That Ain’t Lazy, That’s Smart!

A dog owner in New Jersey recently posted:

“Name the laziest thing you ever did!

When had a dog i paid a dog poop removal company to come pick the poop up in my backyard once every 2 weeks.”

His friends replied with these comments:

“Na that ain’t lazy”
“I need this 😂 my backyard is big ”
“That’s not lazy that’s smart lol I hate picking up dog poop 💩 😝 🤣
“I don’t even plan on picking up the poop in my back yard but then again i dont want rats and stuff so ima have to do something. I didnt even know a company like this existed”
“Maybe I should call them too”
“I wouldn’t call that lazy. That’s smart. Lol”
“you know I wasn’t walking around with a shovel picking up after Barry we weighed the same lol”

Over the decades the old “How lazy can you get?”  retort has been made lots of times when people first hear about businesses that will clean up dog poop.  But what’s really lazy is just leaving the mess in the yard!  Lazy… and unhealthy for the dog, the yard, the family, and the environment!

It’s true that not every dog owner needs a professional pooper-scooper service.  But for a lot of good people there are a lot of good reasons to welcome the availability of scooper services.

Many busy professionals work crazy long hours, have a lot of appointments and meetings, and have very little free time to do the things they want to, let alone the many chores that have to be done around the house.  For this type of dog owner, leaving the job of shoveling the crap in the back yard to someone who can be relied on to take care of the work properly, regularly, and in an environmentally responsible way takes a burden off the family. It’s one less thing to worry about, knowing that it will be taken care of.  And considering the time involved, for many of these professionals it actually costs less to have a service do this that the value of what they could be doing in their own line of work in that same amount of time!  For so many folks, they just have better things to do, things they’d rather do, that shoveling dog poop, cleaning up the tools, and keeping bags of feces stinking up the trash cans for a week at a time!

And of course, there are a great many dog lovers who for one reason or another the physical task of scooping, shoveling, walking the back yard, bagging, carrying the bags, is not just an inconvenience, but a real difficulty or even an impossibility. Among the gratifications of being a professional scooper is the wonderful feeling of knowing that with our help so many people can keep the needed companionship of their beloved animals when they would otherwise not be able to keep their pets because they can’t do this necessary part of responsible pet stewardship.

Certainly not least among the reasons pooper scooper services are popular is simply the “Yuck Factor.”  People LOVE dogs, and dogs in the family contribute so much to the people’s happiness, health, and personal development, but a lot of people just can’t stand this one disgusting part of taking care of their pets!  Fewer family fights over who has to get out there and clean up the mess contributes to a happier family life, too!

Responsible, caring, loving, busy and hard-working people love their pooper-scooper services!

Lazy people don’t bother to clean up the mess.
