This is somewhat of both a Lifehacks and a Pets question. My question is also short - but I think it's pretty self-explanatory.

When my dog poops on grass (such as on my lawn or a park) I find it difficult to pick up. I use standard poop bags. While I get a majority of the feces into the bag, there are still some clumps stuck in the grass. I also would like to avoid pulling up grass. It becomes increasingly harder to pick them up while keeping the feces that I have picked up in the bag. Overall, it becomes a disaster fast.

What is the cleanest way I can pick up all of my dog's poop on grass (if there is one)? Or is just getting the majority of it okay (it might be fine for my backyard. but I wouldn't want someone at a park to step in the remains of my dog's poop)?

  • Not an answer, but your dog certainly isn't the only creature pooping in the park. :) Personally I'm of the opinion that getting most is good enough, nature gets the rest, but I'll see what people who've had dogs in the last decade or two say!

    As "owner" of a wild running child I am very happy, that dog owners try to pick up as much as they can :D Thank you for this question! May 12 at 5:17
