Have you ever walked into your home only to realize you tracked something in? You pray that it’s just mud, but as you take a closer look, you realize what it actually is: dog poop. Yuck! Now you’re going to have to spend time and money cleaning your carpet in hopes that you’ll eventually get the stain and smell out. Although you could spend all your time outside paranoid about where you’re walking, there’s a simpler solution: dog poop bag dispensers.
Whether you’re a homeowner looking to raise this issue to your HOA community manager or you’re a landlord looking to keep your property clean, Crown Products is here to help. We offer a large variety of dog poop bags in bulk as well as dog poop bag dispensers. In this blog, we’re going to talk about how you can determine the best locations for these dog bag stations.
Take a Look Around
A good way to start would be to simply take a look around. If you don’t already have dog poop bag dispensers on your property, this is a good opportunity to locate the most popular area for dogs to do their business. Checking sidewalks and outside homes or apartments is the most important because this is where most people will be walking, however, don’t forget to check the grass as well, especially in open fields where people will be likely to play with their dog. Be sure to take a closer look too, dog waste can easily be confused with dirt, especially if the lawn has recently been aerated.
Near Trash Cans
Occasionally, you’ll find a dog poop bag dispenser all by itself without a single trash can in sight. This is usually accompanied by an assortment of used dog poop bags because people aren’t willing to put in the effort to find a trash can on the premises. This completely defeats the purpose of having the dog bags and may even make your job more difficult. Fortunately, our pet waste stations come equipped with a built-in trash can, so you won’t have to worry about this. However, if you want some extra waste disposal, you’ll need to place the pet waste station near an existing trash can.
Near The Community Clubhouse
It’s bad enough having homeowners or tenants tracking pet waste into their home, but having them track it into your community clubhouse could be just as bad. Not only do these areas see a lot of foot traffic, but this will likely be the first area potential tenants see. If it’s covered in pet waste, they’re probably going to find some other place to live. Having pet waste stations outside the clubhouse also shows tenants that you’re serious about keeping the community clean.
Spread Them Out
Another thing you should take into consideration is where the dog waste stations are located in relation to other ones around the property. You’re going to want to make sure that no matter where you are on the property, you aren’t far from a station. Otherwise, people may not be willing to go out of their way to find a bag to clean up after their dog.
