Our domestic dogs are our best friends and partners in life. As wild dogs they would have had a minimal impact on the earth, like our own ancient ancestors. When dogs and humans first befriended each other, they would have shared what they hunted, and produced very little waste. In our current world, though, both dogs and humans produce a lot of waste. While we try to reduce, reuse, and recycle, when it comes to our dog’s poop, we have very few options.
