Life in a small town is about giving back

Living in a small community, we often come together to support those around us.

On Aug. 17, my son, Macin (far left), along with his buddies, Logan Nagle, Zach Shackleford and Grady Whitacre, participated in the Jason Rodak 3 V 3 Hoopfest Tournament in LaGrange, Ohio – our hometown. The tournament is in honor of Jason, who was a 1995 Keystone High School graduate, who LOVED all things basketball – he honestly lived basketball. But, sadly, in 1999 he died from cancer of the bones. His Keystone friends NEVER wanted to forget their classmate, so in August 2000, the first basketball tournament, sponsored by the KATS Organziation, was held. And ever since then, it has grown. Students and adults from communities surrounding Keystone-LaGrange head to The Depot at Union Station every August to play in memory of Jason.

This year, I decided to sponsor my son’s team — but this blog isn’t about the sponsorship. It’s about having a group of friends play together for someone they didn’t even know. But, what they do know is Keystone comes together to support each other. And on the afternoon of Aug. 17, they too played their hearts out like Jason did all those years ago.


Woof-Stock Dog Days of Summer

Yesterday, I did something NEW! I participated in the “Woof-Stock” Dog Days of Summer at Pandy’s Garden Center in Elyria. The idea behind the event was to raise funds for a local pet shelter, Storm’s Angels. I had a wonderful day meeting new people, and meeting their K9 companions too! Thank you all who came out and met me, and supported “Woof-Stock” Dog Days of Summer!

Why hire a pooper scooper?

If you are like most dog owners, you are finally seeing what was underneath the inches of snow and ice … dog waste!doggies

And yes, there is a lot of it now!

There are a lot of situations that prevent dog-owners from cleaning up their own yards after the snow melts. For some, it’s just an overwhelming sight to see all the poo collecting on the grass; and they may feel they will never have time to clean it all up. Between work, family and extra events, some families don’t get home until after dark. But we at Dog Gone Poop Patrol can clean your yard in the daylight hours!

Some dog-owners simply cannot clean up their own yards due to medical reasons. Maybe they cannot withstand being out in the cold for minutes at a time or maybe they cannot bend over due to back problems. Or maybe, the smell is just too much. That is understandable. Everyone deserves to have a pet to love; and if the sight or smell of the dog poo is too much, we can help!

Give us a call today (440) 610-6837 — because everyone needs a little help now and then!

Preparing your pets for frigid temps

Well my Ohio Friends and Animal Lovers – as much as we wished the mild-December weather would have remained with us for the duration of the winter, it appears as if Mother Nature was in the mood to shake things up for us! loving on dogs

With that being said, extreme frigid temperatures are expected to roll into Ohio late Tuesday through early Friday – depending on where you live. Weather forecasters are calling for temperatures reaching into the -20s by the time the “deep freeze” is over.

So, what does that mean for pets? It means they will need extra care and attention this week. Dogs cannot be left out very long – even though they may want to sniff and explore. If left out too long, they will begin to shiver, whine and hold their paws up when they are cold. But, we all know they will want to head outside to do their business, so it’s important to wipe their paws when they come in — it removes any salt residue and gets their paws warmed up.

Our furry friends are going to need their “parents” this week to make sure they are kept safe and warm!

And don’t worry, after the DEEP FREEZE we will be here to help make your yard safe and happy once again!

The TRUTH about poo …

Did you know …?                                                                      the truth about poo

As a pooper scooper, my job isn’t just to clean yards – it’s to make them SAFE for everyone!

Some people believe dog poop is a fertilizer, but it’s far from the truth. In fact, the truth is, dog poop, as well as other animal feces carries bacteria and parasites that can actually be HARMFUL to humans and other animals who walk/run/play in the same space.

And while it may take up to a YEAR for dog waste to degrade completely – and the feces may no longer be visible to the naked eye – eggs from parasites can linger for years in the soil.

We at Dog Gone Poop Patrol are here to take care of your hard and make it safe for everyone by treating the yard.

Why do I poop scoop?

Hello Furry Friend Followers!promo cari padin

Today was a bit of an exciting day; and I am so happy to share my news with you all!

Earlier today, Peggy Karolak, of State Farm Insurance, introduced Dog Gone Poop Patrol on her Facebook page!

So, I thought this would be the perfect way to let all of my FUTURE customers know a bit about me …

First off, I have been in the “poop scooping” business for about two years. And while I am located in Southern Lorain County, my customers are in not only Lorain and Medina counties, but in Akron, Cuyahoga Falls, Wooster and other places.

But what got me into the poop scooping business?

The reality is a few years ago, I was laid off and needed a way to help support my family – a husband, three sons, three furry dogs and one fluffy cat! A friend of mine from college convinced me to start my own business in the poo industry. I thought to myself, “Why not, I am picking it up daily anyways!”

I firmly believe that when one doors closes, another one opens. Gone are the days of me working in an office – the outside is my office now; and I love it! I get to spend time with not only my pets, but my Furry Friends too!

So, if you are tired of scooping up poop, give me a call at 440-610-6837!
