Dog Poo in condos

Post by guitarnoise » Mon, 25 May 2009 5:19 pm

I just moved into a new condo and I'm surprised to see dog poo in the hallway almost everyday. I'm on the seventh floor so it's probably a neighbor's dog. I'm new in the building so maybe it's been like this for years.

Anyone have similar a experience? Where's the best place to lodge a complaint? Sure I want to track down the dogs owner and talk to the building management too. But after that? I don't want to be calling the cops if it's not in their purview.

I wouldn't recommend you confronting the neighbours yourself. Instead you might want report it to the property manager. I would take photos as evidence and also ask a security guard to have a look at it when it occurs. In Compass Heights they would take note of this kind of stuff as well and report it to the building manager.

Read about Poo trap product from the thread "finding expat dog owner" which you may consider introducing to your neighbour

If this was in UK, I would find out the owner of the dog and where they live. Then I would scoop up the Dog poo and post it through their letter box.

But I think that sort of behaviour is unacceptable in Singapore.

My friend says the govt agencies here are really reliable so he reported his neighbour to the sanitary department (not sure which ministry that is) but they came in, slotted information into all boxes of households and then hung around to speak to the dog owners....

as 50% of the time, it's not the owner but the maid who walk the dog. There's good chance the owner is not aware of what's going on.

Good point - there might not even be a dog. It could be the maid making the mud monkeys.

If you have a golden retriever or a rottweiler and all the neighbours have jack russells or other toy breeds, I'm pretty sure you could recognized your dog's poo! :o :P :lol:

I haven't seen the offending animal yet. I'm starting to think it might even be a cat. In any case, I haven't seen any fresh turds for two days.

I was thinking the quickest way to get results would be to return the poo to the owners doorstep.

But truthfully, I don't even care anymore. Perhaps the first couple of times I was put out. Now I'm starting to realize my old condo probably had better management and better neighbors.

I'm only going to live in Singapore in for a few years. If my neighbors have bought their own flats and don't object to walking around crap everyday, then let them live in the manner they choose. And wherever I go in the world, I'll always have something to say when people talk about how clean Singapore is.

Yeah - it could be from a poo-dle or a shit-zhu.
