Screen Shot 2014-02-23 at 9.30.59 PMApartment residents and property managers can breath a little easier as DooGooders® reaches the crappy milestone of swabbing more than 1,111 dogs for its PooPrints DNA program.

With PooPrints, each dog living at a property provides a DNA sample via a non-invasive, painless cheek swab. Then if a tenant does not do their duty with the doo, a small sample of the waste can be matched with the dog and owner via DNA identification. Properties can then fine tenants who leave the foul feces out and about.

“It’s estimated 40-percent of pet waste remains unscooped and it’s not just a stinky mess for properties, it can also be a health concern,” says Jolene Loetscher, DooGooders Chief Doo Officer. “With the EPA classifying the dog poo problem as crappy as oil and toxic chemicals for water, PooPrints acts like canine CSI to keep our community clean, green and healthy.”

Multi-family communities in Sioux Falls, Brookings and North Sioux City South Dakota, Williston, North Dakota, Sioux City, Iowa and Pipestone and Rochester, Minnesota use PooPrints provided by DooGooders.

Beginning in Spring 2014, DooGooders will launch the direct to consumer product in partnership with PooPrints called iDNA for dog identification by DNA technology.
