“Clean Up Dog Poop In The Yard” As a dog owner, we can get that command from our neighborhood association. Hopefully we will just realize the need to clean up dog poop in the yard before that happens. It’s a smelly chore that no one is anxious to do.
Here are some helpful tips to help clean up dog poop in the yard:
- Keep up with it! Do not allow the situation (and poop) to pile up. Each time after your dog goes out, clean up any mess he has left behind.
- Dog Poop Bags are often used to pick up the dog poop. I prefer the ones that are biodegradable and include a holder to clip to your belt. Some great choices are:
- Use a Poop Scooper to make the job easier and save your back. These poop scoops kind of act like a pair of tongs. There are two sides that come together when you pull up on the handle. Some have one side that has a rake type end to grab the dog poop and hold in the scoop. After picking up, you can either use the bags for disposal or bury in a hole in the yard.
- There is an auto dog pooper picker upper now on the market. I have not tried this and it seems to be mostly recommended for small to medium dogs. Might be worth a try.
Though no one wants to clean up dog poop in the yard, or anywhere else for that matter, it is part of responsible dog ownership. Fortunately we do have some helpful tools to make the job of picking up poop easier. By keeping up with it, you will have a clean, smell-free area for your dog and kids to play. And, if you have neither the time or desire to clean up the dog poop, there are businesses that do that for you. Yep, it’s now a thing!
