I was just wondering how often everyone cleans up their yard of the nice little presents our doggies leave us. I do it everyday, every other day sometimes, but not often! I have a "poop bucket" with a lid that I put a trash can liner in with a little pine sol (helps keeps flies away) in and dump everything in. There is one good thing about 90 degree heat, the turds dry up fairly fast and are easier to get out of the grass ;)

I use a rake and the funky long handle flat shovel. I am sure it has a name but I have had it for years....lol.

everyday when we can.

Hubby has a pail and shovel and knows the prefered spots that the dogs go and he is very very good about the whole thing :)

However, winter is a real task.

Never, I trained my puppy to only poop in the woods / bushes so my grass area of the yard is always ready for walking.

If we're out somewhere he'll always try and find a shrub to crawl into to poop inside lol

I do it daily most of the time, occasionally I'll skip a day. I don't like the smell (in the summer), the flies, and I like to be able to walk around my yard without worrying about stepping on landmines. LOL

I said every other day, but sometimes it's every day, sometimes it every three days.

I do it about every week and a half to 2 weeks. That being said, we don't have a fenced yard, so they have our whole property (a few acres) to go on, so its not really in a concentrated area, its in the front, its in the back, its in the side field... I usually just pick it up in the area right near the house, or where people walk.

Every other day is the best estimate, although sometimes I'll pick it up right after she goes.

Every day - sometimes 2x per day with the 2 dogs. I can't stand the thought should they step in it (by accident) then coming into the house.

i put daily b/c i generally do it daily...sometimes when things are hectic or during the winter it may be every 2nd/3rd day but then it might be every time they poop....so, it kinda balances.....

Ww live in a townhome so we don't really have a yard. We are required to keep our dog on a leash and clean up right away. If we had a yard I would still want it cleaned up at least once a day.

Well, about weekly for me....my yard is divided into two sections, a courtyard area between my house and detached garage, and a larger area behind the garage. My dogs poop in the farther back area, and I admit it's kind of out of sight, out of mind back there. If they poop in the courtyard area, which is where we sit and whatnot, then I get it right away.

ive never had a dog that poops alot, and they usually find a spot they all prefer so it just makes it easier for me, so about weekly

Same here... although, I do it everyday to everyother day. I ride around in a golf cart and look for poop. I keep a bucket in the back of the cart and scoop it in there.
