Thread: Regarding Pet Waste Disposal

  1. #1

    Exclamation Regarding Pet Waste Disposal

    Hey everybody!!

    I'm doing some research on the improper disposal and treatment of dog feces in local areas and I'm trying to work out a user-friendly and sustainable system to improve this issue. If you could take 5 minutes of your time to answer 5 questions I would deeply appreciate it!

    1.- Do you often take your pet for walks?

    2.- Do you often pick up after your pet whether it poops in the backyard or a public area? (be honest)

    3.- Did you know that the improper disposal of your pet's waste by leaving it on the lawn can result certain roundworms and other parasites lingering on the soil for years?

    4.- Do you feel there should be pet waste disposal stations available in parks?

    5.- Do you feel that receiving an incentive for picking up after your pet in a public area would motivate you to do it every time?

    Take care!

    1.- Do you often take your pet for walks? - Yes

    2.- Do you often pick up after your pet whether it poops in the backyard or a public area? (be honest) Yes, but sometimes I just mow them into the grass, depends if it's time to mow or not.

    3.- Did you know that the improper disposal of your pet's waste by leaving it on the lawn can result in ringworm parasites and eggs lingering on the soil for years? Ringworm is tinea, the same as atheletes foot, it is not a worm.

    4.- Do you feel there should be pet waste disposal stations available in parks? yes

    5.- Do you feel that receiving an incentive for picking up after your pet in a public area would motivate you to do it every time? No

    1.- Do you often take your pet for walks?

    Twice daily walkies.....Or leash free and walk daily.


    2.- Do you often pick up after your pet whether it poops in the backyard or a public area? (be honest)

    Own garden, depends.....Any near house scooped daily.....Any further away can dry out and make great smoke bombs when mowing.

    Public area, Of course I do. Would I say otherwise on a dog forum...



    3.- Did you know that the improper disposal of your pet's waste by leaving it on the lawn can result certain roundworms and other parasites lingering on the soil for years?

    Do you know vaccination and worming will reduce/prevent that risk?


    4.- Do you feel there should be pet waste disposal stations available in parks?

    No, ......Imagine the poor council employee that is greeted with half bagged spills in and on the bin.



    5.- Do you feel that receiving an incentive for picking up after your pet in a public area would motivate you to do it every time?

    No, the fines are enough incentive.

    1.- Do you often take your pet for walks?
    Once a week to the park usually.

    2.- Do you often pick up after your pet whether it poops in the backyard or a public area? (be honest) Backyard no, public yes.


    3.- Did you know that the improper disposal of your pet's waste by leaving it on the lawn can result certain roundworms and other parasites lingering on the soil for years?

    I worm my dogs regularly so there should be no problem there.


    4.- Do you feel there should be pet waste disposal stations available in parks?

    Yes. Bag dispensers as well.

    5.- Do you feel that receiving an incentive for picking up after your pet in a public area would motivate you to do it every time?
    Not really plausible... fines for not picking it up makes more sense.

    Twice daily for around an hour each, unless it's pissing down with rain.

    2.- Do you often pick up after your pet whether it poops in the backyard or a public area? (be honest)
    Yes, I'm a bit compulsive about it in the back yard - can't stand craps lying around. Occasionally at the park she sneaks one out when I'm not looking but I pick up all the ones I see - including any other dog's crap that is where I will walk. I call them "kharma craps" ie the ones you will step in if you don't pick them up.

    3.- Did you know that the improper disposal of your pet's waste by leaving it on the lawn can result certain roundworms and other parasites lingering on the soil for years?
    Didn't think that likely if the dog is wormed regularlily but there are plenty of other reasons to pick up.

    4.- Do you feel there should be pet waste disposal stations available in parks?
    Yes and bags. And ours get used a lot. Like I think maybe they should be emptied more often than once a week.

    5.- Do you feel that receiving an incentive for picking up after your pet in a public area would motivate you to do it every time?
    Won't make much difference to me but I think it might help other people if they get a random jackpot payout for putting any dog poo in the bin - not just picking up their own.

    Once a day.

