A well trained dog should never ever approach a stranger without having been told to by its owner, whether it's on a lead or not

See original post

 ... and speaking as someone who's kept dogs for most of my life,  proper training, proper training, proper training (for the owners as well as the dogs).

We get quite a few dogs walking their owners past here and most seem very well behaved.  One of the owners has offered to swap his Bassett Charlie for my car ... I am tempted .........

Unknown animal dropping (Curly) all over garden

It's a sign that the soil under your lawn is in good heart and is being aerated by the worms and they are dragging leaves down below the surface to add nutrition and improve the structure of the soil.

But as has been said, on a dry day deal with them with a stiff broom before mowing otherwise you'll get little  muddy patches
