Scoop your dog's poop. It is a courtesy for those walking behind you. It is also provides a healthy and environmentally-friendly environment AND it's
the law. With over 4,500 licensed dogs in Prince George, dog waste is a big deal.
What can you do? Follow these steps to reduce pet waste contamination.
Always bring a plastic bag when you walk your dog, even if you are just heading out around your neighbourhood. All off-leash parks are equipped with at least one pet waste station, including a dog bag dispenser and garbage can.
Use the bag as a glove to pick up the waste. Scoop up the waste and turn the bag inside out and around the waste when disposing.
Do not throw bags into the trees or off to the side of the trail. Improperly disposed dog poop can lead to potential health issues for both humans and the environment. Plus, it is considered littering and is unpleasant to look at within our beautiful parks. Properly dispose of pet waste by placing the waste into the pet waste stations, located in our parks, or by flushing the waste (not the bags!) down the toilet.
