Poop!  Cleaning Up After Your Dog


Prior to adopting a dog, most people don't give much thought to the task of poop cleanup.  Once the dog has joined the family and the need becomes apparent, some people tend to avoid cleaning up. This can lead to problems.

 

Reasons to Pick  Up

Dog waste contaminates the ground and becomes a means of passing intestinal parasites and infections to dogs and people. Your own dog can be repeatedly reinfested by parasites in this way. 

Picking up the feces prevents a great deal of the contamination, especially if diarrhea is not involved. Cleanup can reduce veterinary expenses and might even save on human doctor bills.

Ways and  Means

Various tools are available for picking up dog waste.

Scooper tools can make the job easier. These are usually lighter in weight than a shovel and more customized for the pickup task. You can tote along a bucket or bag to save steps.

A simple plastic bag slipped over your hand like a glove makes an efficient and completely clean pickup tool. A latex  glove is also useful. A wide variety of bags will work, making this one way to recycle. Simply pick up the poop, turn the bag inside out to enclose it, tie the top, and deposit it in a legal container. This system works well on outings as well as at home.

If bending is difficult for you, a long-handled scooper tool may be your better choice. Some of these are designed to work with disposable bags. There are quite a few different tools designed for picking up poop.
