As a dog person, you probably think about dog poop more often than your dogless friends. But heres a fun (okay, gross) fact you may have never thought about: The average dog produces three quarters of a pound of waste per day, which is 274 pounds per year. Multiply that by the millions of dogs in the U.S. and thats a lot of poop.
If you want to reduce waste (and help the environment), consider makingÂ an in-ground, pet-waste digester or dog-poop processor, which is actually a pretty easy weekend project. These DIY dog waste compostersÂ divertÂ dog waste from landfills and instead, keep it in your own backyard in an environmentally friendly way. They workÂ similarly to a home septic system, converting the waste to a liquid that leaches out through the subsoil. Hereâs how to make your own at home.

Dog Poop Disposal System
A dog poop disposal system like the Doggie Dooley Waste Disposal System works effectively to dissolve poop, but you do have to collect it first. The poop is scooped into a waste system in the ground and dissolved with added pellets. It’s like a tiny septic tank just for dog poop.
Once the system is placed in the ground in an area with high-draining soil, it can break down the waste of two large dogs once a week. This option is more work than the others on this list, but it’s safe for the environment and non-toxic.Pros
There are products on the market today designed to dissolve dog poop, like Nature’s Pure Edge Yard Odor Eliminator. This product contains zeolite and activated charcoal to quickly reduce poop size up to 80%. Over time, the remaining 20% will dissolve slowly. While it’s working, it absorbs odors. It can also be used as odor control in areas of heavy urine saturation. In addition to lawns, it can be used on concrete, artificial turf, patios, and kennels.
