Pet owners, would you pay for


#1

Would you pay for someone to pick up dog pp from your yard? If so how much do you think you would be willing to pay for a weekly service?
I am just asking this because I have a friend in Colorado that does pet sitting and she just added this to her business and is making a ton of money picking up p
p! :eek:


#2

Well, I do it weekly, but maybe $5-10 a week?


#3

Depends on the size of the dog :smiley:


#4

I was walking my dog the other day, I saw these turds that were- no joke, almost as thick as a coke can and as long as paper towel rolls.

They were all over the yard.


#5

That’s what the kids are for.:wink:


#6

:rotfl: :rotfl:
well at least they are easier to find than the little ones???


#7

LOL, that was what I was thinking! This is part of DD’s chore list. (much to her dismay) She calls it “Poo Patrol” :smiley:


#8

I would also pay somebody to change litter boxes, esp. now with DH on the road to Wellville. $5 for the first box, and $3 for each extra box would be a good deal.


#9

Did “poop” really need to be censored? :rolleyes:


#10

I don’t know if it needed to or not, I just thought I would be on the safe side and censor it myself :smiley:


#11

I really hate picking it up in the winter and spring…because of the snow and the rain…such a mess.

My newfoundland died last June and I am waiting for the better weather here before I get another one. I can’t stand not having a dog, but I am not missing picking up his ‘business’ one bit.

So, yeah, I would pay…sign me up.


#12

And my husband complains about the size of our dog’s poop :stuck_out_tongue: :rolleyes: …I should let him read this and tell him it could be worse!!


#13

I’m at the point where I would love to pay someone to pick up the p**p at my brother’s house. It’s impossible to walk anywhere in his yard without stepping in it. :mad:

But yes, if I had a dog and for some reason couldn’t keep up with cleaning the yard, I would definitely consider paying someone to do this task for me.


#14

It seems I am the only one who is willing to clean up after the dog in my house and I am fed up of it. I would definitely pay for that service. I am struggling to get down to it just now and the garden is a mess. I am to ashemed of the garden to have anybody in it. I won’t even let the kids enter the garden just now. It has been so wet and miserable and I just haven’t been able to clean up as usual. I think my dh should be doing it till baby arrives.


#15

If I was paying someone to dog sit my dog then yes I would pay them to pick up any that the dog left while they were there. But otherwise I would do it myself.


#16

I voted no since either I or my dh take care of it. But you wouldn’t imagine how much my dog poops!!! We filled half a 5 gallon bucket!!! :eek: What’s worse is that our yard is huge and he does it all over, so we have to look for it all over the grass!!! :mad:

Maybe we would pay for it, now that I think of it…


#17

I have a small cocker spaniel, and she only goes in a small part of the yard.

It takes me about 2 minutes a week to do it.

So unless someone is gonna do it for pennies, I’m doing it myself.


#18

I would definitely pay someone to pick up the poo from off the sidewalk in front of my apartment.


#19

No, but I’m the thrifty sort who doesn’t spend money on things I can easily do myself, even icky things like poop patrol.


#20

Nope - that’s what my dh is for! :smiley:
