Barefeet in clean, green grassONE FREE WEEK


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. Get the facts in this video (at right) demonstration and sign up for a FREE WEEK.

dog waste spreads germsWhy should I use Sgt Pooper's dog waste yard cleanup service?

Dog poop is not “fertilizer” any more than human waste is fertilizer. Harmful organisms embedded in dog waste persist for weeks and can be transmitted to children and adults. If it’s on your grass, it’s on your carpet and soon on your feet. Sgt Poopers® cleans up the mess and keeps your Dallas yard clean and beautiful throughout the year.

How does your service work?

We visit your home on a scheduled day. We scoop your yard and bag the waste. City ordinance requires it be disposed of in the trash where it goes to the local landfill where it is contained to protect the environment. We'll notify you if we see anything abnormal in your dog's stool that may be cause for concern (for example, worms, foreign objects, or loose stool). For your pet(s) and family's protection we use veterinarian-approved disinfectants to clean our equipment and shoes prior to and after each service.

Do you use biodegradable plastic bags?

New studies (click here to read) have shown that "biodegradable" plastic bags damage the environment far more than regular plastic. As it degrades without oxygen in landfills, bio-plastic releases large quantities of methane, a greenhouse gas 23 times more powerful than carbon dioxide. Just because it is "biodegradable" does not mean it is good or environmentally healthy.

How often should I schedule service?

We clean up doggie landmindsThere are 1.2 million dogs in North Central Texas — a Dallas-sized city’s worth of untreated raw sewage sitting in our backyards. Just like human waste, canine fecal matter is not “fertilizer.” It should be picked up 1-2 times a week before it is washed into the nearest lake, river or groundwater by your lawn’s sprinkler system or by the rain. Additionally, experts recommend frequent cleanings to minimize the danger from pathogens harmful to humans. Owners of several dogs should give us a call so we can recommend the best service for you.

What areas do you service?

We currently service downtown Dallas (high rises), North Dallas, East Dallas, Uptown, Lakewood, M-Streets, Turtle Creek, Preston Hollow, Bluff View, Highland Park, University Park, White Rock Lake, Lake Highlands, Hollywood Heights, Forest Hills, Swiss Avenue, Richardson and Addison.

Do I need to sign a contract?

No contract is necessary. You are only required to sign a statement that,
1. Gives us permission to come onto your property on service days,
2. Outlines rate structure and billing terms, and
3. States that service is month-to-month and may be canceled any time by either party.

Is there an initial service fee?

There may be supplemental fee for the first service if there is an excessive accumulation of waste. This will be discussed with you before service is rendered.

Pathogens can live for weeks in the grassCan my dog be in the yard while you're scooping?

In most cases, yes. We love dogs and get along well with them. But to ensure the safety of all parties involved we request that if your dog is not good with strangers, please restrain or confine it on service days.

Should I unlock my gate?

Yes, please give us a key, supply the combination, or unlock your gate on the scheduled service day as we do not jump or climb fences.

Can I schedule service for a certain day?

We scoop your dog's poop Our service days are based on location; however, if you have a special event and your yard needs to be in top shape, we can arrange for a regular service day to be changed for that event. Extra charges may apply.

Will the rain affect our service?

We generally work regardless of the weather. However, heavy rain or lightning will force us to postpone our visit until the next day or later that week.

What if I want to skip a day?

We ask that you call us at least 24 hours in advance to notify us. If excessive waste accumulates during skipped days, you may be charged extra when service resumes.

What if I forget to unlock my gate?

This cloud has a silver lining. We have to charge you for any service call. However, the following week we will not charge you extra even though we will be doing twice as much work. So in the end, you will not be penalized.

Are you insured?

Yes, we carry full liability insurance.

We make yards heathier for dogsWhat is your schedule on holidays?

Should your service day fall on a holiday, your service will take place on the following week day. Services will resume back to their normal schedule day the following week. We observe the following days: New Year's Day, Good Friday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving (Thursday and Friday), Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
