Get the Scoop on Our Dog Poop Removal

Dogs are a man’s – and woman’s – best friend. They comfort us, bring us joy, and are by our side through ups and downs. There is almost nothing to not like about a dog – except for maybe their poop. Pooping is inevitable, and with that comes the clean-up. If you have a yard, you understand all too well how downright gross it can be to step in an unexpected pile of poo. Dog poop is the unwanted gift that keeps giving – and like it or not, it’s not going anywhere. That’s where DoodyCalls comes in. We are a pet waste removal company that offers a variety of solutions for pet owners, commercial properties, and community managers.

The Commute That Changed Everything

In 1999, Jacob D’Aniello and his future wife, Susan, were fresh out of school with student loans to pay and only $50 between them. Commuting home from work one evening, Jacob was listening to a radio talk show when an interview segment came on about a man’s career as a pet pooper-scooper. Jacob almost changed the channel, but then it clicked – this man loved his job! Jacob’s wheels started turning.

His then-girlfriend, Susan, thought he was crazy – until he gave her the pitch. Then, she too jumped on board. The following week the young entrepreneurial couple started placing classified ads in local papers for DoodyCalls. Shortly thereafter, the phone started ringing.

It Started with a Housewarming Gift

The first DoodyCalls client responded to their website and wanted to purchase six months of pet waste removal services for a friend who had just bought a new home. The friend’s pet had already left far too many “presents” in the yard. Before Jacob and Susan knew it, they were leading double lives, scooping in the mornings and then changing clothes in the parking lot to go to their full-time jobs. Their side business was thriving. They invested all they could back into their growing business, but success, they discovered, had its own timeline.

Risking It All & Never Looking Back

In 2004, Jacob and Susan took a leap of faith and quit their day jobs to focus on DoodyCalls full time. They established company headquarters in Charlottesville, Virginia and began franchising nationwide.

DoodyCalls has since grown to have independently owned and operated locations in over 45 territories in 15 states and has been the subject of news stories in hundreds of publications. This includes two recognitions as the number one pet waste removal franchise in the United States by Entrepreneur Magazine’s annual Franchise 500 list. To put it plainly, DoodyCalls is cleaning up!
