The term "Curb Your Dog" basically has two meanings. One meaning is to keep your dog under control and out of trouble ... ie; keep your dog leashed and/or confine to your property as to keep them from causing trouble for others. It also means to pick up your dog's poo when they are out of your property ... EX: while on walks and/or at the local park you should carry plastic bags and watch for when and where your dog takes a crap and clean it up! No one likes to step in and/or smell dog poo!
While out walking her dogs, Jen saw a sign that read "Please Curb Your Dog". She then remembered that she forgot the poo bags and went back home to get them.
We have been having problems with the neighbor's dog getting in our yard and digging and/or pooing the yard. So we got one of those "Curb Your Dog" signs.
"Curb Your Dog" signs are often found in cities and in suburban areas where people live. These signs are gentle reminders to dog walkers to have their dogs do their natural excretory business ( ie #1/ urine and #2/bowl movements of all textures) at the curb- the physical interface between the sidewalk and street such that remnants of the dog's activities do not impact pedestrians. Although there seems to be some confusion online about the technical and legal meaning of this idea, as with most things, the simple, literal one makes most sense and is most likely to create the most good will. The best way for a dog owner to minimize negative impacts on the general community is to bring their dog to the curb, or better yet the street, so that fewer pedestrians will have to negotiate the urine puddles and and excrement smears. Even dog excrement that has been attempted to be removed by diligent owners (which is appreciated), it is often not completely removed (granted it'd take a scrubbing), and thus contributes to unnecessary yukiness on many sidewalks. Especially since curbing a dog is such a practical way towards minimizing this urban concern, curbing dogs to the curb is a win win approach. Dog lovers and dog owners love good neighbors.
Please Curb Your Dog
A campaign started a few years back by a rogue organization that is currently viewed as PETA's worst enemy. The organization is known for placing 'PLEASE CURB YOUR DOG' signs all over the world, urging people to smash their dogs into the curbstone at the side of the road.
Apparently, the people in this organization are very bitter about the vast amount of dogshit covering the lands, and their solution is to eliminate dogs entirely.
Jimmy's dog was taking a dump right at the entrance to the park. He saw the sign on the fence: PLEASE CURB YOUR DOG.
Jimmy got the message. He was sick of all of his dog's crap. He picked Fido up by his tail and once and for all broke his bark on the corner of the cold concrete curb.
