As a dog owner, I'll never, ever understand the idea of bagging your dog's poop then leaving it on the trail. All too often I've heard the justification, "I'm hiking right back by here so I'll pick it up on my way back." The problem is that, without fail, there are just too many bags full of poop left on trails everywhere. Either people don't actually come back and pick it up or they simply make the decision to leave it there.

I just don't get it.

Hiking with our dogs is a privilege, not a right. As pet owners, we need to do all we can to ensure that we are good stewards of the lands where we spend time with our dogs. Otherwise, we may not have access to beautiful places in the future to hike with our dogs.
