Dog crap and red pepper

darkeyes1955September 10, 2012

I'm moving into a new house soon and it has been empty for the past year. During that time it seems a neighborhood dog has made the property his private toilet. Don't know who the dog belongs to yet but in the mean time I have thought of maybe sprinkling red pepper in his favorite spots but not sure what the red pepper will do to the perennials planted there. Will they get burned or anything if I get the pepper on them?

The plants will not be burned by the hot pepper flakes which should discourage thedog from stopping there.

I would be almost certain the dog lives next door or very close by. Once you find out which yard the poo belongs in, (where the dog lives,) return it. Knock on the door, smile, hey new neighbor, how ya doin, whatever. And, btw, I'm returning something your dog left in my yard. Not upset, not confrontational, but letting them know you know their dog is crapping in your yard and you won't be OK with that.
