Frequently Asked Questions Here are some FAQs

From the services that we provide to our pet's own waste.
Is dog waste a good fertilizer?

Dog waste does not make for good fertilizer. It is a commonly held misconception that stems from the use of cow or horse manure for fertilizer. Leaving behind dog waste or having it concentrated in one specific area of the yard can cause serious harm to soil quality. This is why we need to pick up after our dogs.

Can dog poop be composted?

Yes, dog poop can be composted. However, your compost heap must exceed 165 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately five days to safely sterilize the manure. Most backyard systems rarely reach this temperature. Even then, it would still be inadvisable to use dog waste as fertilizer because of bacteria and parasites that can cause disease to humans.

It is also important to understand that dog waste typically piles up much faster than it decomposes. This accumulation creates a ripe breeding ground for disease and infection. We strongly suggest that this should be avoided. The best action we can take is to pick up and dispose of the dog poop in accordance with local laws and regulations.

Is it safe to throw pet waste in the woods behind my house?

No, please do not dispose of your dog’s waste in the woods outback. Bacteria and parasites could easily travel back into your yard through water runoff and through the air.  Your pet’s waste can also attract rodents, flies, and other animals. Which in turn can carry disease and ticks to your property.

What could regular pick up prevent?

Doing regular pickups can protect you and your pooch from parvo, trichinosis, whipworms, hookworms, roundworms, giardia, coccidia, and other troublesome parasites.
