Dogs can be wonderful additions to any home, whether it’s a family, a married couple or just someone single looking for a little company. Having a dog can be practical, often adding a level of security to your home, as well as offering a great deal of companionship and compassion. However, dogs are not all smiles and strolls. Dogs, even the best trained dogs, will sometimes create a mess when it comes to dog poo. A well trained dog may commonly do their business outside, but it isn’t uncommon for accidents to occur. This leaves you as a dog owner asking the question, how to get rid of dog poo.
Getting rid of dog poop isn’t as difficult as it may seem. Of course, few people, like dealing directly with dog waste, and dog waste disposal isn’t high on the list of things people want to do. When a dog has an accident in your home, however, you need to deal with the problem immediately.
Perhaps the best way to deal with dog poop is by bagging it up. This is common and practical, but you need a few things. First, you’ll need a large enough bag to accommodate the dog poop. In addition, the bag needs to be plastic instead of paper. Secondly you either need to cover your hands with the plastic bag as you pick up and bag the poop or you’ll need plastic gloves when handling the poop.
You can also use a scooper as well. These are very popular methods of dog poop removal outside. From there you can bag it or, if you are at home, you can always flush it own the toilet as well.
Learning how to get rid of dog poo isn’t hard. It’s not the highlight of a day for most people, but it’s certainly a necessary thing to do. Whatever method you use, remember that if it is inside a home, such as on a flooring surface, you need to act quickly to remove the poop and you also need to tend to proper clean up and disinfecting of the surrounding areas as well to avoid stains and lingering smells.
