* Dog poop is not a natural fertiliser. Dog food is dense and nutrient rich (unlike plant eaters’ food), and dog poop has excessive amounts of phosphorus and nitrogen, causing imbalances.
* Dog poop carries bacteria, viruses and other pathogens that may be harmful to the environment and humans.
* Stepping in dog poop really spoils your day.
* After rain the poop contaminates watercourses.
