On the other hand I was talking to a guy in the pool shop who was telling me about his tenant. Nice fellow with a couple of kids. Kept the house pretty tidy. His 2 dogs were never ever taken for a walk and his solution to clear up the poop outside was to kick it into the pool!!!!!
Sad to say the minority of dog owners spoil it for the majority.
Incidently when we sign the lease with our tenants..the agent always put in the contract that dogs were to always be kept outdoors. Apparently this is standard practice here in oz.
