Answers on Google are all over the map.

Can one include dog poop in composting material?

Why or why not?

Pet Waste Composting


Pet Waste: Dog Poop and Kitty Litter, Too : Eco Child’s Play


What I get from these is to not compost dog or cat waste with the bin you use on edible plants but properly composted separately it is ok to use on ornamentals.

Thank you ever so much for your hyperlink to pet waste composting.

I used to have guinea pigs as pets as a kid and teen ager. When one would die I'd bury them in the yard. One died in the winter and the vegetable garden was the easiest place to dig so in it went. I dug as deep down as I could, over a foot deep and towards the edge. My mother was not happy when she found out. I always worry if when we plant tomatoes for her we might unearth it. I guess the soil is okay and the tomatoes are safe.
