Hmmmm...something I never thought of as we've only had her three weeks. We have 2 acres, 1 of it is wooded. She picked a spot where she likes to go. We just let her go.

We have an acre of land. I usually pick up 2 or 3 times a week. Both my dogs normally go in a particular area, however, my pup will occasionally venture into the more overgrown areas of our land (we back up to acreage as well). If he gets into those places, I don't always go after it because I'm highly allergic to poison ivy/oak and it abounds in our area.

I do it every time. I'm like a poop inspector lol. I must look crazy to the neighbors but I like to know if there are any worms and if it is the correct consistency.

I also pick it up every time, whether it's in our yard (95% of the time) or out on a walk (5% of the time). Not a big deal with the biodegradable bags these days. It then goes in our regular garbage for weekly pickup.

This isn't my favorite time of year, since as soon as the snow finally melts, there'll be lots of scooping going on. Fortunately the dogs like to go way out to the farthest corners of the property, lol. Otherwise, I pick it up asap.

We scoop about twice a week but usually my oldest kid (almost 10) does it. But I always watch to make sure his poo looks ok. Lol

In the warmer months I have a poop scooping service come out once a week to deep clean the yard. In the snow months I scoop as it thaws. XD

Scoop up after each BM and spray down the potty area after every few peepees. Just to prevent smell and him stepping in his pee/poo and tracking it back in the house. Hose is right next to the potty area and it drains well. So... not too much trouble. I think it helps keep the flies away too
