Dealing with customers and dog shit

Recommended Posts

Yup cat shit is 100% worse than dog shit. I planted a nice row of laurels between myself and my neighbours when we first bought the house. 20 nice hedge trees and all bar 4 died of cat shit and piss. Bought a jack russell in the end and put a stop to the fookers.

Keep some Forestry marker paint in your van. Walk round and apply liberally to all shit left. Their garden will soon look like a shit Banksy 👍🏻

Dog owners are desensitized to feces.

Oh Jesus, thanks for reminding me!
When we moved house about five years ago one of the big reasons for me was to get away from our neighbour's 5 or 6 cats that were constantly shitting in our garden. It was like their personal litter tray, bloody disgusting. They also have the habit of burying it in soft ground, waiting for you to find it as you're planting or picking your veggies. Something that dogs don't do.

I complained to the neighbour but to no avail. I went as far as speaking to Citizens Advice about it; they told me that there was nothing within the law that can be done about the issue. Outrageous.

Don't get me started on ******** cats.
 

Water hose the cats few times they will never come back, simple.

Well, maybe you're the exception then. All the dog owners I know are desensitized, and not scumbags. Their own properties are beshitted past redemption and they just don't care. I believe they develope a highly efficient sixth sense for avoiding the feces of their own animals....I remember a few days in Granada, some years ago. The old city was all roundy cobblestone, and the feces collected and impacted between the cobbles, forming a kind of substrate to the street surface. Probably centuries worth of deposits. Horrific.

You must know some weird dog owners.

 

There’s only one thing worse than picking up dog shit, and that’s not picking up dog shit.

 

If you’re not prepared to pick up dog shit every day then don’t get a dog.

In a perfect world...

 

I stand by desensitization. There are two types of desensitized dog owners.

 

1. Those who were raised from birth around dogs. These folks inherit the desensitization of their parents. Further, they associate the smell (subconscious, as they don't actually register it anymore) and the feel of squishing underfoot, with happy childhoods.

 

2. Those who aquired dogs later in life. They started out with good intentions, picking up etc, but soon tired of the ordeal and lapsed into apathy and desensitization, much like people in a warzone or an abusive relationship.

 

Then there are the scumbags, who exist, but are the minority.

How do you deal with customers that refuse or just unwillingly clean up after their dogs?

 

Have had several customers who have not bothered when asked before work commenced

 

Do yous just crack on and lift it yourselves? Or do yous charge extra for removing it yourself or extra charge for cleaning gear? etc.

 

Not the most pleasant thing to have to work with, just wondered how others have dealt with this issue

 

Thanks

 

Just curl one out on their driveway as you leave with a wallet full of notes.
