    How many of you pick up the dog poop? Free or cost? If it's an additional charge, how much?

    Seems like it's a good way of making a little extra money. payup

    Dog poo to me is like a baby's diaper - it's ok so long it's your own.
    And right along those same lines: If it's yours, then you need to pick it up.... And don't expect someone else to do it for you.

    Yes i do the doo. If it takes me 10 minutes or so it cost them 10 bucks. Make sure they are agreeable before adding the service.

    That's what I'm thinking. It wouldn't take a long time, plus it's good money. I don't know though. I agree with the other guy-- I don't really want to touch poop unless it's my kid/dog.

    I started advertising to pick up animal waste at the time of thier lawn service and was charging them an additional $25.00 a month, but like the other guy said, there is to many lawns out there to worry about the extra $10.00. Now my staff does courtesy calls the day before service to make sure gates our unlocked and animal waste is picked up, otherwise that area won't be mowed and they still have to pay the regular charged rate. Hope this helps :)
