Dog Poop Is Not Fertilizer
People often believe that leaving dog waste to decompose in the yard is good for the lawn, but the truth is that dog poop is toxic to grass. In addition, pet waste could carry bacteria and parasites that are harmful to other pets and humans. Be sure to pick up pet waste in a bag and dispose of it in the trash, NOT THE ORGANIC WASTE!
