    Dog issues

    I searched but didn't really find anything, and I'm also not sure if this is the place for this...

    I have a great dane and a vizsla that poop a lot. After just getting my new sod last week I'm curious what everyone does with dog poop?

    We taught our dog to pottie on command and when she uses the dog door on her own, we taught her to only go in one area.

    Not sure how this is related to swimming pools. Can you trade them in for a couple of those Yorkshires?

    Hmm, I guess this is the "everything else" forum. LOL. Cut out a decent sized portion of your sodded are, install pee gravel or similar, teach dogs to us that area only. Problem solved.

    Re: Dog issues

    We have a large dog (part Rhodesian Ridgeback, part hound) which obviously means large poop. We discovered that if we fed her the high quality meat feeds there is less residual. We have been using Iams High Protein, but recently have started on the Costco Kirkland high protein formula.

    Skippy keeps a shovel handy to pick up poop with and toss it into the woods before he mows.
    Ive actually seen an advertised company that will scoop poop in your yard for like $5-10 per week.

    Re: Dog issues

    YippeeSkippy makes a good point about the type of dog food you use, the cheaper ones have a lot of fillers which go right through the dog. It helps that our Mastiff likes to do his business under bushes which help keep things out of the walking areas.

    Re: Dog issues

    Pea gravel and training, lots of training, will do the trick. If you want/need training ideas/help just let me know.

    Lime will also help after the training to keep the area "fresh".

    Re: Dog issues

    Our first winter with a dog... Can't wait to figure out how to get her to go outside in the snow to do her business when she's a sissy about even walking on wet grass...

    Re: Dog issues

    You get to go out first and shovel paths to where you want them to go. I can remember times where the paths were taller than the dogs. We lived in Alborn, which is north of Duluth. It sometimes snowed higher then the snowblower auger opening.
