Property managers are getting fed up with irresponsible dog owners who do not pick up their dog’s poop on the property. A New Hampshire apartment community is requiring residents to hand over a DNA sample for their pet. These property managers collect a mouth swab from the dog and then when poop is left on the property, they can check it against their samples using PooPrints.
“The tests bought through PooPrints, a subsidiary of BioPet Vet Lab in Knoxville, Tennessee, match the DNA already captured to a sample of each pet’s waste. Poop that isn’t scooped can then be analyzed.”
Managers believe the problem is getting worse and they want to create a clean and nice environment for their residents. If offenders are caught leaving their dog’s waste on the property they may receive a warning the first time and have to pay the $60 lab fee. However, if residents continue to neglect to pick up their pet’s waste, it could result in a lease violation and potential eviction.
What do you think about using a PooPrints policy in your community?
