So today I was driving around town and 2 cars ahead of me was a nice F150 with a lot of graphics on it. So naturally i'm looking at it trying to figure out what kinda business it was because these graphics looked very expencive and well done and the truck was nice, new and clean. So eventually the car infront of me turns and i'm behind the truck, now I'm looking at the sides and there are just brown spots all over it??? and i pull up behind it, the tailgate read DR. POOPER SCOOPER. I'm looking at the screaming WTF? I was amazed!! there slogan was "our duty is to pick up your pets duty" I was in aww. The was a guy on the back with a bag and a shovel!! I can't explain how nice the graphics on the truck looked ether and it was a new body style F150 ext cab 4x4. It also read on the tail gate "$10 per pick up". How does he make any money? and afford that truck? Its hard for me to believe he does that as a hobbie. To top all matters he is out of the richest town in the county Sparta, New Jersey. I wish I had a camera to take a picture of his truck. I think i'm going to some how get a picture of it and post it for you guys. It was truely amazing. But anyway, hell for 10 bucks, i'm refering him to all my accounts that i have a problem with doggy mess. I think he is going to help out my business this year.

OH WAIT IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME ABOUT THIS GUY, The best part of his truck was he posted his website on the tailgate to.
WWW.DRPOOPERSCOOPER.COM

I though you guys would be quite interested in this guy.

and web site of course www.scoopdoggielogs.com
quote from website

"Why not let a professional de-poop your yard of your best friends little gifts?
We will even deliver Fido's favorite food right to your door.
Rates starting at 30.00 per month with one visit per week.

Yeah Really..

$10 to start. Say he does oh I dunno, 4 stops per hour. That's $40 an hour. If all he needs is a couple of plastic garbage bags, maybe some gloves, a shovel and a scoop, then what is the big deal? He has no machinery, insurance, or other expense. Hell, he could do it on a bicycle for that matter.. And if he uses like the produce-size grocery store bags, if he leaves the "waste' with the customer, he has no dump fee...

Wonder if he gets called back that he missed a spot and argues with the customer that the spot is fresh poop and wasn't there when he was there last.

One of my best and oldest customers takes care of people's dogs for them. She has a small workforce of people that work for her. She feeds and waters dogs, as well as walks and cleans up after them. Mostly for people too busy to do it themselves. Makes a ton of $$ doing it, as well.

Heck I think the poop industry has a niche. Think of it, a shovel and a garbage bag. Talk about LOW overhead. Your profit margin could be 80-%90.

I bet long ago people laughed at the funny guys trying to charge to cut your lawn.

I was raised on a farm so poop does not bother me.

With that little overhead you could buy a gold plated shovel

The other thing, was it $10 per visit or $10 per pick up? Either way I could see the guy making money.

So say if he did once a week, thats $40 per month per place, if they were close you could do easily 4 per hour. then to have no weather related down time.

The way I see it

4 poop pickups per hr
7 hr work days
5 days a week
thats 140 stops a week (easy)
X $10 per stop 1400 per week
X 52 weeks per year thats $72,000 gross
Not bad considering his overhead.

This is BIG business. Very low overhead compared to mowing/scaping & short service calls. Can bring in Huge $$$ if you have good density.

In our area they get $8/week and that goes on 52 weeks a year. The guys drives a little pickup(probably 40mpg) and has started to do other things like deliver dog food and picking up the dreaded cat litter. He makes as much as we do cutting the yard????

KINGjosh
02-09-2005, 07:25 PM
Ok , yah his profit margins are alot higher but think about it, Lets say an average size lawn for him is 1/2 acre - 1 acre, all that walking around in that yard looking very closley for gold. You would probably miss some piles, not to mention stepping in that crap all day long, plus smelling it early in the morning.
Plus not to mention the dog probably will get to know you very well and distract you doing your job. If you like dogs! But that money does sound freakin awsome though.

Id rather smell fresh cut grass in the morning, Im young now but maybe when i get old that might be an option

The guys around here are getting $10 to $15 per yard they use like plastic shopping bags that fit in a 5 gallon bucket and when there done they take the bag tie it up and place on the front step for the home owner to throw out. most dogs have a certain area they will always go in so it probably only takes 5 or 10 min. to do not to bad at all.

