How do I teach my dog not to poop on people’s lawns? I feel like it is difficult to teach that when I pull her away from the lawn mid poop (yes, I pick it up).

Answer: To curb your dog’s habit, use a waste bag and walk around the artificial turf. Poop on the lawn = punishment. Poop in the waste bag = reward. If you feel like it is difficult to find poop after your dog has peed/defecated, tie a string to the middle of their leash and attach it to one end of an empty plastic gallon jug balanced on its side; if they motion towards potty-time, they’ll suddenly experience weight-driven resistance from spilling water over their paws/fursuit (make sure that there’s enough slack for them to go through with them).
