Default Dog Poop Septic Tank

Has anyone ever used one of those dog poop septic tanks? It seems that you can either buy one on-line, or go the DIY route, using an old trash can or 5 gal bucket. We have a fairly small yard at the lake and with 3 large goldens....well, you get the picture....

In trying to find a better solution, I recently learned of these dog poop septic systems, and was wondering if they really work.

Thanks!

With 4 large dogs we can fill a 5 gallon bucket easily in a week. It would need to be a big one for my crew. We used to use a 5 gallon bucket with trash bags, when full I tie them up and toss in my dumpster at work. Now we use a scooper service once a week. Once we move up here permanently in September we will need a new plan.

How do kennels, shelters, etc deal with this? Dumpster and landfill?

This just doesn't seem like a good idea to me. Probably regulated, you don't say if you have a well either .

I just looked quickly at these Dog poop Septic Tanks, I think that installation is key to get it to work correctly... How well they work who knows.... Personally I walk the dogs three times a day into the woods, while at the lake....

Personally, if I where going to try this, I would go the root of the 5 gallon buck DYI.... and see how it works.... if it works well, then maybe spend the bucks on the real deal....

I did see another device on Chewy.com, that will allow you to put the poop into your septic tank, and then flush with a little water... that may also work ....

Overall Dog Poop is a stinky subject, but you have to deal with it...

Sounds like an awful idea. What could go wrong? Suggest staying with the DIY route. In the summer, head to the transfer station more often.

For the last 30 years I just bury it. Why would some put poop in a plastic bag then a second plastic bag. Hangs around for 600 years! Dig a small hole and roll it in. Gone in a week
