How would you handle this? More on dog poop!

Now we've all seen posts relating to dog poop on our customers lawns and how we handle it. I've only got 1 guy who doesn't clean up after his dog and I can live with that. My question is about a few of my neighbors. Seems 2 or 3 who walk their dogs past my house think it's OK for them to do their business in front of my house. I always walk my own dog and I don't allow her to go in my yard let alone at the street in front of my house. She gets walked down the street where there are no houses and she 'goes' in the woods off the road where nobody will step in it. My thoughts are put a sign up saying:
1.Not the neighborhood doggie bathroom

2.Please leave your name and address so
I may walk my dog in front of your house

or

3.No dog shi_ing/pissing from here to corner

I know this is "off topic" but I've also had neighbors of my customers who's dog's have messed up their yards and I'd like to get the opinions of others. Thanks
PS: I'd like to start out by not offending my neighbors. If that doens't work, then.......whatever goes

Rig up a sensor that will set off the sprinklers when something comes in your yard! (LOL) all jokes aside, I think I would put up a real nice sign that will remind people to atleast pick up the dog poop after they have done their business!

Yeah, I'd start off nice. Something like, "No dogs in yard" or something to the point. If that doesn't work, line the perimeter or your yard in something that dogs don't like such as red-pepper (although that could get expensive and still might not work). But if it comes down to it, RESORT TO BOOBY-TRAPS!

Their is a house in my parents neighborhood that has this sign with a picture of a dog squatting with a slash through it and what looks to be a bag holder underneath it. Maybe that would help I do not know, it does say something on it never really stopped and looked though.

Sprinkle black pepper around the edge of your lawn. You can buy that stuff in bulk for cheap. Probably have to re-apply after mowing, I'm not sure.

Do what the guy did in the Movie, Me my self and Irene.
The neighbor's dog took a dump in his yard, so the guy went across and took a dump in the guys yard himself.

Thats what I'm going to do from now on.

Yeah, I've seen the 'dog pooping sign' and I might just do that. I might have not been clear about where they poop. It's along the road, on the shoulder, not really on the lawn, but whenever I walk my dog past the house the HER spot down the street, she get's a wiff and wants to go there. I also thought about rigging up the 220V in the garage to cables running on the ground under the snow, but I don't want to kill any dog or it's owner. I'll let ya know how it works out.
