Posts Categorised: Dog Poop & Disposal

 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,

We visit a lot of dogs around Perth, scooping their poop and taking it away to leaving a trail of clean backyards, happy dogs and happy owners.

It’s very satisfying but I know you’re wondering how there are any perks to the job.

Well, it’s the dogs we visit  that make it a really fun job. They’re all so gorgeous!

If you are a dog owner you know how different each dog can be. And every dog we visit has it’s own personality.

One of the guys we visit is Zeus. He’s a Rottweiler and such a funny guy. Zeus is HUGE and weighs in at around 55 kilos so he’s not a dog to mess with.

But when we arrive, he cracks us up because he behaves differently depending on whether his Shitzu mate is there or not.

If Zeus is on his own, he is very aloof. He may not even greet me at the gate and will just sun himself by the pool. He’s a total cool-cat (if you’ll excuse the reference). That’s ok though, because it means I’ve got time to get around the yard and remove all the dog poo and when I am done, he’ll reluctantly give me cuddle.

If his Shitzu friend, Cougar, is with him well… Zeus will bark and madly wag his tail (almost bending himself in half) and can’t wait for a cuddle. What a show off!! And if I try to pat Cougar, Zeus will push him out the way.

After we’ve said hello they let me pick up all the poop, but I can be sure that when I turn around; there they are, sitting together watching me. Making sure every thing is being cleaned up properly.

Zeus and Cougar, two very funny guys… You see, there are perks to the job!!

Until next time, Love Your Pooch and Your Garden.

Did you know that dog poop is a huge breeding ground for flies and fleas? What an opener, I know!!

But with summer making it’s presence known, a lot of Poop Scoop customers are getting their property cleared twice a week. This means you don’t have eggs being laid in the dog poop lying around And the garden stays a lot clearer when you’re out there most.

One of our twice-a-week-ers is Marvy, a 1 year old Great Dane and Kuma who is a Grand Ole Rotti Lady.

When I arrive at the house, Kuma will bark a couple of times and then wander off because she can’t be bothered (too old for all that rubbish!!).
Marvy on the other hand, being a young (enormous) whippersnapper, is so delighted and so excited for a big hug that I usually have to push him out of the way so I can get inside!

While I get on with picking up the dog poop, Kuma gets on with a doggie nap but Marvy will follow me around every step of the way (clearly hinting that it would be much better if I gave him more hugs instead of picking up stinky poo!).

Then when the garden is clear, I’ve filled up their bucket of water and it’s time for me to leave, Marvy always rushes to the gate and gives me a look that says “doooon’t leeeeeaaavve meeeeee”. He kills me when he does that, so I try not to look at him in the eye!

Enjoy this gorgeous summer sun!

PS Don’t forget to keep your garden clear as the weather starts warming up. You’ll notice less flies and fleas not to mention a garden you can enjoy!
