Ottawa is full of Dog Poop

Spring brings wonderful things. Warmer weather, flower buds, fresh spring air, and just a wonderful energetic feeling.

The one thing I don't like in Spring is when the snow melts and reveals what many irresponsible dog owners all over the city have left behind. A smelly disgusting pile of dog poop.

There is dog poop everywhere. On pathways, sidewalks, fields, parks and even the road.
Come on people, scoop the poop!

and please don't toss the bag outside either or leave it hanging on a tree, which is seen around here quite often. Pick it up, bag it and toss it in a garbage can, or better yet, bring it home and flush it down the toilet. Let's work together to keep our city beautiful.

The solution to pet waste is to NOT put it in the trash! This puts waste in the local landfills where it can contaminate the water source. Pet waste is known to be one of the leading causes of ground water contamination. Composting is also a poor solution as many experts claim that composting does not create temperatures high enough to kill the bacteria present in pet waste. PetHabitats.com sells the original, 100% flushable bag. It's unique, two ply design allows the bags to hold together when they need to yet dissolve quickly in water. We also offer the WasteAway which is a back yard waste receptacle that mounts easily to your home near the plumbing cleanout. You simply scoop the waste, deposit it into the WasteAway, give it a quick shot of water and the waste is flushed into the sewer system. This keeps pet waste out of the trash and our local landfills.
