7. You and your pets can enjoy the yards again:

Enjoying your backyard again!  For you, your family, friends, and guests it’s time to party, run barefoot, and take pleasure in outside activities while relaxing in a clean yard.

Your dog will be a lot happier too. At last, they can run around the yard and get the exercise they need. You won’t have any more little brown tracks from them stepping in their own poop and tracking it inside.

8. Help stop polluting water systems:

Large quantities of dog waste can build up and have a very negative effect on our water systems. Yet another important reason why we need to pick up dog poop regularly and dispose of it properly.

After a rain, dog poop along with other pollutants is carried by stormwater directly into our waterways. When it is carried into the streams and drains, dog waste can ultimately end up in local water supplies, rivers, and even oceans.

Once dog waste ends up in a water supply, it adds more nitrogen to the water. Excess nitrogen in water equals reduces levels of oxygen which can ruin the healthy environment necessary for aquatic flora, animals, and fish.


9. Help for poop eating dogs and puppies:

Let’s face it. Dogs eating their poop is a problem. It’s especially a problem with young puppies. You may not see your dog eating feces most of the time, but most dogs will at some point in their life.

Why? Your dog was made to rummage for food. It’s part of its DNA. Waste may just be the next easy meal if your dog is hungry. Eating poop can turn into a lasting problem with your pup if they get started on the habit when they are a puppy.

Hiring a pooper scooper prevents this dreadful inclination from taking hold of your pooch with an always clean yard. A professional, customized service can get you just what you need for poop eating problems.


10. Help stop the spread of disease-carrying pathogens, pests, and dangerous animals:

We saved the scary part for last. Dog poop may contain dangerous pathogens like Salmonella, E. coli, Giardia, Fecal Coliform, Whipworms, Hookworms, Roundworms, Tapeworms, Parvovirus, Coronavirus, Cryptosporidium, and Campylobacter. Those are just a few of the hundreds of harmful organisms.

The majority of these organisms can easily be passed on to people and pets. These pesky organisms can cause cramps, diarrhea, and intestinal illness, in pets, children, older people, and persons with weaker immune systems.

Some pathogens like Roundworms and Hookworms can be deposited by infected animals and can survive on the ground for a long time. And as kids and pets play or even when you work in the yard, it can very easily get transferred. More important reasons the poop must be scooped!

As professional pet waste removers, we use equipment sanitation and other safety methods, after leaving every yard, to kill pathogens so not to transfer them from yard to yard.

DOO it Yourself or Hire a Pooper Scooper?

Dog waste will not magically disappear. It poses a serious threat to our environment people and pet health. Whether you scoop it yourself or have a professional do it, it needs to be done.

Hiring a professional helps you accomplish all the items covered in this blog post without really having to spend a lot of money, peace of mind, and the best thing about getting a pooper scooper is that you never again have to deal with stepping in dog poop, handling the painstakingly messy cleanups, the horrible smell or even the nasty flies that come with it.
