Dogs. Man’s best friend. Every dog owner will provide multiple reasons for having a dog as part of the family. Companionship, therapy, protection, hunting, to name a few. The one thing all dog owners will agree upon, though, is the chore of picking up dog poop in the yard is a nasty job and quite a hassle!

Healthy Yard makes a Happy Family

There are numerous reasons for regularly removing the dog poop in your yard. Not only does it smell and keep you from enjoying your yard, but it can also create serious health problems for you, your pets, and your lawn.

Full of bacteria and disease, dog poop is truly a danger to the environment. Rain runoff containing poop particles contaminates waterways, dog poop containing worms can infect other dogs that come in contact with the feces, and dog poop can also cause people to become ill as dog poop carries human-infecting parasites.

Your lawn and plants can become ill, too, because dog waste is very acidic due to their diet consisting mainly of beef, chicken, and pork products. Dog poop is not a fertilizer as many dog owners might think. Leaving poop in the yard will kill your grass, and it is also very toxic to other landscaping plants as well.
