Archived from groups: rec>pets>dogs>health (more info?)

With all the snow we have had this winter, I have really fallen behind
in mey dog poop clean up in my back yard. Now the problem is overwelming
with with wet mushy dog poop that is almost impossible to pick up. Is
there something that I can spray on my lawn that would help break up and
dissolve the dog poop? Is there any kind of folk remedy or safe enzyme
formulation that will do this?

I wonder of that ridx stuff for septic tanks would do anything. Course
I'd be careful - they like to advertise that it's all enzymes.... could
turn out that it's some sort of really nasty toxic chemical.

agree with you. There's always some smart ass who can't read the initial
post then has a stupid answer. It was a good question.

I dread the spring clean-up, so i've been going out in the snow
(before the "next" snow) and scooping. Chipping away if necessary.
As much as it's a little more challenging to do this, it's more
pleasant than the yuck that comes when the snow thaws. And - on top
of the snow - it's easy to SEE!

When I say I'm a poop flinger I'm being both literal and
metaphorical. On the literal side it gets flung into the
fields. (On the metaphorical side, I think we all know
where it gets flung.)

No place to fling it - the neighbors would probably be unhappy! ;-D

I've begun experimenting with placing it strategically
around the mini-orchard I started putting in last summer.
And so far the results are ... makes no difference
whatsoever in keeping the deer away.

All of you will get no sympathy from us urban apartment dwellers. We have
to bundle up against the cold or batten down against the rain three, four
times a day and we have to pick up all donations.

Wouldn't be easier for you to actually watch your dog when they are out in
the yard, and simply run out and quickly pick anything up that they make,
when they make it?

Or, how about going outside with your dog? Put them on the leash and make
them understand that after they poop they can be let go to play. Dogs learn
to poop quickly that way. That way you poor poor people with back yards
only have to be outside briefly, pick up the poop, and go back inside and
stay warm and not have to worry about frozen/thawing doggie poo poo.

I have four dogs. However, I really don't care - cleaning
up the yard just isn't a big deal.

I've been an urban dweller for many years. One with a postage stamped
sized yard though (now have 1/2 acre yard). In both urban and
suburban settings, go out with dogs frequently.

I scoop my yard 2x+ per day. Usually, when scooping, Franklin
provides more matter for me, which is scooped immediately. We spend a
lot of time outdoors in the summer, and poos is scooped as soon as
it's deposited. I almost always watch my dogs in the yard. These
days (with snow on the ground), I walk out and scoop right away if the
pile is close enough to the house and the precip light or
non-existent. Otherwise, I revel in the luxury of not having to scoop
until the next day or when I feel like it.

My dogs don't need to be on leash to know that. That is the routine.
play and walks come after elimination. I'm outside with them a lot.

You don't seem to understand that a yard does not a lazy owner make.

We live where snow falls in feet, not inches. We *do* go out with the dogs,
and pick up after them when we can. But things like toddlers tagging along
and the poop sinking through feet of snow makes cleaning up in the dark not
easy.

The problem is my dogs need to go at night and I have no way to
illuminate the whole yard. If you have an apartment, you can always get
a dog litter box. They sell then at Petsmart. They also make sod boxes
for apartment decks.

Here's a sure way to make a million bucks folks. Some one of us ought to
invent something (natually safe) that will melt that poop away. Spray and
Melt. A sure zillion dollar item <g>.
