How can I gracefully address this dog walker's inconsiderate behavior?

I live in an established residential neighborhood of single family homes. For several weeks, a new dog walker has been walking one large dog and two smalls down my street every morning. My house faces a cul-de-sac and as she walks past the privacy fence of the backyard of the corner house the same little dog always has a complete meltdown. The audio is that of a one sided dog fight. He is barking at and showing really aggressive behavior to a small dog that lives in that backyard. I'm sure from this dog's perspective this is a fight for his life every morning, and the walker appears completely oblivious to it - the other two dogs walk mostly loose leash the offender is bounding around at the end of his. This regularly wakens me, it is mostly around 6:30 AM when she walks past. If the woman saw this to be problem behavior it seems the logical solution is simply walking these dogs on the opposite side of the street where there are also sidewalks but no backyards to walk past. Bonus, I happened to be awake today, Saturday, at 6:30 when the crew came walking by and along with the usual harried dog fight noise, she let the big dog take a huge dump in that same neighbor's yard and then she walked away and left the turd. How can I gracefully address this woman's inconsiderate behavior?
