Anyone who understands the importance of a clean community also knows that the cleanliness to which a community strives for depends largely on how its dogs are taken care of. In other words, if you are serious about keeping your community clean, you are going to need to make sure you use dog waste stations. This will mean that you will need to acquire durable and affordable dog waste stations and place them in locations that will actually help dog owners take care of their dogs. If you're looking for these stations for the first time, you may appreciate a few tips.
The first thing to consider when it comes to dog waste stations is how many you will need. This is obviously going to depend on how many dog owners there are in your community. If you are unsure, then take a walk around the area you are thinking of installing the stations. Figure out roughly how many people are walking dogs. You will also want to think about how many people carry their own dog waste bags. If you are in charge of getting the dog waste stations for your community, inquiring at community locations such as pet stores, vets and pet day cares, will give you a better idea of the numbers needed and how these stations will aid the cleanliness of the community.
Next, you will want to think about the placement of the dog waste stations. You will want to be sure you are placing the stations in areas where you can be sure that dog owners will see them and use them. Ideally, you will want to place the dog waste stations near walkways and other areas where people are allowed to walk their dogs. If there is a park or area where your dogs are NOT allowed, placing a station there is probably not a good idea.
All in all, you can help yourself by using dog waste stations that are clearly marked with big and clearly marked signs. You may also want to consider user friendly/commercial grade dog waste bags.
