Doggy Doo Disposal

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.

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

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

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.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
