Winter Poses Special Challenges for Dog Waste Cleanup

DC Outlook: February 16, 2016

From our friends at DoodyCalls

For many dog owners, cleaning up after their dogs during the cold winter months is a challenge, when yards often are wet, icy and often covered with snow. Then comes spring, and they are faced with the huge task of dealing with so many accumulated pet ‘contributions’ to their lawns.

Fortunately, a company called DoodyCalls, the first national pet waste management franchise of its kind, has teams of cleanup experts in DC, Northern Virginia and suburban Maryland ready to do the job.

Of course pet waste is not the only part of making yards ready for warmer months, but it poses health risks for families to consider. Bacteria in dog droppings can be transmitted to kids. It also presents serious problems for area waters, especially streams and lakes.
