Scientists discovered that dog poop is a major cause of water pollution and it poses significant hazard to human health.
A very easy way to get rid of dog poop is to put it in a plastic bag and discard it in a trash can.
Here's how to pick up the dog poop with the plastic bag:
1. Pull the plastic bag over one hand like a glove.
2. Pick up the poop with your bagged hand.
3. With your other hand, grab the open end of the bag and pull the bag inside out. This will put the poop inside the bag.
4. Knot the bag and discard it into the nearest trash can.
If you just can't handle your dog's poop with your hand you may want to use a pooper scooper. These scooper consist of various long-handled rakes, shovels, and/or spades that enable you to scoop up the dog poop without having to bend down and get close to it.
Pooper scoopers are a good choice for owners whose dogs relieve themeselves in their own yards. However, scoopers aren't as good as bags for owners whose dogs defecate while walking, because the scoopers are rather cumbersome to carry.
Pooper scoopers are available at most pet stores, at pet product Web sites, and in pet supply catalogs.
