It’s a can you’re supposed to spray on the doo for a mess-free
cleanup. It’s meant for the worst of messes. Let’s see if the Poop
Freeze works.

We all know the guilty face on our pets, and we know it usually means
a mess in the yard. But what if you don’t want to clean it up?

Enter the guys from Scoop Doodie. There’s Mark, the owner, and Jerry.
For anywhere from $10 to $25 a week, they’ll come clean up dog doo in
the yards of people in the greater Sacramento area.

The most challenging part of the job: Poop that isn’t so firm.

Enter Poop Freeze, which says it’s meant for that and other loose stools.

Today, they’re at the home of five dogs who are nice enough to have
left us a yard full of presents.

“This looks pretty sloppy,” Mark says. “That’s a good loose one still
put together. We can try it.”

Mark sprays for five seconds. “It feels like I’m spraying ice.”

Then he flips it over and sprays for five seconds more. “You can tell
it’s frozen. That’s nice.”

He rakes it up and we’re done. “That makes it easy.”

It’s also supposed to work indoors, so Mark brought a piece of carpet,
and Jerry puts a pile of poop on it. This time we spray, and decide to
flip it with the nozzle, like the directions state. It doesn’t flip

When Mark goes to pick it up, it’s a mess.

We decide to try it one more time on a mess in the grass, this time
using the nozzle to turn it over. But it doesn’t seem to have much of
a backbone.

After reverting to the professional tool, he sprays some more. “It’s
gone, that was 3 piles’ worth in one can.”

The company claims it’s a good emergency pet product, but what does Mark think?

“It comes out as such a pressure, it kind of wants to blow the stuff
apart,” he says. “It might be okay in a pinch, I’m still not real
impressed with it.”

That means there’s still business for him and Jerry.

It says it works for dog, cat and bird poop. A 10-ounce can goes for
$14.95, you can buy it at
