Petpooskiddo has a list of common reasons dog owners do not pick up after themselves, and solutions, which help keep the area clean and safe.

If you choose to go against these tips, you could be breaking the law!

Multiple cities, including News York and Los Angeles have laws against not cleaning up after your dog, charging possibly hundreds of dollars in fines to offenders.

So, owners, let’s all be responsible, because poop is serious, not just seriously annoying.
