Ever mow dog dung?

Do any of you have clients that seem to never pickup from "Fido" when he does is duties on the lawn. I hate it when that dung gets all stuck in my mower's tire tread when I mow. It smells so bad. most of my clients pick it up before I show up but, a few just leave it.

I did but then they dropped me because I was charging $90 a month for 2 cuts instead of $60 because of all the sh!t I ran into. Don't care though.

I have one customer that doesnt clean up at all. This is his first year with us and he will be getting charged more next year. I thought he would get the hint to pick up after the dog when I decided to mow around it whenever I came to it.

Charge more and use their hose to clean out your tires and leave the mess in the yard

I heard a story from my friend who actually did a Fall Clean Up and was using a Backpack going thru a large pile of leaves. He smelled something stinky, looked down for a second and the pile of doo-doo came and hit him right in the face. Talk about a "SH*T*Y" Day! lol
