How to stop a dog from pooing outside my house?

This morning I was greeted with a delightful brown present outside my door when I left for work.

I’m guessing it was a dog by the looks of it. No idea whose though.

Anyone gotten any proven tips to keep them away from my house? So far I’ve cleaned and hosed the area plus bleached it. And hosed the door in case it marked its territory.
 
If it has an owner you put the poo in a bag and launch it at the owners head

Jeyes Fluid maybe worth a try 🤔

Are you sure it’s a dog and not a fox? Does your front door open directly onto the street?

🤣 if I knew the owner I’d post it though their letterbox

It does and I did wonder that but I did a quick google and - not to be TMI - it has a different consistency and shape. This one looked exactly like this emoji 💩 I could be wrong, I’ve never had a pet!
 
I had a neighbor who kept letting his dog do this, my security camera caught them several times.

I used a spade to chuck it on his crappy car that he cleans every week then it stopped. People are selfish dicks

I'm hot tempered, so usually I'd also suggest something along those lines, but not anymore.
Long story short: A woman saw another woman (early 20s) walking her dog and not picking up after it. It was a park where children would play and outside her work, so she politely asked her to pick it up. Dog lady said she already had, which was obviously a lie. Fast forward a few days, as she leaves work, there's a bag of poop on top of her car and a paper with her name on it! She panicked and as she got home, there was a letter basically saying:
Hi Kate. As you can see, I found out where you live and I know your husband Jim and daughters Anna and Sarah are with your parents. I could tell you that at night when you're all asleep, I'd break in and kill you and your husband in front of your daughters and they'd be scared for life, but I won't do it because even though I have these dark thoughts, I don't act on them.
But be careful and think twice before talking because you never know if the person you provoke is crazy or not.
[emoji33][emoji33][emoji33] Scary stuff!!!! She was obviously so shaken! So yeah, after hearing this, now I think twice and try to control my road rage. [emoji27][emoji27]

I suggest getting a security camera to identify the person. The, post the screen shots on any local forums you have if you don’t recognise them yourself.

It’s happened again in exactly the same place! I think it’s likely it’s happening at night so I thought maybe a fox but it’s bizarre bc it’s right under my motion detected lights -surely animals hate that?

Do cats go out at night?

Get one of those ring doorbells. Will film whoever it is. Even if it’s a fox as it will pick up the motion and then you’ll know at least
 
I’m pretty good at identifying poo, as I have a lot of foxes by me, and I’ve had many cats and dogs, Fox poo is very, very pungent and is usually quite small, thin and dark. A dog poo will depend on the size of the dog and its diet, whether all meat or lots of carbs. Carbs produce bigger poos. Mostly meat makes much smaller poo. Similar with a cat, but not usually very large.

A good idea, I just resent having to pay for something pooing on my property. I'm annoyed enough having to buy chilli and extra bleach. If it's a fox I wont mind as much cos it has no owner

It's weird cos I cant smell a thing. And both were very different. One was literally like the poo emoji and the todays is darker and like 2 small logs.

If it’s not there before you go to bed and there in the morning . I would think cat or fox as not many people would walk their dog that late at night I would imagine .

I think so too. Plus the spot where it's happening is like a goodmaybe 3-4 metres in from the street. So I dont think someone would bring their dog down there unless they have a vendetta!

So I took a closer look 🤢 seems like a fox bc it’s pointy with lots of hairs inside it. I’ve bleached it again, cross your fingers for me!
