How often do YOU scoop?

Is poop an issue at your house? Do you pick it up every time or just when it starts to stink? Do you have a special potty place or puppy septic tank? Do you never pick it up, and just let it decompose naturally? I want to know how YOU deal with the POO

Every day before walk. Otto has to play ball before walk, it helps him settle his mind and get some of his energy out.

Every single time for every single dog in training. Otherwise someone steps on it and tracks it on the mats in the training room and it smells bad. If you made a mound out of all the dog poop I've picked up you could name it dog poop mountain.

I scoop their potty area at least once daily if not two or three times. I have an airtight garbage can with a liner I place all poop in until full! Airtight can really controls the smell!

Because I have a decent yard, and Titan goes in one area (back right corner).. I do once or maybe twice a week. Regardless every night before the gardener comes. If he had a TON of stools it would be more frequent but he doesn't.

Every time he goes. I have small kids (6&8) , and even though he goes pretty much in the same area, I would be afraid theyd step in it.

Once a day usually in the mornings. I toss it across the road or into the woods/fields. I don't live in a heavily populated area.

I pick up promptly after each dog. Earth rated poop bags to scoop with then into a lined can that I spray weekly with Odoban.

There is little I hate more than stepping in feces. Plus this keeps the dogs from tracking through it and the yard clean and clear for my granddaughter to play.

I chose never, because we live on 8.5 acres with mostly woods. I'm lucky Lola always go in the woods so it's never an issue. Connor goes in the yard sometimes, but then my oldest child is responsible for poop pickup.

I always scoop the poop on walks. But in my own yard it is one/two times a week in the winter and everyday or two in the summer. I don't like the small of poo. Ziva's poo area in the yard just happens to be right outside my bedroom window. So, in the Spring when windows are open(ie: now) I clean everyday.

I voted once a week because it depends on the time of year. But once a week at the minimum.
