Is the deposit in more or less the same place every day? Dogs like to
return and mark a place scent wise with feces as well as urine. Cleaning
up the area and dosing it with one of those enzyme cleaners that
denature odors may work if it is the same spot each time.
here is a link to one: I have not tried it however
actually if the owner is with the dog, follow him/her home and then come
back with the deposit in a plastic bag and leave it on the front step with
a note asking for the owner to clean up after the pet.
Are you in an area with stray dogs or wild enough to have foxes?
If the poo is firm you can get a rough idea of the size of the dog by the
volumn and the diameter. Healthy dogs normally only poo twice to 3 times
There are people who have tracking dogs as a hobby (search and rescue) and
most dog owners who are serious hobbyists do not like people who leave dog
poo on other people's yards. So you might be able to find a person with a
tracking dog to track the poo-er to its home.
I can see if I can find a tracking club near you.
