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.

    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
    • Well there are a lot of ways to do it.   I'm going to bolt it down through the counter top, using the bolt holes for the leg levels. The idea of using straps and d rigs would look like dump and Be pretty pointless........it would be has much work having to ratchet strap the thing every time I was going to move vs setting it down on the floor. 
    • Yes it is a very good round.
    • I picked up a 6.5 creedmoor in a Kimber Montana last fall for a super lightweight 0-400 yard deer/antelope gun.  It is definitely the hot "new" cartridge in shooting circles due to the really good ballistics and low recoil.  And extreme accuracy.  I doubt the cartridge is going anywhere any time soon.  Virtually all the big manufacturers are building one now.
