Dog poo sign?!


Having lots of issues with people letting their dogs poo and not picking it up. Especially in the alley between our road and the next. The kids have stepped in it, my pram wheels have gone through it and the final straw was my ds2 putting his hands in it today.
I wrote to the council but they've done nothing so today I've ordered a banner to put in the alley. If it Doesn't stop people doing it at least I'll feel like I've done something and maybe they'll know people aren't happy. What do I write on it?! I was going to write something very passive aggressive but I don't know whether to just put 'clean up after your dog'. It's a nice area so I don't know how it'll go down but the whole situation is strange as no one would travel here to walk their dog so i imagine the culprits are local

Erghhh this is driving me mad at the moment. The amount of dog poo that we have to avoid in the morning on our way to school is shocking. Before the Christmas holidays my five year old stood in it on the way to school he was so upset. Its driving me mad especially when I get it all over my pram wheels as I then need to hose the pram down and let it dry before it can come inside the house. Some people are so selfish and ignorant. I have a Dog and I wouldnt dream of not picking his poo up. I have nappy sacks in every coat pocket and bag just incase. There are lots of signs up saying to pick up or you will get fined and there are loads of dog poo bins so no excuses x

Not sure what you could write but in poundland they sell dummy security cameras, stick a couple of them down the alley and I bet people won't do it anymore.

Have you rang the council they co e and clean up where we live if reported by phone.

Not sure what to write on the banner I see a lot of houses with council issued signs with clean up after your dog and a picture on then the councils name.

Someone has let their dog poo on our front lawn.. The sign is here but between one thing and another it's not gone up yet so hubby is putting it up now. Hubby wonders whether it's a fox? But it's a huge pile of (tmi) reddish poo so could it be a fox? I've never seen thm round here.

This drives me bananas. We have two dogs and I would never leave a poo behind, even though they are tiny!

There is a big park near my house where dogs can run off-leash and I swear people must just turn their backs and leave them to it. This is in literally the most expensive suburb in the country, so I think there are lazy sods in every area.

I would write something like "Dog poo is a health hazard. Please pick up after your dog." Or "Please pick up after your dog. This area is being monitored." (Well, you're keeping an eye on it, aren't you?!) Or, better still: "Pick up your dog poo, you disgusting twats. Your mothers would be ashamed."

Argh it's disgusting isn't it, unfortunately no area is immune, I don't know the solution because people are just disgusting.
