Thread: Doo-Doo Removers in Brisbane

    Just buy a long handle shovel/spade from Bunnings i've seen cheapo ones going for $6 at one stage,probably get a good one for under $20.

    Then you've got atleast a meter between you & the waste,then just simply put it into a paper/plastic bag & chuck it in the bin.

    There are services out there that do offer this Pugz ( sorry your name is a cow to get my head around ) but most are private little groups...like a from home type job/service if you get what I mean.

    They exist because there are many people that are fantastic dog owners/carers but for whatever reason( old age-injury etc) need to have their yard cleaned.

    Contact your local vet and feed stores etc and go from there

    Hi Pugz i was the same as you-i'm a nurse so dont have a weak stomach but when it comes to dog poo i was such a princess!
    But i bought a metal pooper scooper (a long handle pan and scoop) from the reject shop for $8 and it's no where near as bad anymore. You cant smell the mess and if the sight is still bad for you as it is for me sometimes, just have a bucket of sand handy and put a big handful of sand on the poo, that way you cant see it and it's not so bad. I do this for when my dogs get the runs.
    Maybe you could put an ad on Gumtree.com.au (it's free) i'm sure there will be someone wanting to earn a little extra cash.
    Dont feel bad, alot of parents cant stand the sight of vomit that of their children, that doesnt mean they love them any less or makes them bad parents. Some people just have weak stomachs!
    Hope this has helped! Cheers

We don't have much money spare but neither my partner or myself can stomach this job (as weak as that sounds).

    Thanks!
    The Exotiques & Birds of Paradise shop at Victoria Point Shopping Cent had a proper pooper scooper for sale... It was a mechanical closing type on the end of a long handle... Makes the job more pleasent to do !!

    EDIT.... YAY.... My 1000 post !!

    Sounds awesome.

    The only pooper scooper that I have ever seen is at the Reject shop and is worth $12. Never have bought one as I use a long handled shovel lol.

    How do you deal with this out on walks and at the dog parks?
    Don't have to. My girls don't poop when they're out of the yard. Don't know why, haven't trained them to do that specifically. I think I've only seen Amy (my oldest, 3yrs) even pee outside the yard maybe twice? The little one isn't even that keen on it.

    Makes walking really convenient actually knowing you won't have to drag poopie around with you.

    Oh I dream of the day that happens with any of my three!

    As soon as we get out the door and around the corner, one of them always decides to go lol..

    Nothing negative from me, I have a friend that used to offer this service in Sydney, was going to do it back here, but couldnt get the business

    I would ring up some pet sitters/dog walkers. I have been asked about it, and i have no problem going over to someones house and picking poop up, as long as i get paid

    When i was out of action for 11 weeks with my leg in a cast i would have loved to have someone come and do it every few days (yes, normally done every day, but no way i could have afford to pay someone every day!)

    Good luck finding someone
