We do charge a one-time/initial visit fee which I assess through a phone consult. I've charged anywhere from $19.95 to $99.95. I bring the shovel to these visits, because... ya never know!

Sorry if I was a little rude in this post or my other ones. Yea for some people like elderly, people who think there top good, and busy people this is a great service. I only said that the local company buy me was a rip-off because they were charging for once a week with 2 dogs for medium sized yard for 1 year was around a grand!!! Your prices seam reasonable. Now do you take care of like dog sitting places? There's a place by my house that "baby sits" dogs durning the day. I would imagine there's 10+ dogs there. So would you guys visit regularly to pick up the poop because they could never "keep up"? Good luck!

I just run over it. Dog crap makes the grass grow faster so I have to cut it more often and make more money.

Run an unvented enclosed trailer for a day in the summer and the baking dog feces inside will guarentee you don't run it over again.

Any special tricks or techniques to finding all the droppings relatively quickly or do you just wander around like the rest of us?

It's pretty straightforward work. Each tech's basic gear is:

- Landscaping rake
- Large Dust bin
- lots of small white and large black trash bags.

We grid the yard, making straight line passes up and down, kind of like mowing the lawn. We then do perpendicular passes up and down for a more complete clean.

Then we disinfect with plenty of water and an application of bleach/water solution. Pet Domestic "We Cleaned Today!" door hanger on the front door, and off to the next house!

When one factors in overhead...okay lack of overhead compared to expensive equipment for lawn care. Also no heavy lifting required.

Wonder if it's possible to get $1 a minute...including drive time...?

Very nice good luck, I too have been seeing this businesses pop up in my area, many well to do people with nice homes don't want to deal with it just as they don't want to deal with landscaping. The people with the most money have the biggest home and yards, no surprise those people typically aren't 'outdoor' people but business folks. IE your client.

Love these lawns. Panorama of another pet waste free lawn in Potomac, MD, with Lola chilling on the patio. (Side note: National franchise pooper scooper company couldn't do the work because scared of their three Bernese mountain dogs. HA!)

And another angle of a beautiful McLean, VA home with twice weekly pooper scooper service.
