The lowdown on dog waste facts.

See why it’s important to poop scoop your home.


A soiled shoe can certainly ruin your morning, but there’s more to dog poop than being an occasional nuisance. Keep your friends and family safe by knowing all of the facts.

Fertilizer FAIL

Unlike cow manure, dog poop can’t be used as fertilizer. The reason is simple: cows are vegetarians and dogs eat meat, making their poop far too acidic to help your garden grow.

The (bad) Bacteria

One gram of dog waste can contain 23 million fecal coliform bacteria, which can contaminate our waterways and cause illnesses in humans.

The Breakdown

Believe it or not, dog waste can take a year to fully decompose, leaving your lawn brown and patchy. But regular dog poop cleaning can turn it around in just a matter weeks.

Parasite Prevention

Until they learn to wash their paws (hey, at least the cat makes an effort) regular scooping can protect you from parvo, trichinosis, whipworms, hookworms, roundworms, giardia, coccidia, and other troublemakers.

Do the Right Thing

Certain “pooper-scooper” laws require pet owners to remove dog waste on public and private property. This includes the neighbor’s yard, sidewalks, parks, schools, and — in some states — even your own backyard!
