The low down on dog doo
Pick it up! Three reasons to pick up your dog’s poop
Wondering if it’s really necessary to pick up after your pup? Did you take a new morning route and now you’re running late for work? Maybe you only brought one poop bag and your dog decided to make it a double. Whatever the case may be, there has been at least one point in every dog owner’s life when one questions the importance of picking up after their pup. So why is picking up dog poop so important?
We’ve all been there. Everyone piles into the car after a lovely afternoon at the park and that pungent odor hangs in the air, no matter how long you drive with the windows down. A thorough search determines that at least one passenger stepped in dog poop and they have now transferred it to the car and wherever else they stepped before realizing it.
Most dogs keep a diet of primarily animal-based nutrients, which leaves behind a not-so-nice odor after it’s been digested. As soon as your pet is out of your yard, they’re in a space that’s shared with anyone. It’s your responsibility as a dog owner to exercise common courtesy and pick up whatever tidbits your dog leaves behind.
It’s bad for grass and other plants
You know the myth: poop is natural fertilizer. The problem with this myth is that it does not apply to all animals. Chicken and cow poop is a great natural fertilizer that has been used by farmers for centuries. As mentioned before, dogs keep a very different diet than humans and herbivorous animals like chickens and cows. Dog waste is actually too high in nitrogen and phosphorous to the point that it can actually kill off parts of your lawn as well as some flowers and plants.
The rain won’t wash it away
Dog poop contains more bacteria and parasites than other types of waste. These bacteria and parasites can be harmful to humans, especially children, and they can also spread diseases to other dogs. So even if the poop is no longer visible, those nasty bacteria and parasites can stick around in that soil for longer than a year!
