People are spending more and more money on pets, increasingly regarding them as members of the family, substitutes for children, or even as companions superior to human beings. As professionals in the pet care industry, pooper-scoopers must be aware not only of the depth of feeling that people have toward their animals for a number of positive reasons, but also that one of the things they love about their dogs compared to people is the trustworthiness and reliability they find in their furry companions.

“The trend to treat dogs like children is becoming increasingly popular,” added Jancy Ulch of K. Sutherland PR. Ulch represents both Bella & Beau and Planet Dog, both of which cater to humans who seek to give their pets special treats.
“This may be due to the growing population of young, working professionals who aren’t quite ready for children, but still want something to spoil and love,” Ulch continued.
“The major concern with animal waste is that it is nasty stuff in it that can either make you sick or make the environment sick. Animal waste, like human waste, contains bacteria and viruses that if it gets into water bodies that people use can give them all kinds of nasty things, the most common of which is stomach flu.” — Jon Devine, a senior attorney at the National Resources Defense Council
