When you Walk your Dog

Make sure you always have a bag with you to scoop the poop!

Did you know there are 23 million coliform bacteria per gram of dog poop?

Pet poop that is left in yards, fields, parks and on sidewalks eventually ends up in Yellowknife rivers and lakes. Dog waste is high in nitrogen and phosphorus which promotes algae growth in ponds and streams. It also can contain Giardia, Parvo, Tapeworms, Roundworms, Salmonella and Coccidia which can linger in soil for years.

Be a responsible dog owner. Scoop the Poop! Keep our community healthy and clean.
