You may think neglecting the clean up of your pet’s waste is not a big deal. “I am the only one who does that, so how can it cause harm?” Well, you are not the only one that does it and it does harm. The environment, other pets and humans to name a few. Here is how to make it easy to take care of this simple task of cleaning up after your pet:

Purchase a pet bag dispenser. They are easy to find in your local pet store or on Amazon – and are not expensive. You can wear it around your wrist and have a bag handy to pick up Fido’s poo when you need it. Then, place the waste where it belongs, in a waste can.

Make it a regular family chore to pick up after Fido in the yard. Waste that is all over a back yard is no fun for the pet or the humans who share this space. Waste left draws bugs and when wet can be a slippery mess and falling hazard. So every Saturday, assign one person in the house hold to the task of disposing of the waste. It’s a lot easier to keep up with then clean up when you have to before a family event.

It’s that old saying: ” An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” That applies here. Just pick up the ounces of waste and avoid the pounds of problems accumulated waste causes. You will be glad you did and so will the other park walkers and your neighbors!
