Scoop The Poop


I hear you already saying, "what?"

The world is full of wacky dedicated days, but before you discount this one, consider the overall message. 

National Scoop the Poop week is intended to educate pet owners on the importance of cleaning up after their pets by education. 

By now, you should know what a pooper-scooper is.  If you do not, shame on you!

A pooper-scooper is any device used to pick up an animal's fecal matter. Pooper-scooper devices often have a bag or bag attachment. 'Poop bags' are alternatives to pooper scoopers, and are simply a bag, usually turned inside out, to carry the feces to a proper disposal area.  Most typically, you are the pooper scooper and you are using some type of poop scooping device. 


Dog droppings are one of the leading sources of E.coli (fecal coliforms) bacterial pollution.  One gram of dog feces contains over 20,000,000 E.coli cells.  While an individual dog's deposit of feces will not measurably, the cumulative effect can create problems of contamination of soil and water supplies. 

No one likes to waltz through the droppings that their own dog leaves behind, never mind the droppings that other dogs leave.  Cleaning up after your dog keeps public places looking and smelling good.  Cleaning up after your dog is also the law; the fine for not cleaning up after your dog is $100 in the City of Edmonton. 

Be responsible and scoop the poop!
