FAQ

Can I test my yard to ensure the Doggie Dooley will work?

Yes! 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!

My Dog Swallowed the Digester Powder or Waste Terminator Tablets!

The Digester Powder and Tablets are made primarily with an inert carrier (wheat bran grain and sodium bicarbonate) and the active ingredient (a very small amount of protein based enzymes and bacillius subtillis bacteria). The enzyme and bacteria cultures are not harmful to humans or pets. Rinse mouth and face with water. Seek medical attention if redness or soreness occurs.

Not Draining

It seems like my unit is slowly filling up instead of being fully absorbed into the ground. What can I do?1. The tank will always have waste in it. The digestive action happens at the bottom of the pile, under the water. However, insure there is enough water in the tank. Water is the activator for the Digester Powder. Do not let the tank or stools become completely dry. As you add water, an equal amount should exit through the draining tubes (except for the Pyramid shaped models where there are no drain tubes). Do not worry about adding too much water as long as it’s draining. 2. For optimum bacteria activation, water should be between 50 degrees F and 90 degrees F. Not too cold or too hot. 3. Using the tank-style models, be careful not to wash away the Digester Powder or tablet immediately after adding the product. Note that water overflows through the opening near the top of the tank. Allow the Digester to sink into the water and be absorbed. If the waste has become like a thick paste, stirring in the Digester will help them get started again. Do not add waste for 24 hours, then add more water until the consistency is thinner. ​4. Adding enough Digester: Depending on the number of dogs and their diet needs the usage will vary. Add 1 tablespoon of digester powder or 1 Waste Terminator tablet per dog, per week. If your dog eats table scraps, or has a premium diet or high-fiber, you may need to increase the amount of digester. 5. The Digester will not work well in temperatures below 40 degrees. The Doggie Dooley will be dormant during the Winter months and then can be used once the weather has warmed up again. 6. The soil may have too much clay content that prevents the absorbing of the liquid. If this is the case, the unit must be moved to an area with good soil. Ensure that the hole was deep enough and dug to original directions. If the hole has caved in due to soil erosion, you will have to move the Doggie Dooley to another area with a new hole. Fill in the old hole with dirt from the new hole. 7. Add pet waste on a regular (daily) basis. This allows continuous breakdown. Do not wait until the end of the week and add a week’s worth of waste all at once overloading the unit.

Draining Too Quickly

My problem seems to be that my soil perks" too well, as I put 5 gallons and it drains so quickly that I don't think the Digester is having a chance to decompose the waste". Sandy soil will cause quick drainage in the pyramid style Doggie Dooleys. Several days worth of dog stools will create a layer of dog waste which will hold moisture. It is not necessary for the Pyramid models to hold water, only that the stools remain moist/wet.

Residuals

If I stop adding waste but continue to add water and Digester will everything be absorbed eventually and will the hole be clean? Some residual on the bottom of the tank is normal. This is a septic tank and it will never be clean again. If you stop adding waste but continue to add water and Digester, it will not break everything down.

Directions

Help!! I've lost the directions and want to get started as soon as possible.Add 5 - 6 gallons of water filling the septic tank with water. Add 2 T. of the Digester and then add 2-3 days worth of stools. Continue adding stools on a daily basis afterwards.

​"I've lost the directions to the Digester, how do I maintain the Doggie Dooley?"

If you have a pyramid model, add 5 gallons of water 2-3 times a week. Add one measured tablespoon of the Digester powder or 1 Digester tablet per dog per week and add stools on a daily basis. If you have a tank style model, add a gallon of water daily and 1 tablespoon of Digester powder or 1 Digester tablet per dog per week. Continue to add stools on a daily basis.

Insects and their Eggs

There are bugs in my Doggie Dooley. ​The enzymes and bacteria in the Digester will not kill anything alive. It will be necessary to spray the contents lightly with a bug bomb or some raid

    I think this will work.

    By on

    I was skeptical about this when I bought it, but when it arrived and I saw the design, I was confident that it would work. I have the other style of Doggie Dooley as well, and am on my 4 location with it because it simply fills up and doesn't seem to liquefy and dissipate into the ground very well. With this style, the process is more controlled at the top of the hole and then uses the overflow tube to transfer liquid waste into the hole that will dissipate much easier.

    So Far, Not So Good

    By on

    I'm trying to not have so many plastic bags of poop in the trash since we have two large dogs. Figured the Dooley might be a good idea, so we gave it a shot. Followed the directions 100% and dug the hole 4ft down. It's only been in less than a month and the more "stuff" that goes in the thicker the liquid in the Dooley gets. It is quite the smell, hard to get used to!!! We had a soaking rain one afternoon and the ground was so saturated the earth under and around the Dooley gave way. Now we are in the process of cleaning it out, not fun. We will move the Dooley somewhere else, add some p stone and use a wide pvc tubing, adding weep holes to the sides and keep our fingers crossed.

    works okay

    By on

    Two things to emphasize: doesn't work in cold weather (40 degrees and colder) so in Michigan that basically means it's useless 6 months out of the year. Also the poop that's disposed of has to be 'fresh'. That means picking it up and disposing of it into the Dooley as the dog drops it or shortly after. Poop that has dried does not break down in the Dooley as well as fresh poop.

    Poop Be Gone

    By on

    This is a great system. Living in New England, it was impossible to get more than 36 inches down, but this septic system seems to be working well. One large and one small dog and it's all good.

    Poop soup!

    By on

    That is what we call it! My son's job is to put water in everyday. It seems to be working as I figure as much as we have put in it, it hasn't filled up. I have actually started putting in 2 tablets a week. I feel like one wasnt quite enough. Only seems to smell when open. Happy with it so far!

    Septic tank for dog poop? Yes and it's so easy!

    By on

    I can't believe I never heard of this before. This is brilliant. Tip, install near your hose because you have to put in water everyday. Also, if you have an outside storage area, I highly recommend getting a rake and pan thing. It doesn't smell too bad, but the farther I can be when dropping in poop, the better!

    just as good as a human septic tank

    By on

    This was easy to install ... although it was a bit hard to get the full 4 feet deep. System is working fine. So much better than smelly bags or a smelly yard. I'm sure neighbors and garbage men are grateful.

    Works but could use improvements.

    By on

    Because the unit is plastic it's not as rigid as it could be, so the cover sticks, and then splashes when it finally pops open for me. It also splashes quite a lot when adding waste, although the biofilm in the unit keeps the odors almost unnoticeable. I'm using mine for 2 med sized dogs and installed over very well draining sandy soil, so I suspect long term I will be pleased with the results, much easier to keep the yard clean. Have been using 2 months so far in mid summer. I do wish it held it's shape and opened better and could get the splashing under control.

    Bad design

    By on

    I have used these systems for 28 years this one has a bad design the top which holds they weight off the poop plus water is made of plastic which can’t hold the weight and cracks! Needs a galvanized top! Then it would be 5*

    Two thumbs up!

    By on

    I highly recommend the Doggie Dooley. We have three medium size dogs and it is working as promised. Other than when I am adding the water, there is no odor. I love the fact that my garage no longer smells of waste all week long as I waited for the garbage removal every Monday. So happy a friend mentioned that this product even existed. Before that, I had no idea this was an option. I definitely recommend using a post hole digger with the installation.
