Poo Disposal

Okay, I can't stand for poop to be in the yard. SO...it must be scooped. When you scoop it, you have to put it somewhere. The poo in a plastic bag in the garbage is just too gross. We live on a ranch, so we have lots of places to dispose of poo, but then you have to put it in something and take it somewhere. gag
My question is...do any of you use the septic type disposal systems like Doggy Dooley or something similar?
Do they work well? Any other suggestions?

You could always pick it up with t.p. and take it indoors and toss it in the toilet.

I don't have one of those doggy septic systems, but they do sound intriguing. I have a small covered (flip lid) poop bucket in the back that I keep lined with a plastic bag. It goes into the garbage can on garbage pick-up day.

Kimberly,
That's a good idea to just have it's own little garbage can.I've been scooping it and tossing it by what seems like enormous scoopfuls into the garbage bag,but then it's lose and can spill out...gross!I like your idea and I think I will do that.It would be especially handy if it was sized to hold those Walmart handle bags.......hmm...
Thanks for the idea....with 2 dogs we have alot of poo!!!

We have a service in Dallas that comes to your house 2-3 times a week and picks up the poo. So they take it with them!!!!

We dont use it yet, but our friends do. They have labs so I dont blame them. That would be big poo!

HAHA

I try to flush it down the toilet whenever possible. There's a whole lot of discussion on Long Island about putting it in the trash, If it doesn't get disposed of properly it can seep into our ground water - not good. But when it accumulates under ice and snow, it gets to be a little much to flush

I try to flush whenever possible but sometimes it just builds up. Yuck. It would be interesting to hear about a doggie septic system.

I use the plastic covers from the newspaper...I stick my hand into it and pick up the poo. Sometimes I bring it in and flush it but most days I throw it in my flower bed.....great fertilizer! Vicki

Hi
Good question !! When we had our German shorthair we had lots of the stuff .
I tried the flushing thing - it was a lot to flush . We would pick it up and put in a bag and the gardener would take it away for us . Don't ask . I do not know where it went.
Right now it is a challenge as we have indoor potty and out door - The outdoor need to be scooped and put in a poop bag - I use glad scented trash bags for poop only . We also have indoor wee wee or pottie pads that need to be dosposed of as since we had the neutering surgery , We do not always do it outside .Pottie training is still a work in progress .I put the pads in scented trash bags and put it in the garbage . I figure it is the same as pampers ..
Hope fully we will get on track soon and just do it all outside.
? What do you do with your walk poop bags - that is also a sensitive question . I hate putting them in the local trash cans as I do not think people like to smell it . It is not fun taking it home in your car.
One training book said make sure they poop before you leave . I am not so lucky to have totally poop on command as yet ..
Melissa we are just getting the poop disposal people here . Most people where I live love their big dogs. They outnumber the little ones by far ..

We have "the poop people" here, but it is costly to do it. And putting itin the flower beds is not an option, because they dig it up and eat it. Maybe the septic tank type would work better? Have to look into it.
