Dog Waste Facts
1) Dog Poop is NOT Fertilizer!
Dog poop in particular is not fertilizer like cow manure. Contrary to popular opinion not all poop is created equal. Dog's have a high protein based diet that creates a very acidic excrement or waste product. Far more info than you ever wanted to know about your favorite furry friend's business, right? But, it's true. Cow manure is in fact good for vegetation because it in fact started out that way. Dog's diets are very different. Most dog foods today are composed of beef, chicken and/or pork products. This creates a high acidic waste product that is bad for your grass and can leave your back yard looking like, well, not looking like much of a yard at all.
2) Dog poop is a very significant host of bacteria that is harmful to humans
One gram of dog waste can contain 23 million fecal coliform bacteria. Dog waste can spread giardia and salmonella as well.
3) Not picking up after your dog may be illegal
Most metropolitan areas have imposed fines, some cities up to $750 if you don't pick up after your dog in a public place. Many cities are looking into legislation that will apply to private property as well because of its impact on the environment.
4) Parasites from dog waste can be passed on to children, other dogs, and even themselves
