We love to walk, who doesn’t really? And most of the time when we walk go for walks, we have to…Go…if you catch my drift. So mom always carries her little dog walking purse she made, and sells in my Boutique, ((shameless plug)). That way she always has poop bags, and a way to carry them once they are full.
But not everyone is so great about picking up after their dog. One place we like to walk when we are here in Utah is on a paved trail beside a river. Lots of people use the trail for walking, running and biking.
Sadly lots of people walk their dogs here too, and don’t scoop the poop. Can you imagine how upset people are that walk or run and go splat into a pile of poop? YUCK!
So it got us thinking, how can we educate people to scoop that poop? How about signs on the trail that tell people the dangers of not picking up the poop and to please please scoop. In Jackson Hole on the trails that are busy with dogs there are poop bag dispensers. This is a great idea we think. If poop bags are handy, more people are surely going to use them…right??
The nice folks at PoopBuddy sent us a one month sample pack of their subscription service. For as little as $8 per month you get plenty of poop bags, plus a couple little sample packs of treats, delivered to your door step. How easy is all that.
If more people knew about services like this, would they scoop more? They wouldn’t have an excuse anymore not to. As in, “I’m out of bags…oh my, now what?” And the bags are cute, cute matters!
Having bags handy is obviously just the first step. Education is the second, and honestly the hardest. We haven’t had the chance to try this out yet, but since mom always has plenty of bags on hand, we had an idea. The next time we see someone walking away without scooping the poop, mom will kindly say something like…”Oh I hate when I run out of bags, here use one of mine. We need to protect our environment, don’t we.” That’s not aggressive, like “Hey…idiot…Pick that shit up!!” It’s all in how you word it. BOL.
How do you guys handle it when you see someone not scooping the poop? Any other ideas on how we can all educate people? Today is the Scoop that poop blog hop, brought to us by our great friend Sugar the Golden retriever. So join in, and share your ideas.
And on a Monday Mischief note..
Mom pulled a kinda fat tick off my little tiny face on Saturday. She though I had something stuck to my fur, pulled it off, and noticed wiggly legs. Freaked out me, and her. Maybe mom more. She had never seen a tick before. Yuck!!! Mischief on the stupid tick.
