dog poop! you've all problably talked about this before, but I'm curious. what do you all do with your dogs doody. It's not usually recommended for fertilizer. but all doody from anywhere eventually goes back to nature. why not dog crap if it has thoroughly rotted and has no pathogens in it?
The risk in using dog doo in vegetable gardens is that, some parasite might survive and incomplete composting process and you could get worms, and not just in your intestines. If you use it in your compost, don't use it in the vegetable garden and make sure it's completely composted and compost it with layered materials to make it a complete compost that breaks down in a reasonable time and doesn't stink really bad while you wait. It will help if your dog(s) eat good food too. Some of the commercial brands are full of coloring and synthetic products that don't break down very well. That's the straight poop!
