DooGooders PooPrints Map 0116

2015 was a huge growth year as the DooCrew marked more territory and expanded our PooPrints by DooGooders service. We’re the exclusive PooPrints distributor for the territory above. If you see our logo on or near your city, we are likely the distributor for you. And if we can’t help you, we are happy to point you to the eager PooPrints representative for your area.

With more than 3,000 registered dogs, DooGooders serves more than 100 properties in six states and is the authorized PooPrints distirbutor for South Dakota, Western North Dakota, extreme Southwest Minnesota, Sioux City, IA and parts of Wyoming and Montana.

We love dealing with crap, no matter where it is! If you’re interested in learning more about PooPrints by DooGooders, just email scooper@doogooders.com!

2015 PooPrints Review

The DooCrew took more crap than ever in 2015! Some highlights include picking up more than 1,600 residential lawns for the second year in a row. We also got rid of #2 problems with dog DNA and PooPrints. We registered more than 1,000 dogs from apartments across five states, bringing the total number of dogs registered in PooPrints by DooGooders to more than 3,000!

In 2015, we processed 456 dog doo DNA samples. 265 were successfully matched to a dog. 165 samples started as a no-match, but 28 of those samples were eventually matched to the right dog once property managers were able to find the culprits and get them registered. The majority of poopertrators came from four properties, which usually indicates tenants hiding dogs and avoiding registration. 52 tests (11%) failed doo to insufficient DNA in the sample.

In the case of no-matches and failed samples, we can help! PooPrints scientists can help identify dogs hiding on the property and can talk you through the sample process. Last month a property in North Dakota turned six no-matches into matches by finding the stinker and getting him registered into the WPR. To get scientific help, just email scooper@doogooders.com.

Thanks as always for letting us doo good with dog poo!

The next time you’re walking your best friend around downtown Sioux Falls it’ll be easier to take care of your dog doo. DooGooders teamed up with Downtown Sioux Falls, Inc. and Jans Corporation to install five dog doo drop-off stations. Help yourself to oxo-biodegradable bags from PooPrints, leave them at one of our stations and help us continue to doo good with poo!

You can read more about the dog doo project here.

The dog doo stations are marked with a dog paw on the map below.

Chief Doo Officer Jolene Loetscher has been busy talking crap around our region recently. Jolene spoke at Entrepology in Sioux City, a cool event that plants entrepreneurs from one city into another. She also spoke at 1 Million Cups Sioux Falls the next day. It’s pretty sweet to meet new people and see all the cool stuff happening in our region.

A big thank you to Think 29 for also featuring our terrific turd talker in a recent blog post. It’s always a great day to talk about dooing good with poo.

Welcome to Spot’s Spotlight where DooGooders features a family so you can learn more about our best friends.

Cooper C. & Scout

Cooper C. & Scout

DooCrew Note: When it comes to boy’s best friend, Cooper and Scout might just be two of the best buddies you’ll ever meet! And while it didn’t make the editorial cut, Scout’s got a pretty crappy story he can share about a day he didn’t feel too good in the car! But we’ll leave that for you to ask Cooper and Scout if you meet them in person because it involves some heavy doo-ty cleaning even the DooCrew can’t doo!

Name: Scout

Age: 9 years

Gender: Female

Owner: Cooper Cornette, Sioux Falls, SD

Breed: Lab mix

Favorite treat: Beef Jerky

Favorite toy: The Chicken

Funniest habit: When she gets excited, she hides her head under the couch.

Thing Scout loves the most: Picking Cooper up from school.

Thing Scout dislikes the most: Cats

How Scout joined your family: She came from a rescue in Missouri.

If they had a million dollars,  Scout would: Cooper says Scout would give him the money so he could buy toys.

Favorite story about your pup: She was laying upside down in a chair and almost choked to death because she didn’t think to turn over. No self-preservation skills…

The DooCrew is using PooPrints dog doo dna technology to keep Dakota Ridge Apartments in Williston, North Dakota free of dog poop. We had a great time learning about Boomtown, USA. The construction happening in the area is incredible and it was exciting to see all that’s going on. Here’s a little clip from our adventure through the new Wild West.

The American Red Cross makes keeping your furry family members healthy even easier with a new Pet First Aid App. You can learn more and download here.

Also, the Sioux Empire Red Cross will be holding a Dog & Cat First Aid Class on March 29, 2014 9am-1pm in Sioux Falls. This is a chance to keep you pooch safe at a discounted rate. Normally $85, the class is just $70. DooGooders will be covering a portion of the registration. Size is limited, so we doo hope you sign up now!

For the first time in more than 40 (dog) years in business, we are going to raise our service prices for our weekly and twice-weekly customers by 50 cents per week. This was a tough decision for the DooCrew, but we have to doo this because of the constant rise in fuel prices. In January 2009, the average price of gas was $1.78/gallon. Today, the average price is $3.64/gallon. DooGooders has made several cost-cutting moves over the years to help keep our prices low. But as you know, it’s getting doggone expensive to drive. This new price will go into effect on April 1, 2013. We hope you understand the need for the new rates, and we promise to give you the same level of service since we began scooping poop in 2008!
