Some of the people can't control their kids, so no wonder they can't control their dogs. Here's a little tip on how to be a good neighbor. When your dog pulls you into my yard to do his thing, pull him back out - don't just let him continue on while you follow. You're supposed to be in control of the dog, not the other way around. If I wanted a dog to relieve himself in my yard I would have a) NOT put up bushes to keep dogs out, and b) gotten a dog of my own. I hope you people don't have kids!
