    Apologies for the thread name. Jim, modify it if you feel the need. I have put this on photography as I am looking for a camera. The issue I have is that there is a dog that is being allowed ( we don't have an issue with strays in the area ) to come up our drive and wee on our door. I can understand why the dog does this because we have a collie bitch. I am annoyed by the owner. This only happens when we are both at work. I am looking for a discreet motion activated camera that I can discretely position outside to capture footage of the dog and hopefully the owner. If I can get footage of the dog i'm sure I will be able to find the owner. There are many cameras out there but I am looking to get a balance of picture quality to cost.Many thanks

    You need the loan, (from a friendly farmer), of a low voltage electric fence unit. Just law the wires beneath the door, and you wont see a return trip of your stray dog. (y)

    I dunno, a staples cross cut shredder below the door might be more effective!:)

    This really winds me up. The other day while walking our dog Mobi (staffy bulldog X) I happened upon a chap walking his mutt with an extendable lead. He stood at the end of someone else's drive and allowed his mutt to go all the way up to the drive owners car and piss up the wheel. I did suggest he ought to take more control of where his dog went. Met him again this morning, still allowing his mutt to go full length of the lead. Mutt encountered Mobi who can be a bit "boisterous" with other dogs and positively aggressive with others (which is why he is excercised on a short lead). Aggressive was on the menu this morning and Mutt got tangled in his loose lead trying to get away. I kept Mobi under control but Mutt was in danger of being run over as the owner was on the other side of the road at the time. The dog's not to blame of course its just the moronic owners at fault.

    Thanks, it looks good. Do you know if it has the capability to record to an sd card?

    Came across a German guy in Greece, he had 2lt plastic bottles filled with water one beside each wheel I asked why, he said (in sign language) to stop the dogs peeing on the wheels. Dogs aren't keen on reflections, so it may work worth a try.

    If when you have set it up you have the app on your phone ,then I believe you can record it onto your phones SD card

    Dogs scent where to put their own. May be worth using a proprietry spray from a pet shop to mask any existing scent from the door and a fair way from it.

    Problem here is dog shit on the path beyond our hedge.
    We don't need to use the path so I refuse to clean it up.
    I don't want it, so if I find out who the owner is they'll get it on their doorsteps, let it get into their carpets.
    Their dog's shit, after all.
    I have heavily dosed the path and grass beyond (also a dog toilet) with pepper and ground chili.
    If the owners won't clean up, the alternative is to deter use.

    "I always pick up"....yeah, only if they think someone us watching.

    Don't know but if you read the blurb you can access it with you smart phone so I would think you can.we used to use one called a memo cam when we were dealing with distraction burglar victims to see if we were able to record further incidents they were very good and caught thieves on camera.

    We were walking round the"Slaughters" near Bourton on the Water, by the river when an older (should know better) guy 's dog crapped on the banking, the old git pratted about a bit with a bag until we passed then kicked the shit into the river as we looked back. What a dirty dickhead!!!!!!
    Cheers, Dave(n)(n)

    We were on a canal boat a few years back. We had just picked up when an elderly gent came along with his dog and he had a small plastic shovel. He said to us' you need to get one of those'. We looked puzzled. He explained you just flick the poo into the canal. When we said that was disgusting he replied " you don't see the ducks and swans getting out when they need to poo". We still pick up

    You could spray the door with surgical spirit diluted about 1:4 with water. This should destroy all smell Andrew in turn should deter the dog from returning.
    You can also spray the area round the door, on the ground I mean, with citronella oil in water. Dogs don't like the smell, might keep him away.
    The dog is just following instinct, owner is at fault for not controlling the dog.
