Clean up after your dog

I am so annoyed with the amount of poop left by people dogs in Netcong. A tall guy ended up letting their dog go on my next door neighbors and then i caught them but they never cleaned it up. Next time it happens i am following the person home and contacting the police. It is rude to leave your dogs poop behind. Anyone know who is doing it??
you got that right

these people should have their dogs shit in their own yard before taking them for a walk.

that is gross /// call the cops for sure.

I've seen people allow their dogs to go right up to the flowers and bushes near the houses and on the lawns. Even if you clean it up there's still dog crap left on the grass. It's a disgrace. Have some respect!!!!****CURB YOUR DOG**** or have them crap in your own yard!!!!

I would rather have our newly adopted dog who loves to go for walks, do her business in our own yard. I don't want to ruin anyone else's yard/lawn. Never really wanted another dog, but got suckered into it.(I already knew how much of a responsibility it is) I grew up with three dogs at the same time when I was younger. We have a big enough yard for her to go. Only then, after she does her business, we will then go for walks. Been a long time, so hopefully everything goes well. I don't want to upset my neighbors; that's for sure, they're all great!!!!
I agree

I have also seen poop at the park on Dell. I don't get why these people do this. I have a dog and I try and have him go in the back yard just because i hate on walks his poops get really mushy and I only allow him to poop in the park grass area at the end by the fields on weeds and then I rip the grass with the poop. But I would never just leave it. It goes into our drinking water. I always clean up my dogs poop in the back yard too weekly. I don't get people. But I agree call the cops.

Do you know that dog crap can taminate your drinking water. I am not sure if you know that Netcong water is well water which means under ground water is what you drink. Also it is nasty that people don't clean up after their dogs when they go to the bathroom on other peoples lawn. Now if you do not see it as a problem, can i please send the guy who does not clean up to your house. Second people probably like you waste your time about talking of a plumber and his business and the school parking situtation. This atleast affects the whole town and our health. Also bacteria and viruses are food in poop. This past winter while walking I noticed over a week 14 poop piles along all the roads. It is from a very large dog. Also at the park there is some that is I would say 6 inches in diameter. I enjoy walking outside and think this was a better topic then bashing someone because of who they date or their thoughts. But if you do not have something to say on the topic then don't speak.

You are so right! It is bad enough we have to deal with the geese, there is no need to add dog poop to the problem. I have been fortunate not to have poop on my yard but I see it in the park where my child plays. I do not want her to run in it or worse. And I do not want it in my water supply either.

This is happening more and more around town.

Can someone please take a picture or get a name of the people that are doing this.

The we can call town hall and have the Animal control guy give them a ticket.Once he is made an example of it should help. Like the plumber family.

PET owners please be respectful.

Now did you actually measure the apparent "piece of evidence" with a ruler or measuring tape that you carry with you?? And exactly what size dog is it? Is it labrador size or more like that of a terrier? Because we could say large dog to medium large dog and the "poop piles" that they generate could be almost the exact same size so it could be very confusing! And 14 piles you say?? Now would that be exactly 14 or possioble more like 12-13 piles of "poop" because you need to have your facts correct before you start accusing the poor dogs in this area. Now is there a "poop pile" kit that i can purchase so when i'm out walking i can get very accurate information on size, color, contents, and what size dog the feces came from. No i'm being very serious here in fact i'll be in charge of monitoring all of the geese poop down by the lake that is also severely contaminating our water and you be in charge of the more domescile poop on the sides of the road! So let's meet for coffee so we can properly document who is going to do what so we dont mistakenly end up doing each other's jobs!! Thankyou and thanks for bringing this very tragic story to everyone's attention!!

With all seriousness...

Good, I'm glad someone will take care of it. Here is Chapter 222 -5 from the Netcong Ordinances to help you enforce it. You can find it on the town website as well.

As soon as you get to work the citizens of Netcong can reap the benefits of collecting the fines. Up to $2,000 per offense. Plus you can get some exercise at the same time. They have laws like this for a reason.

Chapter 222 -5

A. The provisions of this chapter shall be enforced by the Police Department of the Borough of Netcong.
B. Any person, firm or corporation who or which is found to be in violation of any of the provisions of this Chapter shall, upon conviction, be punished by a fine not to exceed $2,000 or by imprisonment in the County jail for a period not to exceed 90 days, or by both such fine and imprisonment, and each violation of any of the provisions of this chapter and each day the same is violated shall be deemed and taken to be a separate and distinct offense.

You gotta find out who the guy is and report him to the police because there is no way you should be cleaning up his dogs crap.

It really is a problem here in town because a lot of people own dogs and half of them are dumber than their animals.

Hang a plastic bag on the lawn with a note for the guy to clean up the crap or you will call the cops.

Please report back.

What a great idea!! I cannot stand people that do not clean up after their dog. That's just wrong!!
Is he doing it at night so no one can see he's being 'sneaky'? My dog loves to walk, but not until she does her business in our own back yard. I do not like going for walks only because she smells where every other dog went. I do tend to her and as I remember, IT'S THE LAW to clean up after your furry friend. Anyone that does not abide by the law is pure crap!!(pun intended).