I'm with MS on this one. Years back, before I got smart about it, I busted an edge off a deck with out even touching it. Smacked the poop with a shovel and sheared off a hunk. Lucky for me, good customer relations and the deck was scheduled for replacement. When they go down wet and then freeze real cold, they stay.

Heck, he may not know it, but even Red "Golden Boy" Boswell can't do it.

I venture to say that I am the best in the world at dealing with frozen poop. I'm very modest too. You haven't been a scooper until you've scooped a harsh winter. That warm weather stuff is for kids.

PSK Gene

By the way, I agree with MS and Pete. I will attempt most piles, but have a sense for what can and can not be removed. I removed a lot from a deck yesterday and was able to use a shovel and come up away from the deck surface. Don't try this at home kids, this requires a pro. Seriously, it could happen that I'd hurt the deck, I'm not denying the risk. Frozen poop on cement, not as much concern unless you are really pounding the pavement. On grass you have to be very careful you do not take chunks of the lawn up.

That's what I thought. If it doesn't budge with a swift kick from the boot it stays. My problem (the customer doesn't seem to mind) is they have a SMALL yard. Literally, 2 4x4 plots of grass, a inground pool, and a patio surrounding it. Oh, did I mention 3 LABS!! So 75% of the poop is on cement. Ugh!

I saw a segment on 60 minutes a few years back, could have been the same guy in Jersey. Anyways, he was ex military, and makes really good money doing it. Like most of you have said, almost 0 overhead. Think about it, if the route density is tight 1 man and one truck with a $20 shovel and a bucket could probably do at least 45 houses in a day, that is $450 a day, 5 days a week so that is $2250 a week and $117,000.00 a year. Customers are probably not very hard to get and there is little or no competition. Of course, for my model to work you would need 225 customers which really should not be too hard.

Besides workers comp I don't see the need for insurance. What could you damage. Well I guess the guy that kicked the ice sickle poop and chipped the deck could have possibly used insurance in that case. This would have to be the cheapest insurance coverage available. What risk does the insurance company have.

I came across your board searching for discussions on waste removal.
YES! We(the dog waste removal community) are great people to team up with.

All For Dogs has teamed up with a landscape company(and we're looking for more) in our service areas. Many of our clients are extremely picky about their lawns and insist on it being well manicured. (And they don't want to do anything about it.) Pet friendly apartments and condo associations are also our big focus.

The assumptions of our profit is partially correct. The profit margin is incredible because cost is little. This business has much potential. However, minimal drive time and dogs who poop little is the key.

I started 6 months ago and I'm looking at getting my 750th client in the next few weeks. That's a lot of poop, but that's a lot of lawns to cut!

Anyone in the Joliet/Plainfield/Mokena (Illinois)area? I will give your clients discounts if you offer similar deals.

In addition, I am looking to go in with lawn care services for advertising in the spring. As there's a rush in landscaping in the spring/summer... waste removal is similar.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions:

I wonder if they get the old "I just dont think it needs it today" line?

i have thought a lot about this but do you think if you advertise on the board in vets offices and dog groomers. people will not take you serious about the true business your in lawn care. Thats the company that picks up dog pooh. Worked on a flier this morning for this i just don't know if i should do it or not. this would be full time work in the winter. i haven't seen snow in so long we can't count on that in the winter.need some feed back. plus the checking account is running low.

This would be interesting. Theres one other company around here that does this and they don't advertise much.

If I were to do this, I would have to put it in a different company name, wouldn't want poop picking and my business associated with eachother. If I actually do get into this I'll let you guys know how it goes.

I think I will offer it to customers I already have. Most of them pick up after I mow, after half the crap is on my tires. I can't stand it, especially when I rev up to leave and the mower is goin 15 mph and I end up having to reblow the drive After I see (and smell) what happened I'd do it just to save me the trouble of having to sqaushit every day.

WOW, this sounds like a good idea. I have never seen anyone in my area offering this service. Might be a good add-on to the lawn business. It will definitely help make ends meet during the slow winter months.

How hard could it be.

Lets see...

Mission Statement: Pick up Sh*it
Business Plan: Pick up Sh*t
Expenses: Sh*t holder(plastic bag), shovel,gloves,vehicle expenses.
Ads: fliers,local store boards, mailers and a big molded Sh*t on your hood of your car with phone number.

And don't forget the dog bones to leave tied to the customers door knob when the Sh*t has been removed along with a bill.
