Needs and wants are two very different things. Do we NEED that Harley Davidson? No but we sure the hell want it. Do we need an 82 inch flat screen TV?

You can easily go out and take care of it yourself or you can continue to bug your husband or kids to do it. We do NEED to clean up after our dogs. It's pretty gross what those cute little wiggle butts produce and leave behind.

- Pet waste is raw sewage. It can transmit bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens to humans and other animals, including tapeworm, roundworm, E. Coli, giardia, salmonella, and more.
- Four out of ten U.S. households have at least one dog, and four out of ten of those dog owners don’t pick up after their dogs.
- Unscooped poop in yards, parks, and sidewalks gets into our lakes, streams and rivers, even into groundwater.
- Nutrients in pet waste cause excess algae in lakes and streams. This limits the light available to aquatic plants. Also, as algae decays it uses up oxygen needed by fish.
What You Can Do
- Scoop weekly to keep your yard clean. Backyard poop is a big problem.
- Keep your dog on leash. Then stoop and scoop that poop. Every time.
- Bring baggies when you walk your dog, plus extras to share.
- Seal the bags and toss them in the trash.
- Never use pet waste in your garden or compost. It is not a natural fertilizer.
To all dog owners who keep their dogs on leash and scoop the poop, we say “thank you”! You are protecting water quality, wildlife, and the well-being of your fellow humans. Keep up the good work and give yourself a nice pat. You deserve it.
