Why Picking up is the Responsible Thing to do

Why Picking up is the Responsible Thing to do

Did you know there are over 8 million dogs in Canada and about 80 million dogs in the United States? With numbers like these, one thing comes to mind: that's a lot of poop to pick up!

Dog poop doesn't just vanish!

Picking up after your dog is one of the easiest ways any dog owner can do their part for the environment. All responsible dog owners know: dog poop doesn't just vanish! It's important to pick up pet waste as poop can contain viruses and bacteria. Wildlife forage for food whereas most dogs eat pet food rich in nutrients. So, when we start adding in nutrients from pet waste, the ecosystem can be thrown off balance. If not picked up, pet waste can contribute to pollution in our waterways. The best way to pick up after your dog is to bag it securely and throw it away.
