Even those who love dogs often don't love picking up after them.
But as William Schindler walked his four year terrier Lincoln every day, Schindler noticed a lot of people in his Silver Lake neighborhood were not doing their doggy duty.
"I get annoyed as a dog owner and see someone hasn't cleaned up stuff from their dog. It's not that difficult," according to Schindler.

But it's gotten so bad, one neighbor put up a mock grave as a warning, 'here lies the dog who pooped here.'
But Schindler's solution is less threatening. He's now offering his services as a pooper scooper.
His website, called Poo No More, offers to scoop the poop off the front lawns in his neighborhood for one dollar a day.
There's the catch though.
You have to be on Schindler's route, a one mile stretch of Griffith Park Boulevard between Lucille and Hyperion.
Yes, it's a dirty job but Schindler says it's better than wasting one's energy being angry, and he wants to send a message to owners who don't clean up after their dogs.
"Pick up your dog poo!"
