Is there a way this unit can work in a clay type soil..could we dig a larger hole and surround with pea stone or sand?
Answer by ChewyMay 24, 2018
Performing a "Perk Test" will prove beneficial in deciding whether a Doggie Dooley will be effective in your yard.1. Dig a hole approximately 1 foot wide by 2 feet deep. (Test hole can be smaller than real hole.)2. Pour approximately 5 gallons of water in the hole.​3. Check the hole in 24 hours. If water is completely drained, you have fairly sandy soil and a pyramid style Doggie Dooley is recommended. If there is still standing water, check again after 48 hours.4. If the water is gone, you can use either the tank or pyramid styles of Doggie Dooley. If after 48 total hours there is still standing water in the hole, a Doggie Dooley will not be an effective waste management system in that location of your yard. Test another site!

Can this device be placed in a flood irrigation area without the contents being washed out of the device?

Does this unit come with the enzyme tablets to start off?
Answer by ChewyMar 01, 2018
Each unit comes packed with a starter pack of 12 tablets.

Is this also good for feline waste?
Answer by ChewyOct 29, 2021
The Doggie Dooley systems are not designed to be used with cat waste as you would not be able to deposit any sort of litter. In a small enclosed area, even the biodegradable kind does not break down fast enough to avoid creating an issue with the drainage. Unfortunately, at this time they do not have a system designed for use with cat waste.

Perfect for two large dogs!

Digging deep "Poop Chute" was the greatest challenge. I had to use a long gad tool to build up a loose pile of dirt to grab with posthole digger. Got it so deep that my water drains down rather quickly. Once a week: Fill with water & add one tablet Everyday: Add Poooo

It's a lid

Call dig safe first. You'll need to dig a deep narrow hole. My hole ended up a bit wider than called for, but the Dooley fit snuggly in. I built a 1/2" diameter PVC pipe frame for the Dooley. I used most of three 10' 1/2" pvc pipes, eight corner pieces, and four T connectors. If I went back I would drill holes in the frame facing into the hole and hook the hose right up to the frame. Water plays a major role in how the system works. A lot depends on the soil you are working with. This product is basically a lid for a hole you dig. I do like that I can open it with my foot. And it is a great solution for the massive amount of poo my dogs create.

Great product, just didn't work for me

I thought this would be better than the model with the metal tank, nothing to rust out over time. When it arrived I realized that unlike the galvanized metal model this one does not have a bottom, it just sits on top of the pit. I made sure that our soil drains before ordering it but found out after installing that the soil drains too well, I would probably need to add water 4 or 5 times a day to keep it wet. I removed this one and replaced it with the metal can style which has been working well so far. I guess I would recommend it if your soil drains slowly enough to only need water once a day or less.

should be more durable

I have this and while the concept is great, the construction should be way more durable. The lid is plastic and with the constant open and close of lid, I' think they' should make it better and stronger hinges. Mine is broken and the screw fell out into the mess.

Kind of weak

I'd go for the metal version. The plastic gets compressed and dirt is getting in, filling up the hole, but it could just be me. Im using it, but I may have to dig a new hole for it.

Disappointed Dooley user

I had owned two Doogie Dooley products prior and found them to be very good products. The #3800 system is complete garbage. Don't waste your money or your time on this. The materials are very low quality (extremely thin gauge plastic and my system arrived with the lid mounted off kilter. See pics. I was skeptical when the box arrived and it was extremely light weight? Now I know why. Because this is super light weight and will not last long. Again, take a look at the pics with this review.

Great Product

I really like this waste disposal system. It's easy to use and I don't have to put up with a stinking trash can for a week. I certainly would buy it again. If you purchase this product be prepared to dig 2 deep holes. It was a lot of work to install The product description made it sound easy peasy which it wasn't. The digestive tablets are one per dog and you will be adding water to it two to three times a week. If you have more than two big dogs you will need more than one system. My yard no longer stinks since we have installed this product and even though it was a big big pain to install I love this product. It's well worth the time and money to buy this product. I would definitely buy it again if I ever need another one.

MUCH BETTER THAN CONSTANTLY HAVING TO DISPOSE OF BAGS OF ...........

There was no household job I disliked more than dealing with dog poop disposal. This invention has made it the least unpleasant as possible now! I watch my family's dogs quite often and have not had any trouble with the tank getting full at all, no matter how much poop is put in it! There is no odor and i have the tank in a far back corner of my yard, which makes it quite out of the way. I am waiting to hear when it is back in stock so I can purchase one for my daughter, who has a dog and two cats to clean up after. I think it will work for cat poop, too....haha! My son had purchased one, first, and recommended it to me. It is well worth the small price. Some people have constructed these type units on their own, but I just wanted to get something ready to go and easy to install (which it was). Needless to say, I recommend this product very highly. I had purchased the round model, at first, but exchanged it for the square type, since there is not a bottom in this one that can deteriorate over time.

Works for us, but I can see it would be limited

We had a great spot to put this. Away from the house but near a hose, and on a slope so it has excellent drainage. We tried to dig 4 feet deep as required, but we hit our sprinkler or something about 2 feet down. We stopped there and it still works fine. We hired someone to install it- it took a couple hours to dig/install and we had to buy a fence post digger. It was a massive pain and definitely not for all dog owners, but I think it's better than bags of poo sitting in my garage.

More than assembly required

Assembling the four panels can be done with ease because there are inlets on the inside of the panels to mark where the screws go. The top dome piece however does not have this feature. The four panels are supposed to screw into the top "dome" piece but there are no markings or inlets making it extremely difficult, for me impossible, to assemble with a phillips screwdriver. It's a hard plastic that they expect a short screw to go into (see photo attached). In the photo the plastic has a small dot that I made trying to screw the lid to the panels. I called the company and they said yeah you can use a philips but an electric drill would be best. I disagree. Based on my experience, unless you have an electric drill or can borrow or buy one, this item can not be assembled with a screwdriver alone.
