  • They can survive for a few months. As long as your DD is practicing good hygiene there is not to much to worry about. Make sure he is wearing shoes and shoes are removed at the door. Washing hands after coming inside and before eating. even if he did come in contact with the poop chances are his body would be able to fight it off. I am NOT saying there is no risk just that the risk can be controlled.

  • Um....first thing you can do is clean the dog shit - that is just nasty.
