These are my first of many questions:    Do you have a lot of wet poop to deal with? - does it still easily scoop with the rake or do you have to use a different tool?  It seems like it would still leave poo smeared on the grass.

Where do you disinfect your shoes and tools?  in the street/driveway before getting in your truck?

Thanks!!!!!!

I carry a blow dryer with me? That way if I have wet poop, I can get it dry and rake it up.

If you can find one like the one the princess had in the movie Space Balls you can dry them up in record time. Grin Grin Grin

Get a shrub rake. It will have wide plastic tines. Vigorously rake the area and rotate around the area. Between the wide tines and the thatch in the grass, you will be able to remove the majority of the poop. There may still be a slight stain, but using a sideway raking motion, you will do an acceptable job. We get nothing but soup when it rains here, and I've never had a complaint. You can only doo so much.

The perfect advice for us FL scoopers.

If we knew where Andi1 is, maybe someone could offer something else?

tie grocery bags around your shoes if you are really worried. Otherwise, rinse off with a hose if needed.

As for wet poo, I'd pick it up with some thick paper towels. The grass will still have smears. The hose is great for that. You can also hose off your rake afterwards.

  Another trick for Florida scoopers or anywhere there is wet poo for that matter is this:  After scooping if you're really worried that the rake (or whatever tool) you use did not do an adaquate job, get a fistful of sand and sprinkle it on top of the wet area.  It will act as an asorbent agent and help firm up the smeared poo.  Then re scoop if you want.  I very seldom ever have to do this.  Like Paul said with his technique, that usually does the trick. 

  Tuscon Scooper, you can't really be serious can you?  Not only with the bags on your feet, but paper towels as well.  Not very professional, if you ask me.  Plus like Bobby said, you could slip and fall pretty easily.  That will also cut down on your 3 yards a week dream as it  takes a lot of extra time to tie bags on your shoes and use paper towels to pick up.

I've learned to get down and dirty, with gloves.  I was lucky to find 100 gloves at Harbor Tools for $8 and they are stronger than regular medical gloves and textured to provide grip.  I've only had to do it a couple of times but a man's got to poo what a man's got to poo.

Kitty Litter.  Sprinkle a bit on, then scoop as normal.  Done.
