One of my first ever blog postings was about composting for dog owners. Clearing up after your pooch in the garden isn’t nice, but it has to be done. Certainly, when I had a terrier, there was no way I was ever going to get him to poop somewhere appropriate on demand (or do anything else on demand, for that matter).
One option is the Pet Poo Loo Wormery that I mentioned, but here’s a report from Marion Owen of PlanTea who visited City Farmer, a demonstration garden and compost site run by Canada's Office of Urban Agriculture in Vancouver.
Their solution has been to build a sunken DIY dedicated composter, keeping it sweet with a septic tank additive. It’s certainly popular. Presenter Mike Levenston reckons that, with 40 million viewers of his videos, plenty of these exist around the world.
City Farmer also provides instructions in words and still pictures (not to mention an insight into what happens in Calgary when the snow melts - ugh!), but see the video below for a quick explanation, and the one beneath for a visit to Sharon Slack, that's been working well for 15 years!
