Where can one purchase dog poop bags?
Dog poop bags can be purchased from many different stores and retailers. Some examples of stores that sell dog poop bags include PetEdge and Pet Food Direct.
YES. Especially if it's other dogs poop. (we don't know how) but our family dog recently came back from the vet with the news that she has Hookworm. Its 'caught' when one dog with it passes it on to another through poop. It can also be spread if the animal "goes" on live vegetation and your dog smells or eats it. Hope the dog is ok!
Everything that happens has an "effect" on the environment. The wind blowing affects the environment. So does one drop of rain. They all have a tiny effect on the environment. So dog poop does have a (small) effect on the environment. See the related question below: "How does dog poop affect the environment?"
