    I hate stepping in dog ****! I have one customer that will not pick up after the dog. After this lawn is done, I smell like ****, mower smells, trailer smells, inside of truck, etc.. I need some ideas on how to let this customer know I am fed up without a face to face, What would you do?:angry:

    Ask to use her bathroom when you are done the lawn and track it in the house. Then on your way out say "Oops, sorry, the dog doo usually comes off in my truck, trailer and house"

    Great Idea Scott, This week I went around the piles of doo and left a 1 foot ring of unmowed grass. It doesn't look the best, but my shoes don't stink.

    Let the dog logs FLY!! After you are done hose everything off in THEIR yard, right back were you found it.

    We call them land mines. One of my costumers has great danes and you could spin a tire in on of those piles. I guess it just comes with the job.
