Starting a Pooper Scooper Business—A Step-By-Step Guide

Starting a Pooper Scooper Business—A Step-By-Step Guide

Statistics show that the pet industry is booming. According to the APPMA (American Pet Products Manufacturers Association) there are pets in over 69 million homes in the U.S. and pet owners spent more than 2.7 billion dollars on pet services alone last year.

A professional pooper scooper business is a pet service that is becoming more and more popular as busy dog owners have a difficult time keeping up with the unpleasant chore of cleaning up after their dog. The low start-up cost gives anyone who wishes to become a part of the pet service industry an opportunity to start a profitable business of their own.

I am the former owner of a successful pooper scooper service called The Scoop on Poop, Dog Waste Removal Service. While keeping my regular job, I was able to run this business on a part-time basis and by the end of my first year, had 80 regular customers and a number of employees working for me. I learned a great deal throughout the course of running The Scoop on Poop and realized that decisions made early in the setup process had a significant effect on the business as a whole.

If you are thinking of starting a pooper scooper business, there will be many things to consider besides cleaning up dog poop from your customers’ yards. Some of these things are: vehicle preparation, your geographical coverage area, waste disposal, pricing and scooping frequencies, marketing, customer invoicing and payment, route planning and the various tools and techniques required to scoop up the poop effectively. Weather also plays a big part in running a professional pooper scooper service.
