    Does any one have some verbiage that I can put in my bills about Dog ****
    I'm sick off stepping in it, riding in it and smelling it.
    I do not want to threaten to charge them i just want them to clean it up.
    Thanks for anything.

    I just wash it off the equipment w/ their own hose when I'm done. They get the picture when there is a pile of it by their hose after the bath.

    What did you do as a kid. Stay on the side walks all your life. Get over it or get off it.

    Never caught the cows pie, but I've hit many horse remains. One of my past customers had horses & the electric fence kept shorting out & they would go all over his lawn. It looked like confetti had struck again.

    Pet owners, please clean-up after you pets the night before or morning of your scheduled day. We are not responsible for damages to hoses or childrens toys left in the lawn.

    I read on here where LCO's complain about dog crap. Some charge extra, others just b!tch about it. I have customers with dogs and they are in fenced in back yards. Some of them clean up the poop, some don't. I've never said anything to any of them because it ain't that big a deal. I very rarely step in it, and I don't watch where I'm stepping. If it gets on my mower tires I smell it in the trailer. But this is not often. And it comes off on the next yard. I guess I'm just wondering whose got yards with enough crap in them to b!tch about it? Must be small lots or alot of big dogs.

    Turfdud gave a good suggestion if it bothers you that much.

    all my customers on contracts and i have on it that if they have a dog all the dropping must be picked-up a day before i mow or there will be an extra $5 Equipment clean-up fee added to each weeks bill......but since they have all signed it they know to clean it up and they won't have to worry about the extra charge....:)
