Not that OP is really gonna go get some but I doubt it would work. We have
occasional mountain lions where I live and my dogs go and pee can poop right
on their droppings (easily recognizable by the size and the footprints next
to them) to "reclaim" their territory.
OP didn't say why he won't talk to the dog owner but my experience was that
even the lowliest, deranged, degenerate gang-member type will try to keep
his dogs out of your yard. I had gang-members move in next door and their
dogs (pit bulls) ate through the fence and hung out (and crapped) in my back
yard. They immediately went about reinforcing the fence etc even though
they continuned to play loud boom-boom music and sell drugs in front of my
I posted previously what I did to keep cats from crapping on my front lawn
but I don't know where the post went.
I bought a motion detector light for about $10 and ran wires from one of the
light sockets to a relay which activated my automatic sprinklers when it
detected anything moving on my lawn. I had it set to stay on for 5 minutes.
No more cat poop.
Most everyone in the neighborhood has a fenced in yard. So, that
means any stray gods or more likely the god next door find our yard a
convenient place to do his business from time to time. I've thought
of putting up a fence or even talking to the neighbor about his god.
Neither idea appeals to me.
Outside of doing any thing drastic, like shooting the god, anyone have
any ideas how to keep the god(s) out without putting up a barrier.

It is very simple to me Charlie. Let me explain it to you.
You are perceived as being weak, without balls, and without spine.
Therefore, bullies will pick on you. Defamation is defined as "an
intentional false communication, either published or publicly spoken,
that injures another's reputation or good name" and it is illegal.
However, you are not protected by those defamation laws because you
"are weak, without balls, and without spine" utterly lacking the
constitution necessary to invoke those laws. You "can't even talk to
In short, you give Henslee and his type the power through inaction.
Take my advice and prove me wrong,
