they should require poop pick up by owners. it wouldn't cost much for the marina to supply bags but then again in this economy i guess not ..

our marina has bags at every gate and folks are very good about using them. There is a basic leash law that is not very enforced, but we and the other dog owners are all good about keeping their dogs in their areas and from bothering other folks.

It really isn't a dog problem... it's a people problem... Himself had to learn to *scoop* and is learning to not throw his butts on the ground as well... It's a training thang. I won't tolerate dog poop or cigarette butts.

"There is no cigarette butt fairy to follow you around and pick your butts up, so DON'T throw 'em!"

and not cleaning up after your dog is so double wide...

Wait...you can hit drunks with anchors?

As far as cigarettes go, I have on more than one occasion narrowly avoided getting into a fight because I cant help yelling "Is your mother gonna come by later to pick that up? when I see these fools littering.

Ive got to side with Faith on this one,i work at a marina that actually has a no dog policy which tends to be ignored,all the dogs seem to be well behaved which is more than i can say about many of the brats, id rather see a no child policy, i dont know where the dogs crap as due to the policy there is no designated area but i never see any around so the owners must be picking it up.I sure dont care much for the stench of disposable diapers when i walk past the dumpsters though.I think it may be better to not have a designated area,kind of spread the urine around instead of concentrating it in one area.

Chris; one of my most favorite memories is of picking up a butt in a parking lot that had been thrown out a van window and walkin to the door of the van with a helpful smile on my face and an expectant look. When she rolled down her window I offered her back her butt and in my most sincere voice said "Oh excuse me, you dropped this".

She just sort of stuttered "thank you" and took it with this baffled look.

that was sweet.

That was AWESOME! Did you ever see the commercial on TV where the guy takes all the crap thrown out of some A-Holes car window and builds a little tree with it, then presents it to him?

I work in the city all day, and I CONSTANTLY see garbage being thrown out of car windows...but I have to pick and choose who to yell at because I like life...

Those really long leashes with small dogs remind me of fishermen with live bait on the ends of their lines. I wonder if sea lions see the same thing?

yes I agree I2F.

as to all the comments about dogs, cats, children, old people, drunks, jet skis, loud music playing etc., I've probably owned, been or participated in each one of those at some point in my life, so now I just grit my teeth and endure those animals, play things, or folks when I run into them.

The children irritate me the most because it's against the law to spank other people's children when they act badly...my hand itches and I can't act. arrrrr.

now days, the little varmints are sent to their rooms when they act badly - they're just like George Carlin - that's where their toys are - they could care less -what they need is an intense foul switching of a belt on their heinies - a taser lashing or!...oh I'm sorry - let me go take my memory pills. later.

I DO fully reserve my right to place my future grandchildren in another category, but heartily agree with your post.

LOL! I love that one! Would have loved to been there to see that!

Our marina has plastic bags by every gate and a sign that states quite clearly a $175 fine for not picking up after your pet. The people at the marina are very good about picking up. The people who are visiting are not always so considerate.

The dogs are NOT the problem.
LOL When I read the title of this thread I thought immediately of this, Dog are not the issue, owners are the issue.

Me personally, I would rather stay in a Marina with a well behaved pet in every boat than one with wild unruly children or loud drunks.

Don't get me wrong, I love kids, but not "out of control" kids with absentee parents (who are likely the loud drunks).

This issue is about responsability I think, not dog crap.
