Dog Poop Is Totally Harmless to the Environment

Dog poop is not harmless to the environment, and leaving large quantities of it on the grass or dirt outside can actually be harmful to the environment, other animals, and of course people. When dog poop is left on the ground, it can seep into the soil and contaminate groundwater. And if your dog poop washes into a river or storm drain? That’s just an even bigger environmental problem.
