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.

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!

We’ve been in business for more than 40 dog years. And it turns out you can teach an old dog new tricks. DooGooders served more people than ever in 2014, cleaning more than 1600 lawns and collecting DNA from more than 800 dogs. Thanks so much for letting us doo good with poo!  Here’s a quick breakdown of our 2014 service:

Residential Cleanings: 1,642

PooPrints DNA Samples: 830

PooPrints Dog Doo Samples: 296

Total PooPrints stats in the DooGooders territory: 36 properties across 4 states; 1,574 dogs registered

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.

Let’s be honest. Weekly poop scoopin’ works great for your home. But it doesn’t work at apartments. Sure, most tenants pick up after themselves. But there’s always a few who break the rules. And as soon as people see the DooCrew picking up the mess, most stop dooing the right thing and cleaning up after their pup. So you end up paying a lot of money and your grounds don’t get better. They get worse. Finally, we have an answer to the madness by offering PooPrints dog DNA technology. We’re proud to be the only company in the region licensed to offer PooPrints to keep apartment grounds cleaner than ever. And we have more than 300 pups registered in Sioux Falls with Midwest Property Services and Lloyd Companies. Starting at $29.95 per dog, this amazing DNA technology keeps your grounds clean by keeping dog owners responsible for picking up after their best friend. Finally, a way to keep your lawn clean and your costs down. Here’s what tenants and property managers have to say about PooPrints.

At DooGooders, we’re always trying to find ways to doo good with dog poo. Over the last 35 dog years, we’ve been able to doo a lot of good. And we’ve had a lot of fun along the way. And now we’re excited to announce a new way to doo good. While this has nothing to doo with poo, it has everything to doo with the safety of your pooch. Today, we launch DooGooders idna. If your dog is ever lost, we can positively identify him using his DNA. It’s simple. It’s cheap ($34.99). And it’s guaranteed to work. We take a quick, painless cheek swab using something that looks like a Q-Tip. It takes about 20 seconds. We give you a tag with your dog’s DNA number and register your furry friend in the World Pet Registry. If your dog is ever lost or stolen, we can use his DNA to reunite you. Micro-chips can fall out or be removed and tags can get lost. But DNA is forever. And it can’t be faked. To find our how you can protect your dog with DooGooders idna, email scooper@doogooders.com or call 605.951.1176.

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.
