    Is it your dog? Or a neighbor's? Need more info...
    If yours, then train it or keep it on a leash/tether/kennel in your yard away from your garden.
    If a neighbor's then talk to the neighbor who owns the dog, it is the neighbor who owns the dog that is being irresponsible.
    We had a similar problem with a next-door neighbor, she is a softie that allowed an couple of tenants with a dog to stay with her, the dog was allowed to come over to the edge of her yard (by our driveway) and relieve itself, of course they never cleaned it up. I took the sweet next door neighbor by the hand (literally) and showed her the hot mess, handed her a roll of doggie bags to give to the dog's owners. It improved for about 1 week, then back to bad habits. Notified the home owner about the county code which the home owner would be fined and not the animal owners. That got her attention, somewhat, it continued, this was a deal breaking point-we are well over a month at this date. I literally shoveled the piles of poop up and relocated them in their foot pathway right in front of their steps in and out. No more dog mess!
    If the dog is allowed to do this, more than likely the owner is lax on animal care and it is not up to snuff on it's immunizations, they can pick up and spread diseases by both urinating and pooping on lawns and gardens. Heartworms is 1 along with other parasites from other animals, they may not be infected with something. but they can pick it up from contact with other animal's body products which are infected. Let alone the health hazard when flies come out, they are airborne shuttles of bacteria.
    Good luck with this!

    A fence? Even a low fence will guide them away until they get the hint that it's off limits.

    We tried everything and gave up and put in a fence. They still come in the front yard.
