Yes! Performing a "Perk Test" will prove beneficial in deciding whether a Doggie Dooley will be effective in your yard. 1. Dig a hole approximately 1 foot wide by 2 feet deep. (Test hole can be smaller than real hole.) 2. Pour approximately 5 gallons of water in the hole. ​3. Check the hole in 24 hours. If water is completely drained, you have fairly sandy soil and a pyramid style Doggie Dooley is recommended. If there is still standing water, check again after 48 hours. 4. If the water is gone, you can use either the tank or pyramid styles of Doggie Dooley. If after 48 total hours there is still standing water in the hole, a Doggie Dooley will not be an effective waste management system in that location of your yard. Test another site!

Before installing your Doggie Dooley in the hole, you'll want to make sure you have proper drainage. Fill the hole you just dug with water from the hose. It should drain away completely within 48 hours. If it doesn't, backfill the hole and try again in another part of the yard where drainage is better. An improperly draining hole causes the receptacle to back up, causing stinky overflow and preventing you from adding waste on a daily basis.

The system works like a miniature septic tank, using natural bacteria and enzyme cultures to reduce dog waste to a ground-absorbed liquid. After tank is properly inserted into the ground, simply shovel stools into the system, occasionally add water, and digester powder, a non-toxic mixture designedespecially for pet waste. Each unit comes with a starter 6-month supply of digester powder. The systems are harmless to pets, lawns, and shrubs and work well in all soil conditions except in areas with hard, non-draining clay soil.6. The soil may have too much clay content that prevents the absorbing of the liquid. If this is the case, the unit must be moved to an area with good soil. Ensure that the hole was deep enough and dug to original directions. If the hole has caved in due to soil erosion, you will have to move the Doggie Dooley to another area with a new hole. Fill in the old hole with dirt from the new hole.
