Video: Dissolving Dog Poop In Your Yard
Here’s the thing you need to be aware of: dog poop doesn’t entirely dissolve. It’ll have remnants. However, the remnants may be so small, you might not have to pick them up. It depends on the level of dissolution as well as the size of the turd itself. Use your own judgment here, and you should be alright.
If you are an environmentalist, then you’re probably wondering if there’s any way to make your dog’s poop a little more environmentally-friendly. Believe it or not, you can potentially compost your dog’s poop. However, there’s a caveat here. In order for your compost to avoid having parasites in it, you need to make sure that the compost’s heat is at least 140 degrees for three days straight.
Even then, the USDA still advises people against using compost made with dog poop for vegetable and fruit gardens. If you choose to go this route with your dung disposal, make sure that the compost you’re making is for landscaping only.

A lot of the methods that are used to dissolve dog poop can have negative effects on lawns, not to mention your flowerbeds.
