    LOL I love this post. One of my dogs are a super-duper-pooper too!

    Luckily, we have community doggie disposal bins and baggies on every corner, so I just pick it up in the baggie and drop it at the nearest bin! They clear them out every day (thank goodness!!).

    If he has an accident, I totally flush it. No way am I putting that much poo in my trash can.

    I pick up our German Shepherds poo in the doogie doodie bag and just toss it in the garbage receptacle in the garage. Layering bags help with the smell. Flushing is interesting, but you his poos would totally clog the toilet!

    Our maltese poops on a pad so I just pick it up with toilet paper and flush it.

    Well, I voted a few different options. We HAVE flushed their #2 before, like when they have an accident in the house (this is an issue when we have company over, they get too excited to make it outside, yeah, lol).

    Generally though, we pick it up and put it in our outside trashcan. We’ll leave it there if it’s not in a path, meaning if they go near the bushes. *Note: We live in our own house, so there’s no public bins or people to step in it. Lol

    We have two small dogs, we leave it in the yard.  I have tried to pick it up, but usually the coons have eaten it before I even get there.  So why pick it up if the coons are just going to eat it anyway.

    Hahaha “Nothing….we leave it in a public area and laugh when people step in it“!  I lol’d.

    We don’t have a dog, but when Fiance and I walk his dad’s dog, we throw the poo in a public trashcan (there’s a park nearby their house).

    @tksjewelry:  oh wow!  they eat poo??  wish we had some to take care of it.

    I scoop my dogs poo up off the yard every so often and just toss it in the brush.  I’m hoping I can train him to poo in a very specific area soon an just section that off so I dont have to deal with it at all anymore.

    I pick up with bag, bag it and in the trash can it goes.  I live in a very busy neighborhood and not everyone picks up and it drives me nuts.  If we’re walking around the Capitol or on the Mall when he goes, in the public cans it goes.  

    At my parents it’s the pick up and flush method.  Not entirely sure why, but it’s what we’ve done for a while now.

    Double bag, and outside trash bin…or public dumpster/bin if we are out somewhere.

    @pinkshoes: No you don’t want coons.  They ate our insulation too and can be very dangerous.  Which is why we keep a high powered pellet gun at our door, not for intruders, but for critters.

    I voted “nothing, we leave it in our yard”.

    I have small dogs, so they have small poos. And I raw-feed, so poos are not an issue, raw-fed dog poo crumbles and disappears within days.

    I also live in an apartment, and I have a chihuahua. There are these things called DoggyPots around the complex that have little dog poo pickup bags and an attached trashcan to throw it away in. If I’m over near the DoggyPot, I’ll throw it away in there, but usually the place he likes to go is over near the complex’s dumpster, so I’ll just throw it in there. We never bring it inside.

    We have a 135 pound dog, so I completely understand the massive poo issue.  We take our dog for a “walk” out back in the woods behind our house (on our own property) so we just leave the poos there and the rain takes care of it. When we go camping, to the beach, or somewhere public however, we double or even triple wrap the poos in plastic supermarket bags and throw it away in public trash receptacles.

      @tksjewelry: I had no idea they ate poops!
