IRET Uses DNA Testing To Track Poopitrators

Posted: Updated:
Not all dog owners are as responsible as they should be. Some might try to avoid scooping poop if they can.

There's an apartment complex in Minot that's pet friendly, but after finding that not all owners were picking up after their pets, the IRET company started dog DNA testing with a program called Poo Prints.

"Basically what this program does, is it allows us to dog test their DNA and have it on file. If we find dog doo-doo outside, we will take a sample, send it in, and if it comes back to the dog they get fined and or penalized," says IRET Community Manager Holly Haverstraw.

DNA results usually take about two weeks to come back. Once the company finds out who didn't pick up after a dog, it will issue a $100 fine.

A third offense results in immediate eviction.
