    What do you guys do (if anything) if an owner has an excess amount of dog crap in his/her yard? Its all over the tires, my shoes, fricking everything. Got 2 properties where the owners have 4 dogs, big s.o.b.'s.

    In my bid I state a $10 clean up fee for dog crap. All of my customers clean up there yards before cutting day. Guess they don't want to pay the 10 bucks!!

    That $10, is that to clean up the **** on you and your equipment or to clean it from the yard (or $20 in daveintoledo's case)? I have this problem a lot, thanks!

    to clean up my equipment, i dont scoop poop

    after the first couple of times they get it and clean it up, there may be a little but you can tell if they havent tried o pick it up at all,

    if there is one pile in the yard then it is new or they just missed it and no charge, but lots of crap and that showes me they didnt attempt to clean it up

    if it's in excess and it looks like no effort was made on their part, i'll say clean it up and keep it clean or get someone else.

    That fee should be $10.00 PER DOG!

    I'll give it a try but I'm not sure their gonna go for it. The time it sent me over the edge was the time one of my workers lifted the 21 into the back of the truck and got dogsh*t all over his shirt from a tire.
