It’s essential to clean up dog poop. The average dog produces roughly 274 pounds of poo a year. With 78 million dogs in the U.S., that means dogs produce approximately 21 billion pounds of poo each year.
Be sure always to carry bags so you can clean up after your dog. Or you can use a tool like the PooBagger, to make cleaning up after your dog easy and painless.
If you don’t regularly pick up after your dog, you risk attracting flies and pests, creating unpleasant odors and damaging your yard. You also could inadvertently risk encouraging your dog to eat it.
Keep your dog busy and feed him enough to discourage the dog from eating poo. You also can add products or natural ingredients to make the poop less appealing. Consider adding canned pumpkin, spinach, or pineapple. There also are commercial products that discourage dog poop eating like NaturVet, GNC Pets, or Four Paws.
