Top Five Reasons to Clean Up After Your Dog

Each dog's owner/handler is responsible for picking up and disposing of their dog's waste. This will help keep the park environment clean so that dogs, children and adults are happy and healthy. Pet waste left behind can transmit harmful diseases to other pets and children. Be sure to look for the "Dogipot," located at every dog park, as well as other parks and public gathering locations. The Dogipots provide courtesy litter bags to encourage dog owners to contribute in keeping The Woodlands Parks clean.

  1. It's a common courtesy. Only irresponsible dog owners leave their dog's waste for others to look at, step in or clean up. In addition to creating a foul odor, leaving your dog's poop encourages other dogs to mark that spot.
  2. Dog waste is unhealthy. Pet waste carries disease-causing organisms such as Giardia and Salmonella which can make water unsafe for drinking or swimming; one gram of dog feces contains an average of 23 million fecal coliform bacteria.
  3. Dog waste biodegrades slowly. Biodegradation process is very slow especially in places where dog population is high. Poop can accumulate faster than it breaks down. During summer months, dog waste can become especially smelly, and that is annoying to everyone.
  4. Dog waste makes dog owners look bad. Dog poop is one of reasons for negative opinions of dogs. Not picking up after your dog tops the list of complaints about dogs.
  5. Your actions set example for others. Teach children how to properly clean up after a pet. Tell friends and neighbors about the ill effects of animal waste on the environment. Encourage them to clean up after pets.

Please clean up after your pet.

Dog's owners/handlers are responsible for the actions and behavior of their dogs at all times while visiting a Woodlands Dog Park. Glass containers, food in bowls, long lasting chews and human food are not allowed inside the dog park area.
