Diogs where they don't belong

in australia, and this might only work in australia...i don't know...it's worth a try, though. in australia (as i was saying) they fill up those 2-litre plastic pop bottles with plain old water and they place these bottles on the parking strips and the dogs will not pass these bottles to get to the other side of the sidewalk!!!!!!!!!
like i said...try it.

I don't have "parking strips", whatever they may be, and I am not near a sidewalk. But I understand you to be telling me to put out some water-filled two-liter bottles along the property line, and to expect that they will prevent the passage of dogs. Have I got it right? I do this when the moon is full, right? I don't need any holly stakes or anything like that?
How will the Candid Camera crew know when to come out and film this?
Thank you for your time.

While it may be an old wives' tale, something like this is followed in other parts of the world: in Hawaii, people sometimes put out large glass bottles of water (gallon jugs or so) around their yard to "discourage" dogs and cats from going to the bathroom there.

I have no doubt of it, there is no limit to the foolishness of ignorant people. I have seen apparently rational people swear that they are getting energy out of a crystal hanging around their neck -- not much different from expecting water bottles to influence the bladder and bowel discharges of cats and dogs.

Well, I think the "theory" is that dogs and cats are more reluctant to go to the bathroom around water. I have no idea how true this is.

That may well be true; it makes evolutionary sense for clients of the waterhole to avoid fouling it.
On the other hand, it isn't clear that dogs and other non-human mammals can perceive that a glass bottle has water inside. Or, if they could, that the column of water it contains is equivalent to a pool from which water can be lapped up.

I can't apologize for my doubt or for my bemused reaction, which seemed pretty well to match the nature of the suggestion.
I have no idea what offends you about my email address, which is a REAL and VALID address (no bullshit, if that's what you mean by "b.s."), disguised from harvesting bots, yet readable by humans. The fact that you don't do something like that may explain the mountain of spam/junk mail you find in your inbox (I get none at all). There is no particular virtue in making yourself and your ISP the target of malicious spammers and virus distributors -- especially for Outlook users like yourself.
I am not sure what "funky" can mean in this context; I'm sure I could look that up, if it seemed worthwhile.

No cameras, but they should have told you that being naked is a requirement in order to make it work.
