Tips To Tackle Poop Scooping

Scooping poop will never be a fun job, but it must be done. We’ve written tips to help you make cleaning the yard less stressful.

Use The Right Tools 

You should have all three tools to get the job done.

  • Rake 
  • Dust pan
  • Trash bag

You should also purchase rubber gloves for sanitation purposes. 

Also, don’t forget to dispose of your pet waste in the garbage! Double bagging is frequently required when placing pet waste in the trash to protect trash collectors from germs. 

After the cleanup it’s best to get a disinfectant yard spray in order to kill Zoonotic diseases. 

Fun Fact: When it comes to scooping pet waste, the side that appears most stuck to the ground is always the one that picks up easiest.

Have the Correct Outwear

Wear the right shoes and watch where you step. It’s important to not wear open toed shoes when you scoop the poop. We also recommend you buy dedicated shoes for scooping the poop so that you don't spread any potential diseases.

In addition, avoid wearing sunglasses when scooping poop. The reason is that some sunglass lenses actually make it harder to see pet waste so you’ll actually end up stepping on pet waste. Gross, we know.

Be Consistent With Scooping The Poop

Pet owners need to scoop the poop on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. This will depend on the size of your yard and the number of dogs in your household. The longer pet waste stays on the ground, the greater a health risk it becomes for your dog and family. So scoop the poop consistently.
