We have two dogs who produce quite a lot of poo in our garden. I have bought "Dog Toilets" from two different manufacturers and have to say that both are totally useless.
Do you know of any method of making a dog loo for the garden. There are composting toilets for human waste used in rural areas. What do boarding kennels and dog breeders use?
We have a large garden and although the dogs get plenty of walks on the moors etc, they still produce about two or three piles each per day on the lawns.
I really hope than you can come up with some suggestions. I am not happy about burying the poo, because we live in a very rural area and do not want to attract vermin.
Quite by chance I recently came across a company with a very memorable name - Whoopsies Away. This would seem to be the kind of thing you're searching for. Anyone else got any bright ideas or know a UK distributor?
Just had another product pointed out to me by @airdmoss on Twitter http://www.doggybog.com/
Looks easy to install, only 30 minutes! And not too expensive. And they also do flushable poo bags. A whole world of poo disposal has been opened up to us by this question!
We've just checked out legally what we're meant to be doing with our dog poo and were surprised to find this advice from the Government:
If possible, you should encourage your dog to use your garden - you can then either bury the mess or flush it down the toilet. Do not put dog mess in green garden waste bags or rubbish bins.
