Australian families love their dogs, no question about it. According to recent statistics Australia has one of the highest rates of pet ownership in the world with 39% of households owning a dog. We love our four legged buddies for numerous reasons including companionship, exercise, security, but the one thing we don’t love is cleaning up after them.

Dog Poop Removal is not Fun

Granted, picking up dog poop is not fun. But not removing it can be very dangerous both to our families and our fur buddies. Follow this link to discover the shocking truth about not picking up your dog’s poop. Having stinky landmines all over your yard is unsightly and extremely unpleasant for whomever may accidentally step in some, but is also a potential health hazard. Dog faeces can contain bacteria and viruses such as Campylobacteria, Salmonella, E.Coli and Giardia to name a few, all of which can have serious health impacts on your family and/or the environment. These can be picked up and carried into your home on your children’s hands or feet or dog’s paws and, if left too long, will leach through the soil and into the ground water and eventually to our drinking water. We have a moral responsibility to ensure we clean up after our pooch. But many of us are time poor or just physically (or mentally) not capable of picking up.

All our four legged friends are such lovely souls and it’s such a delight to see them each and every week. We’re there to dispose of the dog poop but we always make sure we spend time with our four-legged clients.

 

They get more and more comfortable with us and crack us up with their different quirks.  This week I wanted to tell you about two very lovely dogs call Zander and Kingston.

 

Zander is an Australian Kelpie and as soon as I arrive to pick up the dog poo, he brings me a toy to kick across the garden. It’s a different toy every single week it’s so funny to watch. He brings the toy over….but not too close…..then he gets really close to the ground waiting for the moment I kick it.  I try and trick him by kicking it in a different direction, but he’s too clever, he knows exactly where its going. That’s kelpie dogs for you!

 

Kingston, the staffy (or Staffordshire Terrier for the full name), lives with Zander but while all this fun is going on, he just watches with his tail wagging.

 

One of my favourite habits is Zander’s escort service. But it’s not what you think! When I arrive he always greets me at the gate. He walks me in, wants a big pat, and lies down while I get on with the poop scooping. When it’s time to go, he trots up and walks me back to the gate. Such a polite dog.

 

And while I say “always”, if it’s raining, forget it!

 

Leave a comment or tell me about your favourite dog breed, and what they do to make you laugh.

 We at The Poop Scoop wanted to dispose of our dog poop in an environmentally friendly way but I really didn’t know how or where. I called my local Perth council to find out where the poop from the dog parks ended up, and I was horrified to find out it just went into landfill!

 
Considering that dog poo provides the perfect breeding ground for flies and fleas and all sorts of other nasties I hated the idea of it just sitting in landfill. I scoured the web and phone every local green agency I could find and no one had an environmentally friendly solution to dog poo disposal. Not even the sewerage treatment plant!
 

We found one eco-solution with The Earthwise Centre in Subiaco, Perth, and together we created a dog poo worm farm. A worm farm is one of the safest ways to break down dog poo so it can be reused on a garden (whereas a compost bin doesn’t break the dog poo down enough to make it safe). While this is a great start, we’d love to find something on a bigger scale. This would mean that other doggie businesses, like The Shenton Park Dog Refuge, can safely and greenly dispose of their dog poo without filling landfill.
 

So here is a challenge for our fellow dog lovers. Please tell us your ideas and suggestions about dog poop disposal. As a country of pet owners we have to find a way to help reduce landfill and the impact on our environment.
 

Do you know of a green means of dog poo disposal that can handle of lot of disposin’? You can comment here or on our Facebook page  — we’d love to hear your ideas!

This is the start of something fun and we’re glad you’re here! We’re the Poop Scoopers and The Poop Scoop Unleashed is a blog especially for dog owners, and dog lovers. We’ll be romping around untethered and wild sharing the stories and wisdom from our adventures.

 

And we know what you’re thinking…. helping dog owners reclaim their backyard by removing all dog poop might not sound like a glamorous blog subject. But we have so many funny moments with our doggie customers, that we thought it was about time we shared them.

 

We’ll also be sharing some excellent tips for pet care, dog grooming, dog health and doggie events all around Perth.

 

If you have a tip or an event or just a funny story about your dog, let us know with a comment!

 

So what is the Poop Scoop Service all about? Well you can read about that on this other page  but basically, we’re the super nice friends of
 dogs and dog owners  all around Perth. That’s Perth Australia, not Perth in Scotland where I’m sure we’d still love the dogs, but not the weather so much.

 

Every week, we’ll be here with some must have knowledge, some nice to have tips and some dog related funnies to lift your day. See you next week!

Missing Boxer

Last week I went to see the Boxers, Rocco and Junior (as I do every week).

I was greeted by Rocco and he was thrilled to see me, wagging his tail and wanting me to try and get his toy off him.

I couldn’t see Junior, so I thought he must be at the Vets.  I continued on with the job in hand.

When I had finished the job, I saw that there was only one dog food bowl and only ONE bed!  OMG!

I thought to myself, poor Junior has passed away!  So I said goodbye to Rocco, got in the van and I had tears streaming down my face.  I finally pulled myself together before I got to Hugo and Phillipe’s house.

When I arrived home, I thought I would send an email to the Fur Parents and asked what had happened.  When I checked  my emails, there was an email waiting for me…………”sorry, forgot to let you know that Junior is at my Parents house as Rocco is recovering from an Operation”!!!!!  Phew…….

Goodness me!  Next time I will not come to the worst conclusion first.

Hope your pets are keeping warm.

Regards,

The Poop Scoop Team
