    did a leaf clean up the other day, and had poopy all over my tarp and rakes and im sick of it, what is everybody doing when you do clean-ups and should i charge more bucks for the free poopy clean-ups too?should the home owner clean it up before i get there?:eek:

    Go ahead and charge extra. Most of my clients who have dogs are rather embarrassed if there are any "remains." If there is that much that you need to clean all your stuff, charge, they will understand and maybe clean it up. One or two little piles just deal with it.

    People who have dogs I let them know before we come out to clean up.If there is a lot of crap I will skip that part of the yard.In the begining of the season it tough until you get your schedule on time.

    They're not gonna clean up the dog bombs for the lawn guy, ya gotta spot it when you are there giving the price in the first place. Figure it into the total price, and tell them ,or not, that a part of the price is for fecal removal.
