Dog waste is raw sewage, NOT fertilizer. Harmful organisms from dog poop transmit readily to children and adults and can survive for months on the ground. Just one week of accumulated dog poop can host 700 BILLION bacteria. Mowing just spreads the contamination everywhere.

WATCH VIDEO: Is your yard incubating toxic waste?

We Texans in general are misinformed on the subject of dog poop. When I mentioned to a Texas native that my wife and I owned a dog waste cleanup company in Dallas, she thought it was a great idea. Then she told me a story about the time she was walking her dog over at a school and someone told her to get the dog off the school grounds. The school defender told my friend that her dog was a "filthy animal" and shouldn't be allowed to poop on school grounds because children play there.

My friend was incensed. Not knowing my opinion on the subject, she told me, "I mean, dog poop is just fertilizer. When it's from a cow we put it on plants to make them grow." She didn't see anything wrong with letting her dog poop on school grounds where children play. It's a sad case of misinformation.

Fertilizer comes only from herbivores. Farmers themselves don't use dog poop for fertilizer. A) It has no nutritional value to plants because it is not made up of plant material. In other words, manure from cows is good for grass because it IS grass. B) Fecal organisms in dog waste can be absorbed by plants. Humans who eat those plants can become sick. So, while I do not agree that man's best friend is a "filthy animal," dog waste IS a genuine health hazard and the lists of diseases that can be transferred to humans by dog waste is long.

The problem isn't dog poop. The problem is misinformation.
