Anyone who intentionally lets their dog crap or pee in someone elses yard regardless of if they intend to clean it up is an idot with no repect for other people's property.
Make little "foo-foo" hold it till you're on public property! The morons that continue to walk their dogs and let them roam and do their "business" on the lawns and mailbox posts of others are totally inconsiderate.
I don't let my own dog go in the yard why should I let a strangers?
I don't think any amount of sign writing will get through to these dim-wit pet owners, that put little "foo-foo's" bladder and desire above common sense.
