Ask HPD: Dog Waste on Public or Private Property


Question: Is it against the law for your neighbor to leave their dog's waste on public or private property?

Answer: Pet owners should be responsible and pick up any solid waste that their animals leave behind. Failure to pick up waste in any public place or on any private premises is against the law. Like any other violation, there can be a fine or other penalties given out by a district court judge.
