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.

You can read more about our trip to the PooPrints lab in Knoxville, TN here.

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.
