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)

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!

 

More properties are signing up for PooPrints by DooGooders. Chief Doo Officer Jolene Loetscher breaks down the numbers.

Becoming a foster parent for a dog is a rewarding experience. It gives you the chance to raise the puppy or dog in a good home temporarily. And sadly gives the shelter more dogs to put into the kennels. There are five steps that you will need to do first before your furry friend enters your home. First step is to make sure that there is nothing the dog can chew on and decide on where he or she will be sleeping. Make sure that there is nothing toxic that the dog can get into.  Second step is to call your local shelter and ask to become part of their foster program. They will have an application for you to fill out. Some shelters might want a fenced in yard or someone to be home at all times for the dog. Most shelters will likely come to your house for a visit. Third step is to meet with the rescue group and let them know what kind of dog you can handle. Also make sure to let the shelter know if you have any other pets in the house. Tell the shelter why you want to be part of a rescue group and let them know what you will get out of it. Fourth step is bringing your dog home. The dog will be scared and confused when he enters your house, so don’t get mad if he has an accident right away. It will take time for the dog to readjust. You will want to focus on training and showering them with love and remember that they are only there for a short period of time. The fifth and last step is to let them go to their new home when they are adopted. It will be hard to let them go, but there will be more dogs that you can rescue.

Those are the steps to successfuly become a foster parent for a dog. Shelters need as many helpers that they can get! Go out and save a dog’s life today!

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.

In this edition of the DooGooders Training Scoop, learn how to tell if your dog is a righty or a lefty.  This is interesting and important to know when you’re thinking about training your dog.  It can also be a fun fact to know about your furry friend.  Stay tuned to doogooders.com for future editions of the Training Scoop, and don’t forget to spay or neuter your pet, and always Doo Good!

We’re getting ready for Spring at DooGooders!  We’re currently only doing pick-ups as needed, but as soon as that snow melts, we’ll be back for regular service.  Once again, we’ll be offering a Spring Clean package for just $34.99.  We don’t care how many dogs you have.  That low price is the same for everybody, unless you live on an acreage.  If you’d like to pre-pay for a Spring Clean we’ll give you $3 off.  (offer expires March 1, 2010)  Just e-mail scooper@doogooders.com to get on the waiting list.

You may have heard us on the radio talking about our rejected ads.  Well, we knew it was a long shot, but we had Pile the DooGooders Spokesdog write some new jingles to promote poo pick-up.  Turns out his doo diddys don’t make the grade.  We videotaped his late night jam session, and we’ll show you the rejected ads throughout the year.  Here’s the first of several.

We hope you enjoy Pile as much as we doo!  Here’s to melting snow, and maybe an early Spring!
