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 DNA Swab: $39.95 (current: $34.95)

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

Dog Doo DNA Fail: $15.00 (no change)

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

Waste Station: $165.00 (no change)

Case of Dog Doo Bags: $49.95 (no change)

Skid of Dog Doo Bags (88 cases): $35.00/case ($10.00/case savings)

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!

When the South Dakota Multi-Housing Association asked us to join them for a night to celebrate the accomplishments of our fellow members, and that Chef Dominique was catering, we told them they were barking up the right tree. The annual Walk of Stars gala recognized several outstanding property managers and maintenance pros in our area, and the DooCrew was honored with an award for outstanding service! How cool is that? We think it was pretty awesome!

We are lucky to serve such smart and fun people, and look forward to taking crap from clients around the region for years to come!

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.

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.

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.

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.

 

 

 

 

Yesterday we had a fantastic lunch meeting with Mandy Sieck-Vavreck with Puppy Love Bakery in Sioux Falls, SD. Mandy and her husband just started the bakery, and it’s a must see. They make up all sorts of awesome treats for your best friend, and it is all natural. Mandy tells us she wouldn’t bake anything that she’s not comfortable eating herself. We’re very excited to announce that Mandy has agreed to be a guest blogger for DooGooders! Each month, we’ll learn about natural foods for fido and how to keep your pooch healthy. Puppy Love Bakery has a great story to share, they love dogs, and we wish them success in Sioux Falls!

DooGooders is excited to announce that we’ll be open all winter! Routes that used to be on Tuesday move to Wednesday, and Friday routes move to Sunday. Next Spring, we’ll go back to normal schedules. To order service, simply go to the store and pay online, or email scooper@doogooders.com.

Looking for a great gift for a dog lover? Buy Doo Dollars! We sell them in $20 increments, and can be used for service in 2011.

Thanks again for everything!
