I am the same as Castlemaid!
3 acres, 2 of them treed, so I only scoop what is in the dog pens/kennels. I don't scoop over the winter. Once everything is dry I do a big clean, then once a month for June, July, August and September. Then the snow comes.

You didn't have Once a Year as an option.
I'm on five acres, with lots of woods surrounding me, so the rest of the year, the answer is: never. I only scoop once a year after the snow melts. That should be coming up in two or three weeks now.

|d4lilbitz||Now that there is a new puppy, after every poop so he doesn't try to eat or play with it. I have three dogs now. Before the puppy, once a day as the other two are both 3 and 4.|

|volcano||Apache is raw fed so the poop is small balls that turn white as they dry up. I dont clean enough, after the snow I filled a small plastic grocery bag. I quit cleaning when I pick up a fresh one and then it stinks bad.|

I feel like a bad momma sometimes because I rarely pick up Gunther;s poo. We do it more in the summer when we go out in the back and play for longer periods of time.
He mainly goes in the very back of the yard or on the sides of the yard so the middle isn't covered in poo. I do check his poos about 3 times a week though to check for consistency/worms. I never find any issues which makes me happy . It rains so much here though that it decomposes. I'm sure I'll be poopy scooping more when I have a kid but for now it's just the DH and I and we know to look before stepping haha. Oh and we have a pretty big back yard so finding the poo in the areas he normally goes in is quite a job.

I have 3 GSDs and a teeny yard, so I check the yard about 4 times a day. If there's poop, I pick it up. So, in the morning when I get up, when I get home from work, sometime in the evening, and before I go to bed.

1. I hate stepping in it
2. We have an apartment yard - shared - and there are cameras..you can get fined for not picking up poop *coughMyNeighborsDont* so I have tons of footage of me bending over picking up poop in case I ever get blamed...
3. Prevented my dog from ever becoming a poop eater
4. Check for consistency, etc
It becomes a habit I guess to just always pick it up right away.

|Ellimaybel||Two to three times a week depending on the rain. Gunther goes on only one half of the yard and Cyclone's tiny non smelly poop I don't even know where he goes. I think he's going up in the bushes and trees so that's fine by me lol|
