Doggy Doo DNA? Sioux Falls To Introduce Program
Who knew that what your dog leaves behind on someones yard would one day come back to them. And you!
According to a recent press release a new product being launched this Spring will have canine DNA technology.
Sioux Falls, SD (February 24, 2014) — Apartment residents and property managers can breath a little easier as DooGooders® reaches the crappy milestone of swabbing more than 1,111 dogs for its PooPrints DNA program.
With PooPrints, each dog living at a property provides a DNA sample via a non-invasive, painless cheek swab. Then if a tenant does not do their duty with the doo, a small sample of the waste can be matched with the dog and owner via DNA identification. Properties can then fine tenants who leave the foul feces out and about.
“It’s estimated 40-percent of pet waste remains unscooped and it’s not just a stinky mess for properties, it can also be a health concern,” says Jolene Loetscher, DooGooders Chief Doo Officer. “With the EPA classifying the dog poo problem as crappy as oil and toxic chemicals for water, PooPrints acts like canine CSI to keep our community clean, green and healthy.”
Multi-family communities in Sioux Falls, Brookings and North Sioux City South Dakota, Williston, North Dakota, Sioux City, Iowa and Pipestone and Rochester, Minnesota use PooPrints provided by DooGooders.
Beginning in Spring 2014, DooGooders will launch the direct to consumer product in partnership with PooPrints called iDNA for dog identification by DNA technology.
DooGooders, based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, is the area’s leading dog doo removal service providing poo pick up service for residential and multi-family properties along with being the exclusive regional distributor for PooPrints. Started as a crappy idea in 2007, the DooCrew believes in dooing good with poo and gives a percentage of all sales back to area charities.
