Default dog loo in the garden

does anyone have one of those dog loos that you sink into the ground in
their garden? Are they any good?

Does anyone have any other suggestions for disposing of the doggy-doings?

TIA

Pam.

That's what I used to do but I've put up a new fence which is higher than
the last ;-)

My landlord, years ago, had one of the first. worked reasonably well.
If animals knocked the lid off it stank a bit.

The ground around that area wasn't much use for gardening, ISTR that the
nettles grew very well
but we tried other deep rooted plants.

It's one of the best ways of disposing of the poop when you scoop.

I tried one but my Newfoundland and Retriever make so much poo that it was
quickly overloaded. Now I just dig a hole and layer it with dog poo and
grass clippings. When it's half full I put some soil back and start
elsewhere.

Simple idea, ideal solution, so why didn't I think of that? I've got one
small elderly dog - I wonder if I could put the stuff & clippings in a
bucket and then dig that in when full.....!

Thanks Peter.

Keep the dog crap as a weather indicator. Humans can instantly tell when
spring has arrived by the appearance of dog shit on lawns in suburbia. Works
really well in areas of heavy snowfall. You could freeze the dog exhaust and
sell it to farmers like myself. Acts as a deer repellent as the deer think
wolves are about. Effectiveness depends on the dog's diet.

I've had one in my garden for sixteen years, and it has done the trick,
provided I remember to follow the weekly maintenance instructions. That's
one large dog's worth over that period, with small gaps between dogs.
