There’s no harm in a little poop in the woods right? If I had a dog I wouldn’t care to pick it up unless someone will step on it or if its in an obviously gross spot. But being in the grass amongst trees and other animal shit. I don’t see the problem. Yes and no. If it’s a really popular trail that has tons of dogs on it all the time. The cumulative amount of shit over time could change the nitrogen levels of the soil and fuck some shit up. Especially if the trail is near a water source or large aquifer. A similar thing happened to Hot Cousin Eddies 1989 Rv Maintenance No Shirtters Too Full Shirt Long Island because of septic tanks leeching too much nitrogen into the water table and surrounding bays. It killed the fishing industry in the area ~6000 jobs. Except a lot of people hike with dogs.

People go off-trail to go the bathroom themself, camp, etc, so even if it’s off the trail it’s pretty rude to Hot Cousin Eddies 1989 Rv Maintenance No Shirtters Too Full Shirt leave. Dogs don’t eat the same things that animals in the woods do, so a lot of dog shit can be (mildly but still notably) harmful to the watershed/ecosystem. Plus it can attract other animals which is why humans are always supposed to bury their stuff. It would be okay to bury a dog’s poop, but not just leave it there even if it’s off-trail. Hell, the dog shit will help fertilize the plants. Plastic poop bags won’t degrade. Bagging and leaving is worse than just leaving it. But is it really that hard to just carry the poop bag with you until you find a trash can?

I don’t really see how that’s trainable. I don’t have another dog and my dog isn’t interested in his own poop. Training requires repetition and it’s not like there is a steady supply of training materials(other dog poop. Yes, it does require repetition and that’s how you’re going to teach him. Sometimes training requires you to get out of your routine specifically for Hot Cousin Eddies 1989 Rv Maintenance No Shirtters Too Full Shirt that.
