Welcome to Pooper Snooper, a project that seeks to empower people to tackle a messy problem.
Dog waste is a significant problem in the UK. There are approximately 8.5 million dogs in the country with roughly 25% of all households currently owning a dog. And with each dog needing to defecate up to 5 times every day that could mean a staggering 42.5 million dog poops per day that need to be dealt with.
Many dog owners are responsible and clean up after their pooch but we all know that too many are not as socially responsible, leading to the pollution of environments that are there for all us to enjoy and share. Not only an inconvenience, dog poo also poses substantial health risks to humans (particularly young children) and to animals including commercially important livestock.
Pooper Snooper lets you highlight the problem of dog fouling wherever you are and puts dog fouling on the map! The app also allows you to record and find the location of bins so that it’s easier than ever to find where to dispose of your doggy deposits.
If you want to know more about this pressing issue, and how we aim to deal with it, check out our article on Medium.
Many exciting features are coming soon to make the app even more useful in the fight against dog fouling, so watch this space!
