Composting Dog Poop - How To Use Pet Waste As Compost

Grosse Ile

As responsible dog owners, we all know the importance of picking up dog poop. We understand very well the implications of leaving it lying on the ground. Abandoned dog waste is a threat to our environment, our waters, our health, the health of our pets and the health of others and their pets. Most of us know the importance of using dog poop bags to accomplish our tasks as a responsible pet owner. However, please read on to understand how many of us do not perform this task correctly and most importantly, safely.

1) The first mistake we make is that our dog poop bags may have holes in them. We often use plastic grocery bags, which quite often have a tear in them. Always use two bags if using grocery bags, by inserting one inside the other. Even if we use authentic dog waste bags purchased for picking up dog poop, we often stuff these bags in our pockets when heading out the door. Quickly ripping them from our pockets when needed may weaken or cause a small unseen puncture in the wall of the bag. So stuffing the bags in our pockets is not often the best option for carrying them.

The above four errors are very common mistakes in picking up canine feces and yet are very easy to fix. By doing so, we will continue to improve our environment, our health and the health of others. In addition, you will be viewed as a responsible dog owner who is mature, knowledgeable, safety-conscious and considerate of others. Please consider a dog poop bag holder to assist you in correctly picking up dog poop.

What do we do have picking up dog poop? Do we make sure our hands are clean? Clean enough to munch on that apple? Or to take a bite out of that cookie? Or to hold our child's hand?

Chances are great that we do not even think about it. Because we didn't "touch" anything. But did we?

Do we "touch" anything when visiting the toilet? Yet we all wash our hands afterwards. It is only common sense, isn't it? Well it is certainly convenient, the water, soap and towels are right there. Or if in a public facility without water, the hand sanitizer is right there. So it is common sense to clean our hands... Just to make sure. We use soap and water or we use hand sanitizer after using the toilet.

Once we realize the many diseases spread by canine waste, we must of course cleanse our hands after handling it. We know it is the right thing to do. It makes perfect sense, doesn't it? Consider a dog poop bag holder that provides for this necessity and also offers so much more. Enjoy your walk, enjoy the great outdoors with your pet, but please do clean your hands after picking up dog poop.

As a professional pooper scooper the number one thing I hear from pet owners is, "What do you do with the poop?"

Before I answer how we do it, let's look at some of the more popular options available to dispose of the doo!

Dispose of it in the landfill

In many municipalities, there are no specific rules governing how to dispose of pet waste and thus it is included with regular household trash. Whether you reuse grocery bags, pick it up with a shovel or use biodegradable bags it can be placed in with your regular trash. In some areas of the country it is illegal to dispose of dog poop in the landfill. If in doubt, call your local municipality to find out the rules.

To answer the question... In our location, the best way to dispose of pet waste is to double bag the pet waste and take it to the local landfill. In order to lessen our effect on the environment we use biodegradable bags that are made out of recycled plastic. You should always check the laws in your local area as the rules for disposing of pet waste vary from municipality to municipality.

We hope you will check back as we continue provide pet owners and lovers with valuable information!
