best way to dispose of dog waste

Hello-

We have just moved from a house with almost 2 acres of land that had about 3/4 of an acre fenced - mostly in woods - to a house with almost no woods and only a 1/2 acre total. So needless to say, our Golden's area has been considerably downsized. It is also mostly all very nice manicured St. Augustine grass. This makes seeing the watse and scooping very easy. So we have decided that scooping and disposing is the way to go. We have a small creek in the back yard, so spreading in the few natural areas we have is out of the question. Also, we don't want to put it in with our domestic garabage because we don't want the smell in there. Any ideas? We have seen the dog septic tanks but I'm also worried about smell with this - and also location of it due to the creek in the back. I'm not putting it in the front yard...and the side yard on both sides is virtually non-existant.

Thanks for any ideas!

Rick

Rick,

Removing from your property as quickly as possible is the healthiest thing you can do.
If you were to bag it then seal the bag the smell should be kept to a minimum.
Perhaps a small dispenser for bathroom sized disposable garbage bags would work.

Recycle the plastic grocery bags from your shopping. Scoop and put in bags and tie to seal and drop in garbage can outdoors.

I have done what twelvepole suggested and I haven't had a problem with any odor. Just be sure to tie the bag with a tight knot. I also will scoop the poop with a garden trowel, bring it indoors and flush it.

I have been a fan of the grocery bag method myself....

FYI the recommended ways to dispose of pet feces is burning or trash- NOT flushing. This is because some of the parasites that dogs carry, especially puppies i.e roundworm, are not killed by our sanitation process, and are contagious to humans....eww

After reading this I am curious as to where you live, since they recommend flushing in our area. I am wondering why your sanitation would not kill the parasites and such, since ours does...

Just Curious...
