The thread welcoming Joe Jenkins, author of The Humanure Handbook, has me wondering if the method he describes in his book can be used for dog waste as well. When looking up the book and reading some of the (very positive) reviews, someone mentioned that not much was written about dog poop. Perhaps someone has tried, however. If so, I'd be interested to hear the results.
I composted dog poo in a poultry mesh ring about 18" dia and 4' tall. I wrapped it with an additional cost concentric ring about 8" spaced and filled with wood chips for insulation. I would put wood chips on top of every batch of poop. it's the same as a composting toilet. I innoculated with black soldier fly and it was really off to the races. it's important to put a roof on the unit too to keep it dry
I was thinking about this too. I can't compost humanure now but I have dogs and I bury their poop separately, digging hole in the ground. I cover it with cardboard once in a while and spread some ash over if it gets smelly. Sometimes I also add regular compost stuff there which is more troublesome in the bin, like rotten fruit. When it's nearly full I cover it with soil and dig a new hole. I put the compost bin on top of the old hole sometimes, and seems like there's more earthworms in the "dog poop level" than above.
I was thinking of getting another dog which would be useful for a number of reasons, but the poop thing is discouraging... I guess it would be good to also have animals which make useful manure, which could be added to the dog poop. Maybe small birds or rabbits (or is there something especially good for that?).
