Choosing A Northern Virginia Dog Pooper Scooper Service

A freshly cleaned, scenic Virginia road free of any dog.

If you’re looking for a dog poop clean up service in Northern Virginia – keep reading. Or, maybe you just really enjoy learning about cleaning up and disposing of dog poop. Either way, we aren’t here to judge: at Pet Domestic, we’ve made it our mission to be the best at eliminating annoying mounds of doggy doo-doo from your yard or neighborhood.

What should you look for in a dog pooper scooper service?

Okay, so what should you actually look for in a pet waste removal service? There are a lot of different services out there, even in Northern Virginia – the problem is, not all animal waste removal services are created equal. So let’s cover the most important things you definitely need to be on the lookout for:

The crew’s cleaning ability

Right, so the most important aspect of a pet cleanup service is, of course – do they actually remove all the poop? You know, are they checking corners and grassy areas? Are they making an effort to clean up super-dried poop that takes a few tries to fully scoop?

To most, asking these many questions seems like a joke, but if you don’t want to deal with hiring and firing and rehiring different scooper companies – just try out our services. At Pet Domestic, we pickup all the poop every time – you won’t have to ask twice.

Poop scooping promptness

Another major thing to consider is how fast will the scooper service arrive? Depending on whether or not the service is actually based in Northern Virginia (like our company), you may either be placed on a waiting list, or left sitting around waiting for them to arrive from outside your local area.

Not only that, but how fast are they picking the poop up? An inexperienced pet waste removal company will take longer than those who have been around the block, so to speak. Within our industry, being familiar with all kinds of dog poop is a bragging right – and we’ve been around tons of it.

Check reviews

Reviews are important for any modern-day brand. It doesn’t matter what service you’re after, you should always check local and online reviews before spending your hard-earned cash.

Our reviews speak for themselves. You can check out our reviews here, but if you want to know more – the numbers don’t lie; with over 400 individual reviews we’ve managed to maintain a 4.9/5 rating overall.

Pricing and cost of service

Legitimate poop scooping businesses will use a pricing model that changes based on your specific needs, like we do. Because each yard and community is unique, you’ll receive a price quote after a short assessment. You should question whether or not a company who has a flat rate can deliver when you need them most, compared to a service that factors your specific needs into their pricing model.

How does our dog poop scooper service work?

Scooping poop may be our bread and butter, but it doesn’t have to be yours. Here’s what our services are all about, starting with residential scooping:

Residential services

Our most common dog poop service is residential scooping. For those looking for a simple backyard poop clean up, this is the service for you. And you may think it sounds fancy – something reserved for the ultra-rich who simply don’t have enough time or energy to pick up poop. In reality, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

This is what our customer base actually looks like:

  • Growing families with conflicting schedules

  • Professionals who work a busy job or at odd hours

  • Customers with medical issues who aren’t able to scoop regularly

  • People who simply don’t enjoy animal waste clean up

The point is, it doesn’t matter who you are or why you want us to scoop – our residential services are perfect for anyone and everyone who prefers not to be a poop cleaner for dogs, and lives in the North Virginia area.

Commercial services and events

Aside from our residential package, you also have the option of booking our commercial scooping services, or scheduling pickups for special and recurring events. Pet waste removal isn’t rocket science – we’ll still be sending out a team to manually sweep and scoop an area.

Our commercial dog waste removal services are perfect for:

  • Dog waste station installation including trash cans, bags, and signs

  • Communal area scooping (apartments, for example)

  • Haul away trash services once full

How we keep your yard clean

When we say we scoop poop, we mean it. If you book with us, you’ll meet real humans who love dogs and other pets and don’t mind cleaning up after them. One of our team members will drive out to your residential or commercial location, scoop up the poop, lock and secure your gates, and haul it all away.

Scheduling a dog poo cleaning

Scheduling with us is easy – just sign up via our form, and you’ll have a response including a quote the same day, or the next. That’s it, really. Picking up after your pups should be easy, and we’ve designed our services to ensure that.

The importance of dog poop cleanup services

Everyone loves dogs – well, not everyone, but we usually don’t associate ourselves with those who dislike them. However, dogs need to use the bathroom just like we do. The problem is, training dogs to use toilets is impractical, which means their waste is left out in the natural world where it can pollute the environment.

Dog poop can ruin your lawn and pose a safety risk

If you pride yourself on a thick green lawn full of grass and bumblebees, you’ll want to avoid leaving piles of poo everywhere. There are plenty of reasons to remove dog poop, and one of the main ones is to avoid having to repair yellow grass on your lawn – which can be caused by both dog pee and poop.

Not only that, but leaving pet waste laying around means a higher chance of dangerous organisms and parasites to spread among blades of grass. For example: the parasite Cystoisospora, which can cause vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, and even death – guess how dogs become infected? Eating poop or hanging out in environments contaminated with feces residue.

The good news is, keeping your dog healthy is easy: simply just remove poop often (or let us do it) and compare how it looks to examples in our dog poop guide.

Environmental issues caused by dog poop

The other big issue with pet waste is that, over time, huge amounts of residential dog waste that isn’t properly disposed of by services like ours ends up washing into streams and rivers when it rains.

Left to bake in the sun for weeks at a time, this tidal wave of dog feces imports whatever nasty parasites are present into your local parks, forests, and lakes. Gross, and a serious environmental threat in places like the United States where millions of dog owners exist.
