Are some people just retarded or something? I pick up after my dog if she shits, but what the fuck did she expect me to do? Hose down the urine so it seeps deeper into the ground?
Diluting it does actually help, yes. Dog urine can wreck a lawn because it contains far too much nitrogen and it kills that spot of grass to have undiluted dog piss dumped all over it. However, if you pour water over it, the nitrogen is diluted and washed into the soil, which not only prevents damage but actually helps fertilize the ground once it's not so concentrated. Or you could just keep your dog off other people's property.
Start with controlling your fucking animals, maybe? You shouldn't be letting a dog you can't control off your property. Yes, I'm sure she was being a total bitch, but you shouldn't have let the dog piss in somebody's yard, or really go into it at all. It's just not your property and you have no right to be letting your dog on it to begin with; this shouldn't be hard to understand.
Well, at least one of us isn't American, and I'm not sure what made you certain I was except for the fact that shouting "MURICA!" is a quick and lazy way to suggest that whoever's posting is wrong about whatever they're talking about because they're apparently from America, however strongly related that might be to the topic even if it was true (just fyi, lots of countries have dogs and grass!)
i do not let my dog onto other peoples' lawns while we're walking. it's a courtesy thing. once we get to the park i let him have plenty of leash and he gets to piss wherever he wants.
i don't like it when people let their dogs onto my yard. i think it shows a disregard for my property, and letting my dog onto someone else's yard would be a disregard for their property. so, yeah, nah
Lady over reacted, but dude...just keep your fucking dog on the other side of you when your on the sidewalk. It ain't that hard. Also teach the dog that walking on the sidewalk is a job, and that he'll have time to run and play when you get to the park or wherever it is you're going.

It's not your property. What don't you understand about that? Whether it was one foot or one hundred feet, you shouldn't be letting your dog go on, and especially not fucking piss or shit, in other people's yards. You don't pay to maintain that land, you don't water those plants, and you don't own that property.
You're already that close to traffic yourself, and if you can't control you're dog enough to not be in the street, then you need to be working on training before you take that dog out in public.
