Working with a professional Pooper Scooper.

After stepping in it, weed wacking it, getting it caked on tires:
Could working with a professional Pooper Scooper actually make life better.

Ya trying to drum up biz for Major doo doo man.

Only have a few lawns to even worry about, but I don't care and it dries rather fast and falls off.

And NO, I never get it on my shoes.

Could be some easy $$$ in sub-contracting or commission referrals.

Welps, I only have one customer w/ a dog, and Thay have a service for poop, posted about it on a thread a month or so ago.

If I go give an estimate for a lawn and thay have dogs, I ask them about the doo, if thay have a service I will cut thier lawn the following day if it fits into my route. Or thay need to pick it up themselves that morning. If I find any doo, on the lawn I just skip it. If I keep having to skip or fingin presants it thay get droped.
If I show up and see the lawn coverd in crap and thay dont have a service I tell them thay need to find someone else.

Picking up poop, garbage, dog toys/bones. is not my line of work and is not in any ones job description. Nor is running it over.

Answer in brief, I would not expect a profit from refering a certin service, as I would not expect to pay someone to refer work to me. I'll give them work and thay will eventually give me some back. If not its not a good relationship and I need to start refering people to someone else.

LGF,

If you do as much leaf work as you claim, and at least 5% of your clients have dogs.... this time of year they can't see it all so we know you wear some from time to time unless your just stuper-vising. I became magnet for sh$$ the other day and believe you me, theclient got an earfull and a slight increase in their bill of course.
