Should You "Waste" Your Time
There's usually money to be made when you're willing to do a task that others hate to do and someone has to remove those yucky "canine calling cards" from yards, dog shows, dog parks, dog kennels, dog runs, apartment complexes and parks. As a Super Duper Scooper Pooper (not a bad business name, by the way!) you'll do just that; perform animal waste removal for clients (or "scoop poop", as it's commonly referred to.)
What a Scooper Pooper Business Involves:
You'll visit customer's yards or properties on a weekly or monthly basis and collect feces from the yard. You'll usually charge by the visit, but frequency, size of yard and number of dogs factors into the price you charge, too. How you dispose of the poop you've scooped may be regulated by city laws; be sure to check your local regulations regarding waste removal. You may be able to bag the poop and simply place it in a trash can, or take the waste to a local landfill.
Knowledge or Skills Required:
Ummmm... I haven't seen any college courses on "How to Scoop Poop", so as long as you have basic business sense and are reliable and thorough, you ought to do okay!
