Finally, a sensible discussion of the “poop” problem

The Denver Post recently ran an article that (finally!) reached past the juicy “poop” headline to start a more important discussion: “Yes, dog parks can be poop pastures, but are they unsafe?”

Our vote for the best line: “I’m a dog park proponent,” Lappin [a professor of Infectious Disease at Colorado State University] said. “My perception is that there are many more benefits for the psyches of dogs and their owners that are able to exercise and socialize in dog parks than there are downsides from infectious disease risks, provided simple precautions are followed.”
