    My thoughts as well.

    I also find it in poor taste to leave dog waste in the fields by the motel parking lots etc.

    P.S. No I don't have a law degree but seriously no one wants to live near a property, field or no field, full of dog poop.

    Completely agree as well! Dogs are allowed so few places these days and owners not picking after them is probably the biggest reason why.

The poop shouldn't even be on the agenda, and you should ask for it to be dismissed. that's going no where unless you admit to it.. i wouldn't, BTW.
    I agree with Susan, I wouldn't have forced the issue as you never know how it will play out in court. It sounds like the only issue the Animal Control guy was worried about was your dog off lead crossing a public road. I would have compromised with him and agreed to cross the road with my dog on lead, then taken it off when I was on the permitted property.

    I agree with some of the others. I would not have gone out of my way and asked for a ticket. You could be in for a big surprise one you had not bargained for IMO! Good luck to you. Let us know.

    As to the question of scooping the poop, you don't say how big the field is: regular city lot? five acres? 20 ac? I certainly don't pick up the poop on the 140 ac where I often run my dog, nor on the 10 acre pasture where we go when not on the 140 ac. There is raccoon, coyote, cow, etc. poop out there so seems silly to be picking up my dog's little contribution.

    Good luck on the (I assume) JP case. Be sure and let us know how it goes.

    The leash law in the suburb I used to live in is similar to yours, however they did a good job of defining the expectations and terms. The significant difference is that they referenced both e-collars and an AKC Canine Good Citizen certification as leash equivalents. In both cases, dogs were allowed off leash with the caveat that they be called into heel position when anyone approached within 100'. The pooper scooper section also made an exception for rural undeveloped areas. It may be worth showing this ordinance to your AC guy aid in the discussion of 'restraint'.

    Sounds like a very enlightened city council and community. Wish there were more .

    This is a situation where an anonymous caller/whiner is causing unnecessary grief. A simple sit down would alleviate most if not all of the problems. You mow the place, not the owner. If you lose access the logical assumption would be the land would be mowed sporadically if at all. Which is worse, dogs frolicking in the grass where only trespassers step in poo or an overgrown, unkept vacant lot where vermin are allowed to proliferate. Regardless of your legal standing, the outcome of shutting off your use of the property will be an even bigger thorn in the anonymous callers side.
