Default Dog Feces...

Dog owners really need to clean up after Fido.

DANGERS OF DOG POOP
DANGEROUS DOG POOP?
Author: Wiki Pets

Cleaning up after your dog can be a stinky job, but someone's gotta
do it.. Constant clean up is necessary for a healthy environment
for you and your family.

IS DOG POOP DANGEROUS??
Love, food, and shelter were all things you actively agreed to
providing for your new pet when you purchased or adopted them.
Sanitation and cleanup are also important facets of pet ownership
that are critical to the health and well-being of your entire
family.

Sorry about the ****ty topic!

Dog feces is as high as 3rd on the list of contributors to
contaminated water. Cleaning up after your dog is one guarantee in
the life of every pet owner. Left un-checked, your yard can quickly
turn into a mine field of feces in a week or less. On average, dogs
do a number two twice per day which adds up to about 14 piles of
poo in just one week, per dog. Contrary to popular belief, dog
feces is not fertilizer and does not provide any benefit to the
soil.

SO WHATS IN IT?
Dog feces may contain parvovirus, whipworms, hookworms, roundworms,
threadworms, campylobacteriosis, giardia, and coccidia. If left
unattended, these parasites will contaminate the water, soil, and
can even cause infection in both pets and humans (especially
children). The microscopic Hookworm larvae can be passed to another
pet or person directly through the skin or by accidental ingestion
as can other bacteria.

WHICH PARASITES CAN HUMANS ACQUIRE?
Yes, humans are capable of contracting hookworms, tapeworms,
threadworms and campylobacteriosis. This is the most significant
reason to avoid allowing dogs (especially puppies) to like your
face and mouth - affectionately known as "puppy kisses". If a dog
has recently eaten feces or attempted to groom their hind quarters
and come into contact with this infectious material, there is a
chance the parasites will be passed directly into your mouth.
Children are especially venerable to infection because they tend to
enjoy playing in the dirt, where parasites such as hookworm larvae
lay dormant waiting for a new host. Young children may also put
dirty hands or toys in their mouth, further increasing the chance
for infectious material consumption.

DISEASE PREVENTION
Pet feces can be catastrophic to the local water table,
contaminating nearby ponds, lakes, rivers and drinking water. When
feces is allowed to remain on the soil for long periods, rainstorms
will begin to dilute and break apart the feces and slowly spread
the bacteria on other contaminants into local water sources. If
your yard happens to hold water for extended periods of time, the
problem may be amplified.

To avoid potential infection, dog feces should be removed from the
yard every 1 - 7 days, depending on the size of the dog and number
of dogs in the household. Larger dogs will need more frequent
cleanup, as will households with more than 1 dog. A family with one
Pomeranian will have a much lower environmental impact than the
family with 2 Great Danes.

If you are too busy to clean up after your dog, or the thought of
it just makes you gag, there are many services available today,
such as Pet Butler, that will gladly do the dirty work for you. A
sanitation expert will locate and remove any feces found on
premises 1 or more times per week usually from around $10.00. Some
areas do have legal statutes that regulate the cleanup and disposal
of pet waste, so be sure to contact your local health board for
more information.

Sorry about the sh!tty topic.

My favorite are the people who bag the poop and just leave it laying on the trail/path/sidewalk/fairway.

We've gone over this a million times here on DGCR. Dog owners who don't pick up their dog's poop should be put in the stocks. One hole 1. Same goes for dogs off their leashes (when other people are around).

The people who let dogs off leashes are fine if they can keep the dog in control or stopping the dog somehow. I had a DX Valkyrie ruined due to guy not having unleashed dog in control or stopping the dog somehow but I was about to buy a new disc anyhow in Champion just was going to do it a bit later like a month or so and not right after the round. The dog almost bit me when I tried to get the disc back some how he had teeth in the disc as he tried to bite me. Only off leash dog that caused problems. The other dog just peed on a disc by accident, very old like 16-17 year old tiny dog and excited seeing us and I gave him a very crappy backup mini as his disc yeah he was that small a cheep knock off Wham-O mini I got from a 4th of July Parade with the companies logo poorly double stamped on the disc was the right size

Dogs really need to discipline their owners better.

Two thoughts:

1) If the OP thinks dog poop kills a round, he better avoid courses like Hawk Hollow and Iffy Hollers.



2) Playing like crap still beats the hell out of stepping in it.


...or landing in it, for that matter.

I've had a disc land in relatively fresh doodoo. It was like spin art. Very nasty spin art.

On the Whole it is just poo. My dog does not poop on the fairway. He is a private pooper! Poop on the fairway should be cleaned up.

I am more offended by bud light cans, water bottles and other trash that people deliberately pitch on the course. I can kick a little dirt over some dogsshhiitt.
