Infographic: What Happens When You Don’t Pick Up Your Dog’s Poop?

It’s totally natural.

Wild dogs don’t pick up and bag their poop, so why should I?

It’s like fertilizer, I’m helping the grass to grow.

My dog is healthy, there’s no germs in his poop.


Sound familiar? These are just a sampling of the excuses pet parents use to justify not picking up their pooch’s poop. In fact, each and every one of those excuses is false.

It’s estimated that at least 40% of dog owners leave their pet’s poop where it lands, never giving it a second thought. With nearly 73 million dogs in the United States alone, that’s a lot of poo being left behind!

If the yuck factor isn’t enough to convince you to grab and bag, maybe the serious effects your dog’s doo has on our environment will!
