Picking up your dog's poop and removing it from your property is what we do.
But really, we're more than just a company that specializes in weekly pet waste removal. Poooh Busters is an entire team of professionals dedicated to providing the highest quality dog waste cleanup service for Calgary, Airdrie, Cochrane, Okotoks, Chestermere, Langdon and Strathmore. We don't offer other pet services like walking, sitting, grooming, etc. We concentrate on one thing only, keeping your yard free of pet waste.
We know our business and we're damn good at it!
Poooh Busters is lead by three Calgary, local entrepreneurs. We are building the city's most trusted pet waste removal company fueled by our love and dedication of all pets and by a lot of caffeine.
How'd You Guys Get Started Anyway?
In 2003 Roland Pearson hired pretty much the only pooper scooper company that existed back then. He needed someone to help him to scoop the poop from his yard. Unfortunately Roland's experience as a customer with that service was not a very positive one and because of that Roland thought to himself, "Hey, I can provide this type of service to Calgarians and I can do it better!"
Initially, Roland began by designing some brochures and started handing them out at dog parks and delivering them door to door in various neighbourhoods around the city. This was a slow and painful process that provided very slow growth. When Roland told his good friend Big Nate about his idea, Nate insisted that Poooh Busters needed a website in order to help expose the new company in a much more efficient way.
With absolutely no web design experience whatsoever Nate began to learn very quickly what it took to build and host a website. A few weeks later PooohBusters.com was born. From there Nate did everything he could to help market the company. Wrote online newsletters, increased the website's SEO ranking on Google, blogged and created the Poooh Busters Facebook page and Twitter feed. Nate set up cross marketing initiatives with other pet industry players helping us to become well known to the Calgary pet community.
Over the next couple of years business began to grow and Roland realized he actually needed full time help! Enter Erin Maughan. Back then she was actually a client of Poooh Busters and as Roland was cleaning Erin's yard, they became friends. At the time Erin was working in an office and frankly she was miserable. When the company Erin worked for was sold, she joined the ranks with Roland becoming his partner in business and eventually in life as well.
Nearly 12 years later, Poooh Busters has grown to service nearly two thousand homes every week with ten full time staff. Translated to weight, this success looks like nearly 11 tonnes of dog and cat waste collected from the yards of pet loving Calgarians every single month! Yup…11 tonnes.
When it comes down to it even with the growth and success they've experienced so far, the staff at Poooh Busters remain humble, decent folk who really love what they do!
You have no idea what a happy camper I am this evening because..... wait for it.... I went outside when I got home late this afternoon and guess what? All the poop from my 4 dogs was gone!!!
YEP GONE disappeared from the yard .... gone ... gonzo .... Poooh Busters was at my house cleaning up my 4 x 4 legged babies poops.....and I get twice a week service for the next 12 weeks thanks to Erin and Roland!!!
They figure I have enough to worry about right now and donated their services...so peeps, a lot of you have dogs and more then 1 of them, if you need an absolutely amazing service by great people....call Poooh Busters and get them to come out weekly or twice a week if you need it.
Worth every penny!!
Go to their website and see just how reasonably priced they are and tell them I sent you!

I happened to be home today while your staff serviced my yard, and took the opportunity to observe them in action from a second storey window (a little creepy, I know).
I was quite impressed with their thoroughness; they essentially "grid-walked" my yard to find poooh, as opposed to glancing around for piles that were obvious.
Thanks again for the great service, as well and the great customer service you've shown us. We will certainly be renewing when our weeks expire, as Poooh Busters is everything we want in a poop-scoop service.
What an amazing little business you have and hats off to the workers that do the "dirty work".
THANK YOU for taking the kitty litter. My hubby and I have already talked about extending the service another 12 weeks.
I just wanted to say thank you!
Yesterday I mowed the lawn and took all 12 fosters to the backyard, it didn't smell and we sat on the grass without worrying.
And instead of having to clean, we invited the neighbours over and everyone cuddled a puppy and played in the backyard. I hope that you might be able to swing by and meet the crew and babies!
They are the best little foster puppies I've ever had!
If you know anyone, these little ones are going to make great companions!
