PooPrints - Making Sure Dog Owners Clean Up

PooPrints - Making Sure Dog Owners Clean Up DogsizedIsn't it so annoying when you come across dog poop on the ground that hasn't been picked up by the dog owner. It gives all of us dog owners a bad reputation. We've even been blamed by a person on the street for not picking up dog poop when it didn't come from our own dog (not to mention there's no way our 18 lb dog could have made such a huge poop).

Well PooPrints by BioPet Vet Lab has come up with a DNA test to determine who left that poop behind and send them a fine. It's a new twist on that article you might have read about in 2013: "Town Mails Dog Poop Back To Negligent Owners In Spain".

How Does it Work?

PooPrints - Making Sure Dog Owners Clean Up DogsizedThe PooPrints sends swabs to be swiped inside of mouth of every dog using the public green space. The swab collects the DNA of the dog and is then sent back to the PooPrints labs where a record of the dog it belongs to is kept in the DNA World Pet Registry.

If park keepers find dog waste left behind, they can send a sample to PooPrints which will test it and match it to a swab. “The DNA is extracted from the dog waste and matches are run every day to find out who the ‘poop-eterators’ are,” explained Mike Stone, a distributor for PooPrints. The cost of the test runs around $75 and is usually passed along to the pet owner in the form of a fine.

Typically the cost of the swabs and registration of the dog, is paid for by the dog owners who are using the dog park in the form of a membership or other fee. PooPrints already serves around 900 residential communities nationwide.

PooPrints by BioPet Vet Lab is an eco-friendly DNA dog waste management program for apartment, condominium and HOA management. PooPrints was invented at BioPet Vet Lab to help keep managed communities and parks clean and green. BioPet has been a full service canine genetic research laboratory since 2008, dedicated to animal health.
