Pups Beware: Waste Can Now Be Traced!

5
It's not a pleasant subject, but it's one I felt I must address to my fellow canines. People are getting pretty upset about parks and public spaces being ruined with pet leavings. It's such a big deal that a company called Poo Prints can DNA test our doggy doo and then trace it back to you!

We Need to Watch Our Backs! (Or at least our backsides)

To me, this is a scary thought! Normally I am out and about with my staff who are very good to handle my every need. But sometimes I just feel the need to get away from the Pawparazzi and take a private trip, and, I'll admit it... I just have never learned to clean up after myself!

This minor lack in skill may have come from my sheltered affluent upbringing. I don't know. I just have so much to busy myself with... world travels, being at the helm of a growing business, my music, and appeasing my adoring fans... well, you can see that I must mete out my skills and my time carefully.

Top Poo Perpetrators

We can't be blaming the dogs here, for obvious reasons. But I have seen several examples of negligent pet parent/staff during my travels:

  1. The distracted type (especially chronic phone users.)
  2. The exercise fiend (too fast or driven to care.)
  3. The pretender (who act like they didn't see the mess.)
  4. The unprepared (who forgot their baggies.)
  5. The lazy (self explanatory.)
So if your neighborhood or apartment complex has a problem with these offenders, you might want to contact Poo Prints to see how DNA technology can help. Watch this video to see how it works to clean up this minefield of a mess!

Is this an invasion of privacy or a good idea?

Love,

Baxter

It's a great idea but often apartment complexes will charge residents for the initial testing which I feel should be a part of non-refundable pet deposits and pet rent I already pay. I pick up after my pet (and horde baggies for it) but I'm tired of dodging everyone else's. In many cities, it's a law. It also can end up spreading diseases to other dogs so be a responsible pet owner.

I read an article that stated one apt complex required all pet owners to sign and register their pet(s) for this DNA testing/bank when they signed their lease. It turns out later that they busted one owner who had been denying and neglecting to pick up all the mess that their pet left. Seems the evidence nailed the suspect.

WOW! This is great now the offender can't hide from the truth and get slapped with a fine! Best idea yet! Wish this could be done in our parks and beachs too! B