    2.- Do you often pick up after your pet whether it poops in the backyard or a public area? (be honest)

    In the backyard - always. We only have a small yard and they always poo on the lawn. If I leave it, it gets stepped in. As for public areas - I've never had to. My dogs always seem to hold on. Must get embarrassed in public haha.

    3.- Did you know that the improper disposal of your pet's waste by leaving it on the lawn can result certain roundworms and other parasites lingering on the soil for years?

    Not something I think about. I worm my dogs regularly.

    4.- Do you feel there should be pet waste disposal stations available in parks?

    Bags are a good idea. Other than that, most parks have general waste bins. No need for a special pet waste bin. People are immature and that could be asking for trouble.

    5.- Do you feel that receiving an incentive for picking up after your pet in a public area would motivate you to do it every time?

    Don't really see how this could work. People often leave dog poo lying around simply because there is no one around to see them do it.

    1.- Do you often take your pet for walks? Honestly - we are pretty infrequent these days

    2.- Do you often pick up after your pet whether it poops in the backyard or a public area? (be honest). Home: do a poo run every 2 or 3 days. Public: Pick it up immediately...I hate dog poo laying around where anyone can walk in it

    3.- Did you know that the improper disposal of your pet's waste by leaving it on the lawn can result certain roundworms and other parasites lingering on the soil for years? Not if you worm them

    4.- Do you feel there should be pet waste disposal stations available in parks? I think there should be pet waste disposal stations wherever there is a rubbish bin

    5.- Do you feel that receiving an incentive for picking up after your pet in a public area would motivate you to do it every time? No, I pick up my dog poos anyway...and not because I might get a fine, but because its gross to leave it on the grass verge of someone elses house

    1.- Do you often take your pet for walks?Yes Daily mostly on our own rural property, weekends in towns and villages

    2.- Do you often pick up after your pet whether it poops in the backyard or a public area? (be honest)Always in Public areas, we have a five acre garden and the dogs tend to go in hidden areas, so only when it is visible.When we walk in the pastures/paddocks I don't bother at all. My dogs do not go on lead, that is from Obedience training, you loose ten points if they go in the ring, so they only go on lead when told

    3.- Did you know that the improper disposal of your pet's waste by leaving it on the lawn can result certain roundworms and other parasites lingering on the soil for years? The parasites are there anyway from bird and other animal poop. The only way to keep your animals worm-free is to get them tested and when they have worms worm them. We do not have a routine worming schedule, we get our dogs tested every three months and so far have not found many worms in their faeces at all. It all depends where you live and what your dogs come in contact with

    4.- Do you feel there should be pet waste disposal stations available in parks? I still think people are responsible for their own disposal, but it would be handy

    5.- Do you feel that receiving an incentive for picking up after your pet in a public area would motivate you to do it every time?I don't need any motivation, because I think it is the right thing to do, but some people most likely do. I think there should be more Rangers patrolling the off leash areas to control some owner/dog behaviour



    It is one of my pet hates to see people walk away from their dogs waste. I often hand them a bag and say "have you forgotten a bag, here have one"
    I get some satisfaction out of that.........
    Pets are forever

    1.- Do you often take your pet for walks?
    I don't but the boss does close enough to every day

    2.- Do you often pick up after your pet whether it poops in the backyard or a public area? (be honest)
    Again I don't but the boss does every day then maybe a couple of times in one day.

    3.- Did you know that the improper disposal of your pet's waste by leaving it on the lawn can result certain roundworms and other parasites lingering on the soil for years?
    Had no idea about that, but it is never on the lawn for that long to worry about it even if this is true.

    4.- Do you feel there should be pet waste disposal stations available in parks?
    Here as you walk into the oval they have got special things in place where you can take a bag to collect the droppings if it should happen while in there. So this is not an issue here.

    5.- Do you feel that receiving an incentive for picking up after your pet in a public area would motivate you to do it every time?
    I hate it when we take our walks and you have to dodge the land mines left behind by an uncaring owner. I think this one comes down to common decensey. If you care you will clean up if not then they are the one to leave it there.
