Job #2: Scoop the poo
No joke. Picking up poop is NOT the best part of having a pet, but it’s in the job description. Otherwise, you’re risking a Revenge of the Turds situation that could harm the health of your pet, your kids, even the shellfish you have for dinner. When it rains, bacteria in pet poop travels very easily from backyards, parks, and trails to the nearest stream or storm drain. Healthy kids, pets, fish. It’s all connected.
Take a bag with you on your dog walk rather than rely on finding a pet waste station on your route.

Start by bending over and picking up your dog poo – known as the downward dog position – then put it in a bin!” – Unknown
