Dog Doodoo Dos and Don’ts
You know you need to pick up after your dog when he goes to the bathroom. But how should you dispose of your dog’s poop? Here’s the scoop on what to do – and what not to do – with dog poop.
- Don’t leave your dog’s poop lying on the ground in the park or on your lawn. Pet waste doesn’t make a good fertilizer and can burn grass. Also, it can get flushed into a storm drain during rainstorms and contaminate waterways.
- Make sure it’s not illegal to flush dog poop down your toilet where you live before you dispose of it this way. Check with your local authorities just to be certain.
- Always use specially-designed bags to pick up and dispose of doggie waste. Dog poop contains many bacteria that may not only harm dogs, but may also pose a risk to us humans – so you want to avoid contact with it. The doggie waste pick-bags from Bags on Board are sturdy, leak-proof and extra long. They make it easy for you to safely scoop up your dog’s poop and keep it securely contained until you can put it in your outside garbage container.
