Business connects dog poo to owners

The Courier-Journal

LOUISVILLE - Now when your dog leaves his calling card on the neighbor's lawn, his name may really be on it.

The WaterSide at RiverPark Place apartment complex will start collecting dogs' DNA to find out which owners are leaving waste behind.

This month dogs that live in the apartment complex will have their DNA collected and put in a database through PooPrints, a pet waste management company.

Joseph Tucker, owner of the PooPrints franchise in Louisville, said his company is helping to keep harmful bacteria from littering the grass and sidewalk, and also saving the property money on cleanup.

"This is a way for everyone to go green," Tucker said.

Tucker bought the franchise last year and said business is starting to increase. WaterSide at RiverPark Place will be the second location in the area to use this policy - PooPrints has already been implemented at a property in Shepherdsville.

Nationally, PooPrints has seen business pick up, with 30 distributors in the United States. Chelsea Luttrell, a sales manager for PooPrints who covers Tennessee, said business has been growing in Nashville and Knoxville; the company is looking to expand to Chattanooga.
