As the weather begins to get nicer in the Bozeman area, the snow starts to melt, the birds began to chirp, and tiny little landmines are exposed little by little.

Of course, we are talking about dog poop. After months of tightly coiled poop piles lying dormant under the snow, a bitter dose of reality sets in for dog owners.

Let's be honest, no one likes picking up dog poop. It is a task that is often put off as long as possible. But when spring hits, it's go time, and it's something that can no longer be avoided.

There are a few different options when it comes to taking care of your doo-doo duty. In the Bozeman area, there are some businesses that will actually do your dirty work for you, such as Pooperman Dog Waste Removal and Dootie Calls.

If this isn't something you want to spend money on, that's understandable. After all, it's just dog poop. Never the less, it's a chore that you simply can't ignore. You don't want to invite people over for a BBQ, and have them leave with more than they bargained for.

So, just know, as you are faced with the daunting task of picking up months worth of dog poop, there are many people all across the Gallatin Valley that are grabbing the shovel by the handle, digging in, and dealing with piles and piles of dog dookie. The struggle is real!
