    Hi everyone,

    A friend of mine and fellow dog walker who lives in America has started a pet waste removal business and is doing really well with it. Do you think such a business would work over here? I'm not so sure myself!

    I hope you are all doing well

    I suppose I'd depend on cost etc and exactly what you'd be providing.

    Even with multiple dogs, I'm fine with dealing with their poo on my own. I certainly wouldn't pay somebody to come and do it for me.
    I personally cant see too many people being interested, other than possibly older/infirm people - it's really not a big deal bending over with a bag a couple of times a day IMO ha.

    I would, however, be more interested personally in an idea that does something useful with the poo, rather than just sending to landfill or whatever.
    Black bin, blue bin, green bin, dog poo bin!

    Someone else asked that question recently. It might come up if you search.

    I don't know but some of my clients gardens are absolutely disgusting. I can only imagine that they don't care as most people could find a few seconds a day to do it I am sure.

    If I'm doing a visit or house sit I tend to pick it up anyway and don't charge extra for it.

    Something similar to this was featured on an episode of the Apprentice. A team of people went to a hotel or wedding venue and were employed to clear all dog waste from the grounds of the venue.
