leash with their owner holding it watching and allowing it to piss all over their neighbors lawns.

I don’t think you get it

Yes I get it, but if you have an OUTDOOR cat you are the owner deliberatly letting your pet out, knowing it is going to pee and poop on other people's lawns.

I don't think YOU get it.
