Meet Colorado Pet Sitting Superstar, Mark!

I’m in charge of: Not only do I give your pup a chance to poop while you’re away, I provide stimulation! By reinforcing pet parent training and changing up our walk routes often, your pup gets exercise for the body and mind…and nose!

My furry family: No pets right now. Sad face. I am new to Colorado and I wanted to be sure I have the schedule, environment, and a proper home for a pet to thrive in! I’ve got my eye on a Shiba Inu rescue for when the time is right!

My superpower would be: Ooooo…my favorite icebreaker question. I think I would choose invisibility to get to the bottom of Area 51 and expose the formula for Coca Cola…I’d also see a lot of free movies and concerts! If I could have two super powers, I would combine my invisibility with time travel to go back in time and watch the great artistic masters paint.

Best thing ever: Good food, live music, and the love of my wife. All three of those things wrapped together in varying daily quantities make me a generally pretty happy fellow.

Hidden Talent: The ability to flawlessly toss a poop bag into an open distant dumpster. Also, people tell me stuff. All the time. It’s weird.

Life Philosophy: Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life! Thanks for using Out-U-Go! and helping me live out my philosophy every day!!

10 Alternative (and Fun!) Ways to Pick up Dog Poo

Now wouldn't this be nice?

Every dog walker, be they professional or recreational, has been there: watching in horror as your dog struggles into that familiar squat while you check your pockets for a bag that you already know isn’t there.

Folks without dogs will almost always, at this point, assume the worst of you. Yet folks with dogs know that dogs enjoy counting beforehand the number of bags you’ve brought with you and then pooping that number of times plus one.
So, what are you going to do? Since litter and public trash containers abound, dog walkers usually have options. The next time you’re without bag, try one of these:

  1. Prop a subscriber’s newspaper against their door and steal the bag it came in.
  2. Paper towel tube. Can be found in dumpsters or gutters. Scoop it up like you would a snow cone. Once the mess is contained, DO NOT TARRY. Throw parcel away immediately or the structural integrity of the tube will fail and YOU DO NOT WANT THIS.
  3. Grocery sack. These can be found in almost any tree.
  4. A squirrel.
  5. In one of those lone shoes available by the roadside.
  6. Weave a basket from blades of tall grass.
  7. Ask to borrow a stranger’s sock for a magic trick.
  8. If the dog was kind of constipated, you can use a penny and sort of Tiddlywink the poo into the storm drain.
  9. Kick it under the sod.
  10. Train your dog to bury it.
