DooGooders has been doing good with poo for more than 55 dog years. And we are committed to being the price leader in our crappy industry. Since 2008, we’ve only raised our weekly residential prices once and our PooPrints prices twice. As our expenses increased the past few years, we’ve decided it’s time to make a modest price adjustment to some of our products and services.

While we feel these changes are small, we respect that you need to budget. Because of that, these changes won’t go into effect until July  1, 2016. We’ve listed the price adjustments below. If you have any questions or concerns, please email the DooCrew at scooper@doogooders.com.

Residential Service – July 1, 2016

Twice/Week: $10.49 (current: $10.24)

Weekly: $12.99 (current: $12.49)

Every Other Week: $19.49 (current: $18.99)

Commercial Cleaning: $45.00/hour (no change)

PooPrints by DooGooders Commercial Service – July 1, 2016

Dog Doo DNA Match, No-Match: $59.95 (current: $54.95)

Five Bottle Waste Sample Kit: $65.00 (current: $60.00)

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 DooCrew is hitting the road this summer to check in on many of our PooPrints by DooGooders properties. We hope to have some fun lunches with property managers, share crappy stories and see how the program is going in your area.

Not afraid to talk sh*t (literally), live in the Sioux Falls area and interested in sales… then get your poop in a group and drop us a line at scooper@doogooders.com to learn more about a part-time opportunity with the DooCrew.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We just wrapped up one of the more memorable weeks in DooGooders history – spending several days at the PooPrints lab in Knoxville, Tennessee. PooPrints uses DNA technology to keep apartment and condo lawns looking good as new and free of doo! The process is surprisingly simple (well, unless you’re the scientist doo-ing the tests) and extremely affordable. During our time in Knoxville, we learned all the ins and outs of this awesome new technology. It all starts by taking an easy and painless cheek swab.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here you see Mattie – who helps train the new PooPrints distributors like us – volunteering to have her cheek swabbed for probably the 100th time! She’s a great sport!

The PooPrints scientists then process the swab for DNA. So at that point – our work is done.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If a property manager finds doo on the grounds they simply take a sample and send it back to lab, where once again the scientist does the dirty work, matching the doo to the dog. Once we have that info, we alert the property manager who typically levies a fine against the tenant who failed to pick up after their best friend. We talked to residents and property managers in Knoxville who absolutely love this service.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Adam Chavira with Legends at Oak Grove (pictured here) says his grounds went from nasty to spotless within a week of using PooPrints. The price is right, too. The initial DNA collection costs just $34.99. And each dog doo sample costs $44.99 to process. Most property managers simply pass those costs on to the tenant who own dogs – and many fine tenants $100 or more for not picking up their dogs mess. So they’re able to make some extra money for the enforcement. Legends at Oak Grove uses that extra cash to make their property even more pet friendly. They’re actually putting in a dog spa for the pet owners!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The fine folks in Knoxville aren’t the only ones enjoying this new service. PooPrints is available around the country, from Miami to Washington – and of course – in Sioux Falls! Midwest Property Services is having great success with PooPrints. We also just added a Lloyd Companies property – who also loves PooPrints! They’ve found just one rouge dog doo on their property this month. All thanks to dog DNA!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We know this is a new way to doo dog poo – so if you have any questions just fire an e-mail to doologist@doogooders.com – and we’ll be happy to answer any questions. We’ll be posting videos from our trip soon – so stay tuned!

PooPrints swabs a pooch for DNA

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dog poop is one of the biggest problems for people who live in apartments, condos and town homes. After more than 30 dog years in business we’re excited to have the answer to this age-old poo problem. DooGooders™ is now the exclusive distributor in our region for PooPrints™, a dog DNA service that allows us to tell property managers exactly which dog owner in their complex didn’t pick up what they dropped off. PooPrints effectively cleaned up properties in Sioux Falls and across the country because tenants can finally be held accountable for picking up after their pooch. In the coming weeks we’ll tell you more about this one of a kind service, take you into the DNA lab in Tennessee, and show you how we continue to doo good with dog poo.
