The weather is starting to turn cooler here in Northern Wisconsin, which means I have to be extra diligent about yard cleanup so springtime doesn’t end up being a yard nightmare. I keep the yard as clean as possible to help prevent spread of disease, help curb coprophagia (feces eating) and to keep my companions happy. Dogs are much happier in a clean environment.
As the “pick up servant “of a giant breed, I always have a lot to clean up. Having had three Newfoundlands at one time, plus multiple Newf visitors, I know how easy it is to let the backyard poop patrol get out of hand. That’s why I found the Clean Response Swivel Bin & Rake such a convenience.
While I do have a Doggie Dooley Digester, which helps break down waste, I still was having a problem bending and “catching” the piles to carry them over to the Digester. All that bending and stretching is definitely not as easy as it used to be!
The Swivel Bind & Rake System makes the job so much easier. The rake is extra sturdy for any sized pile, it can hold a lot, and the bin swivels shuts as soon as I lift it off the ground, so I can safely carry it away to my digester or whatever waste container I’m using – without dropping anything. I have even tried it on in the driveway with a regular plastic grocery bag and it’s amazing how easy it is to place the bag, then remove it to throw in the garbage!
I won’t say that cleanup is a joy or anything, but it is our lot, as caretakers of these wonderful creatures (of any size)!
