How can I compost my dog doo?

Asked by Bucky Winters

Is there are real way to compost the waste without having a pile of waste stinking up my yard? I have an average urban backyard not a farm.


Most local pet supply stores sell an in ground dog waste system, better known as a dog waste septic system.

One manufacturer is call Doggy Dooley.

  • The dog waste is deposited into the system where you add water and a digester suppliment which breaks down and liquifies the dog waste.
  • The liquid is then obsorbed into the soil.
  • No mess no smell.

Purchase the unit based on the size and number of your dogs. You can also find it on
