Apartments to use DNA testing to ensure dog poop clean-up

It sounds odd but some apartment complexes thinks that it is the best way to find out who’s not cleaning up after their pets.

The Timberwood Commons in Lebanon, N.H., opened this year and already has had problems with some residents who aren't cleaning up messes their dogs leave. So manager Debbie Violette is going to use commercially available DNA sampling kits to check the DNA that dogs leave behind when they go.

All residents who own pets are required to submit samples from their dogs so DNA profiles can be put on file. Debbie, takes a sample of the pile and sends it off to lab. Technicians there are able to determine the violators through a DNA match.

The kits cost $50 per pet, and the management says that's a cost the complex is covering.

Although they say they're not the first complex to implement this, it's getting national attention and mixed reactions from tenants and the community. Some tenants called it "extreme," while others called it "effective."
