Not looking to compost it like this instructable
, I'm looking to build a DIY version of a Doggie Dooley
. I have an extra 55-gallon barrel from a rain barrel setup. I also have 2 saint bernards so the Doggie Dooley is nowhere near big enough for my needs. Is it as easy as cutting off the bottom half of the barrel, burying it adding some rid-x and water then tossing in the dog sh*t? I understand all the upkeep w/ adding water and whatnot but i wasn't sure if there were more steps I should be aware of. None of my neighbors have a well and the system will be located 50ft from my house and over 100 from all neighbors. I live in CO where it's incredibly dry and the soil should drain well. Anything else you need to know before making suggestions just ask. Thanks Me-fiers!
