What should I do with my pet's waste?

When you're outside on a walk and your dog poops, it's your responsibility to do three things:

  1. Scoop it.
  2. Bag it.
  3. Trash it.

And when your pet poops in your own yard, don't let it linger. Pick up pet waste right away if it's going to rain (or is already raining), and pick it up from your entire yard at least once a week regardless of the weather forecast.
