Doggy Doo Disposal

9 posts in this topic

We're looking for some better ideas for getting rid of our dog's waste. Currently, we've just been scooping it into our big garbage can, but the smell is unbearble. Bagging each dump seems a bit wasteful when we're talking about 4-5 dumps a day.

I'm sure there are some great ideas out there. Let's here them!

I put one of those plastic bags you get when you buy grocries in a small metal can with a lid on it , use the scooper , drop it in. I store this out side. Wed. morning it goes in the garbage can,( pick-up is wed.)

That's an easy one. Teach your dog to go in the neighbors yard. Just kidding!!! I just got a new puppy three months ago with the promise from my children picking up the mess each day. Let's just say that worked for a week. I use a five gallon bucket with a plastic liner in it and every garbage day it is tossed. Keep the cover on it!!! Just a few of the wonderful responcibilities of a pet owner.

Bought one of the small metal cans with lid from FF. Use the black bags and change it every week when garbage comes. Not to bad. When it gets real hot out, it can be a little ripe the last day or two, but as long as the lid it on you don't notice it.

I did the bag in a bucket thing for one week and got tired of the smell too. Now I toss it in the woods behind our yard and told the kids to keep out of that area.

How often are you picking up the feces? If you're going ever 2 or 3 days, I'd just bag it, tie up the opening and toss it in the trash.

I put in a Doggie Dooley and it works great. It doesn't work in the winter but then your dog waste freezes and you don't have the smell anyway. In the winter I will just scoop and bag it and in the trash. In the summer, it goes in the Doggie Dooley. Here is a link:

This is a picture of it. It goes in the ground and it takes a little work but I've used mine all summer and have no complaints. Dog [PoorWordUsage] is always a pain and this seems to handle the problem during the warm summer months.

feed your dog really good food and you will lower the [PoorWordUsage] rate. My lab is down to twice a day

WE pick it up immediately. Great Dane [PoorWordUsage] is big and easy to step into.

I do feed really good food. I'd hate to imagine how much he'd [PoorWordUsage] if not. 8+ cups of food a day has to go somewhere, though.

    • Eaves would have been nice, better to the ducks than someone else. They beat us last go around but we were way better and Gibson won the game by himself.
    • Wow...Ducks get Eaves from Dallas for a conditional 2nd round pick...pretty cheap rental IMO..where were the Wild on this deal...oh ya we don't have a 2nd round pick 
    • Update:     Put some fresh gas in, sprayed the carb valve with some cleaner and cleaned the filter.  Also adjusted the idle speed up a bit. Runs great again!   Thanks for the advice and help everyone! 
    •   Nope...I think that is an original Bear55 Quote but Yogi Berra would be jealous if he were still alive.   Agree on the Blackhawks...when the season ends they will probably be the favorite to win the cup IMO so it will take an upset by any team to knock them off...would love for the Wild to be the ones to do so....it is getting very interesting as the trade deadline and playoffs time approach!
    • Out here (Virginia) our lakes are dirty and warm, and from what I understand, saugeyes thrive in those conditions. Our walleyes are all stocked since very few of our lakes have suitable spawning habitat and there is little to no natural reproduction.   Really looking forward to catching a saugeye just so I can cross it off my list!

    • Funny, that is the same face I get when I think of people voting for a reality tv star in as president. Worse yet he is some kind of billionaire, like the general public should ever trust one of those guys in public office.
    • More like Yogi the Bear but if I stole his quote my apologies.  Have to get that Chicago gorilla off our back, don't care if they win 4 of the next 5 cups, we just need one and I will be a happy camper.

      I'm not liking that they found some decent youth to play with Towes, we need to pounce before they fill in their gaps with depth and scoring again.
    • I am up to 27 in ND so far.  Waiting for more snow to melt.  Cold weather and deep snow makes the deer really group up out here and makes for easy shed hunting, but is really tough on the deer.  The 4th pic is one from some round bales that the deer were destroying earlier this year.   The biggest I find year to year is generally around that mid 60" range.  And I found that one (first pic) in early Janruary.  So hopes of finding a bigger one this year is low haha.
    • The only Merc I saw in Belize was on a parted out boat 75ft from water. Otherwise it was 70% Yammy's, 15% Honda's, 10% Suzzy's and a 5% hodgepodge of Evinrudes, Tohatsu, ect.......
