PooPrints uses dog DNA to catch pet owners who don’t clean up.
Some pet owner is the U.S. who failed to clean up after their dogs got a nasty surprise from apartment complex manager Deb Logan. Logan started fining the irresponsible dog owners $100 per offense using DNA evidence.
Logan, property manager at Twin Ponds in Nashua, New Hampshire, started using a dog DNA-testing system to reveal which pooches were leaving feces scattered about outside. Logan says the DNA technology called “PooPrints” , developed by BioPet Vet Labs of Knoxville , Tennessee, is working “amazingly” well for Twin Ponds, a 339-unit complex, home to about 241 dogs.
“And for a property manager to not have to guess who the violator is, is absolutely wonderful,” she said. Dogfriendly Twin Ponds is Bio-Pet’s largest client using Poo-Prints to solve the mystery of who left the offending mound. Using doggie DNA to solve the puzzle which dog left the feces is becoming increasingly popular nationwide , with violators being fined up to $1,000 per steaming pile.
