Thread: Doo-Doo Removers in Brisbane

  1. #1

    Default Doo-Doo Removers in Brisbane

    Hey Guys and Girls,

    New here... will post an introduction in the appropriate sub-forum after this post.

    I've got a pair of little (okay, they're not so little but in my eyes but they'll always be my babies!) doggies, and my girlfriend and I have kind of weak stomachs when it comes to doggie poo. One of them's a Staffie x Collie and the other is a Great Dane x Bull Arab, so you can imagine there's quite a lot of waste generated on a weekly basis.

    Does anyone know someone good in Brisbane (particularly in the Redlands, Thornlands is the suburb to be exact) that provides a good poop removal service? We'd want it done weekly too. Looking at other sites on the net, the going rate would probably be $20 a week, but we're open to this. We don't have much money spare but neither my partner or myself can stomach this job (as weak as that sounds).

    Thanks!

    Sorry, no idea even if such a service exists.

    Hmmm, makes me wonder how it would be with kids and nappies.

    Neither do I.


    I know you said you have weak stomachs when it comes to this but I always found if you use a long shovel and scoop it up with that, you can barely smell it at all..

    Well thats just me, but let us know how you get on.

    Are you talking about removal at the end of the week for what you have collected? Or are you trying to find a service that comes at the end of each week to pick up the build up off your lawn for you? (just to clarify )

    If its removal of your own collection I would suggest a below ground deposit system.

    Enviromental Dog Poo disposal system so your pets dont mess up gardens and homes

    I have an english mastiff X bull arab guy so I know the poop you dealing with lol, I do poop patrol around my yard 3 times a day just to be sure... Don't want him treding or rolling in it during a Zoomie then bringing it back inside. Plus I have 2 young kids who aren't always aware where they are stepping.

    Also if the smell of picking it up is really getting to you, maybe invest in a set of swimmer nose plugs/clips to wear every time you do it, and also a great suggestion from Belle is the long handled shovel.

    Being serious here, vicks vapor rub under nose would help, they use it at crime scenes for smells of decay.

    I'm curious as to who's been picking up the OP dog's doo previously, seeing as neither the OP or partner can stomach doing it...


    Gee's i hope this is not a "wind up" "wasting our precious time & effort posting"... goodness knows we have had this happen in the past...

    Nah, this is a serious topic Floyd. My partner currently does it, but she despises the job so much that she's willing to pay to have someone do it. Consequently, it doesn't get done as much as it probably should. Hence my inquiry.

    I know there are services in Sydney and WA that exist, that do this kind of thing. Odd if you've done it your entire life, but I guess it's much like mowing. There's just some couples out there that are office bitches and don't get out into the sun nearly as much as they probably should, hence the need for services that traditionally seem a little odd.

    I do like the idea of a kind of disposal unit. 650x700mm hole is huge though! Obviously there's the probably of the initial harvesting of the doodie, then there's the problem of where to put it. This solves one of the problems. I suppose if the smell is removed it wouldn't be nearly as bad... Might try the vicks thing with a long shovel.

    Kinda suprised at the lack of products out there to deal with this kind of thing, considering how popular dogs are especially in Australia. Gap in the market maybe?

    I guess that Australia expects people to clean up after their own dogs.

    After all it is a part of being a dog owner.


    How do you deal with this out on walks and at the dog parks?
