Dog poo

Back to Love Food Hate Waste

Dog Poo – yes you could send it to landfill but why not take control and responsibility for your dog’s poo.

Dog poo is one of those issues you can’t ignore if you live on a small section. You have to be very careful with dog and cat poo as they can contain organisms that can be harmful to humans.

Therefore it is best to deal with these products separately from the compost heap destined for the veggie garden.  That’s not to say you couldn’t have a dedicated compost heap for your dog poo but you may struggle to get the volumes you need to create a hot compost. If you decide to go down this path, check out our Hot Composting section.

Other low tech systems are out there, here’s a link to one on youtube. You could use Bokashi powder as an alternative to the biological options they give you in this video. There are other systems out there, find the one for you.

When walking the dog, you might choose to use Biobags,  because they always do do the deed when you don’t want them to. The bag and its contents can then be thrown straight into your dog composter.

Here’s a product that is simple to use and doesn’t take up a lot of space -the Doggie Dooley

Here is the link to how to get one of these gizmo’s – The Doggie Dooley.
