Frequently asked questions


Can I use dog poop at fertalizer 

Unless your dog is on a completely plant ba sed diet, the answer is i s a n absolute no. In its raw form, it can actually be toxic to your soil. Dog waste needs to first be safely composted in an enclosed system before being considered a beneficial aid to the environment.


Can't I just mow over the waste and it just go away?

Absolutely not. Mowers will actually chop up the waste into smaller pieces and spread it further throughout your yard where you, your children, and your pets continue to step in it and then bring it into your home.


My dog only uses the restoom in one specific spot, what's the urgency?

It can take over one year for dog waste to decay, but even when it has visibly disappeared, the parasite eggs it contained can linger on for years in your soil – leaving your family and your pets vulnerable to serious infection.


I'm not good with technology, can I just call you and set up appointments?

Yes of course! Whatever is easier for you works for me. Just call Dave @ 765-881-3547


Will you clean poop out of houses?

Our insurance does not cover us from cleaning feces out of houses.


Will you clean chicken/Horse poop?

We are only doing dogs (for now)


The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) confirms that hookworms, ringworms, tapeworms and Salmonella can be spread by contact with infected dog waste.
