Why Do We Scoop Poop?

Dog droppings are a nuisance and a health hazard. They attract flies, spread disease, and dog waste is one of the worst causes of water pollution.

It’s important for pet owners to "scoop up" after Rover on bike trails or wherever Rover roams. Carry a supply of plastic bags to clean up after your dog, slip a bag over your hand and collect the droppings. Then pull the bag off of your hand so that the droppings are inside (like pulling off a sock cuff-first). Tie the bag shut and dispose of it in a trash can.
