30 Percent Of American Dog Owners Don’t Pick Up After Their Pooch

DULUTH, Ga. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Three out of ten American dog owners are doing a crappy thing – not picking up the pooch’s poop.

That’s the straight poop from a new survey by the Merial animal health products company. Thirty percent say they never pick up after their pooch and 16 percent never even pick up the dog doo in their own yard.

Other doggie doo data collected for the crappy survey....

  • 70 percent of men pick up their dog’s poop compared to 66 percent of women.

  • 80 percent of westerners scoop the poop compared to only 61 percent of southerners.

  • Finally, 83 percent of city dwelling dog owners clean up its mess compared to 51 percent of those in rural areas.
