Dog DNA Testing – For What?

There is a company (PooPrints) that provides canine DNA testing services for apartment complexes and such. Why do apartments need canine DNA testing, you ask? To identify owners who don’t pick up after their dog after he/she has done it’s business. If you know what I mean…

Here’s how it works:

1) Dog owners who live on the property give a sample of their dog’s DNA via cheek swab.
2) The dog’s DNA is registered at PooPrints’ laboratory.
3) When the property manager stumbles upon left-behind poo, it gets tested for a match with the apartment’s registered dogs.
4) Guilty owner is caught.

Speaking for myself, I always pick up after my pups. That is, unless I’ve run out of bags and didn’t notice until it was too late. (Ollie is kind enough to carry them on her harness). When I reach for the bag and nothing comes out of the carrier, I cringe. I then cower away like a criminal leaving a crime scene.

What do y’all think about this?
