Default What to do ...

With the waste products of 3 dogs ... small , medimu and medium-large , and
they all leave piles of poop in the yard . I'm about to drive around the
neighborhood picking up bags of leaves for compost , and wonder if I can add
the dog poop to my pile .

No. Don't add the dog stuff to compost. Keep it separate. It is
useless.

Predator species dung can contain dangerous pathogens. Do not use it on food
crops.

I dunno where they'd get dangerous pathogens , these dogs don't even get
table scraps , just dry dog food . And doesn't a properly maintained compost
heap attain high enough temps to kill most all bacteria ?
I'd just like an alternative to tossing it into the trash can .

If you have a cleanout on your septic line (if you are on city), or even on
septic, make an extension of about 24" up so that you can dump the dog stuff
down the line to either the septic or the city sewage. Sometimes, the
cleanout is in a great spot for this, other times, not. You do not have to
cement it in, just a short extension you can put on and take off and cap
when not in use. OR, if it is in an area where it doesn't look bad, just
leave it sticking up, or even cement it in, and have a removable cap. Build
a cairn around it with rocks or otherwise dress it up.

Google pet waste composters. You'll get plenty of advice.

Well , alrighty then , it seems the general consensus is that I should
compost it , but it's probably not a good idea to use it on the veggies .
I hope the 'ol ladie's roses like dog shit .

Sure, but that's not the issue. If it was you could just leave it spread
around everywhere.

The issue is about concentrating it in your garden.

The "general consensus" is that the waste from carnivores is generally
bad, valueless, and unhealthy. Dig a hole and bury it, or flush it,
and forget it. It is useless and potentially hazardous.
